Fifteen years ago...


Fifteen Years ago on October 21st I started dating an older boy....

I was fourteen years old and not allowed to officially "date" and he was seventeen. I got so tired of everyone telling me how young we were...

Today I am a few months from thirty and wonder how I got here so fast

Fifteen years ago I wore his class room with a huge amount of yarn wrapped around the back and today I've replaced that class ring with a wedding band.


Fifteen years ago I moved all my stuff from the freshman hall to the senior hall and we shared a locker. Today we share a house that he built with his own hands exactly the way I wanted it.

Fifteen years ago I used to daydream about what our children would look like and what we would name them...today I wake up everyday to their three precious faces
Fifteen years ago I thought I had never seen brown eyes as sweet as his were...

Today I look in the same eyes in the face of my son and know I was wrong.

Fifteen years ago I thought that older boy would never love another girl as much as he loved me... Today I am amazed at how much he loves his two baby girls

Fifteen years ago I thought time crept so slowly until we got to see each other again

Today when I tuck our children into bed I silently wish with all my heart that time would slow down.
