My 4 Year Anniversary!

Yes, today is my 4 year anniversary! God has blessed me with a wonderful husband and a wonderful 4 years married! I have been with my husband for 8 years now and it still feels like yesterday when I first laid eyes on him! I was 15 and I knew that I was in love with him. Well I never published the story of my engagement so here it is:

It was July 4th, 2003. We had a picnic planned with my sisters family at the beach. We were enjoying our day when my husband, back then boyfriend, decides he has to run and go get something from the store. I wasn't too keen on him leaving me there but I figure how long can it take 15, 20 minutes. No, more like 3 hours!!! I was so mad at him! When he came back to the beach I swore I wouldn't talk to him. Later that night we went to my parents house and he offered to take me to this golf resort to go watch the firework display. I agreed, and we headed to the ninth hole of a world renowned golf course, where he worked at the time, and he pulled out a duffel bag and blanket and set it up on a hill in the most perfect spot to see the fireworks. As we were watching the fireworks, he pulled out these sparklers that were at least 3 feet high and encircled the blanket with them. At this point I thought, wow, he is really trying to make up for leaving me all day on the 4th. He lit the sparklers they were so bright and colorful and beautiful all around us! I was so entranced by them I didn't noticed that he was on his knee and holding a box that held the most beautiful ring in the world. He said the most heartfelt words, that now are a blur since the moment was a little too much to comprehend and proposed! Here we are 4 years later still living in the moment (at times).
So anyways, enough rambling for tonight... Goodnight!
