♥17 years ago♥

17 years ago today i had my first date with this crazy and loving man (is it crazy that i remember the exact date we had our first date?).  i had no idea what to think of this {then} long hair and tattooed guy.  thankfully he was basically the exact opposite of anyone i had dated prior.  he was funny like woah {we would laugh for hours at absolutely nothing, seriously}, he was a little wild {which made my mama a little skeptical...okay, a LOT} but most of all he was so sincerely nice {which i was totally not use to from past relationships}.  we went to pizza hut and hung out with friends.  i remember it like it was yesterday, from the butterflies in my stomach to laughing non-stop all evening.  and from that day on we spent as much time together as we could.  and four months later we were married ♥ 

i love you babe.  thanks for taking a chance and sitting in the snow that night =)

out for now

disclaimer...i must add that saying we were married 4 months later does not, in any way, mean that i approve of that for my own children.  joey reminds me all. the. time. that he has been dating his girlfriend longer than i dated his dad.  and he also tells me how stupid it is to only date 4 months and then get married.
