20 Years Ago Today........

Aaron and I went out on our very first date. The best Halloween of my life. We were just 16 years old. Juniors in high school. Younger even, than our oldest daughter is now. I think I knew from the second he called me and asked me out that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. We didn't even do anything that exciting. We went to Burgerville with a group of friends, and then went to another friends house to hang out. The exact moment of "Oh my god, I love this boy? ". We were standing around talking. Aaron was sitting on a chair, I was standing next to him. He looked up at me, grabbed my hand and pulled me onto his lap. So nonchalantly, so casually, I'm pretty sure he had no idea that he was turning my world upside down.

Now, 20 years, 3 houses, and 9 kids later, we have the best life ever.
