15 Years Ago...

15 years ago today, I was just a few weeks shy of turning 22 years old. 

15 years ago today, I'd been without my mother for 4 years.

15 years ago today, I was steps away from inheriting a full-on family.

15 years ago today, I walked down the aisle at my home church in Nashville and committed my life to my best friend in the world.

I was 21 years old and he was 36, the age I am now.  I was barely "legal".  I get ribbed all the time that while Steve was graduating from high school, I was toddling around in diapers.

I am pretty sure no one thought we would make it for long.  But they didn't know us.  The road hasn't been easy.  Marriage isn't easy and if you are unmarried or engaged and hoping to be married soon, do not listen to the lie that it's all a fairy tale and happiness.  Marriage is work.  It's hard.  But the dividends are worth every tear.

I not as in love with Steve today as when we married.  I am in love with him MORE!  He is my rock and we fit together perfectly.  I can't remember life before him and I don't want to do life without him.

Steve Taylor, Happy Anniversary!  No one thought we'd make it this far.  And this is just the beginning.  Here's to 15 more years together!  I LOVE YOU!
