I’m taking a rare day off from recipe sharing today to send a shout out to my one and only husband of 10 years. Yep, that’s right, we’ve been married 10 years today.
We met 14 years ago through the internet back before it was the “cool” place to meet people. I had just graduated from college and moved to a new city far away from friends and family. I created a friend page hoping it would help me to meet people and make a few new friends. It definitely lived up to it’s purpose. I met all levels of people; some became friends, others not so much. But the one that had a lasting impact above all others was my now husband Scott.
I remember it as clear as if it was yesterday. He emailed me to tell me found my page and was coming to Phoenix (where I lived at the time) for a business trip and would I like to show him around the area a bit. It sounded like fun to me, so I said absolutely. One week later, we met for the first time and I knew right then and there. There is just something about his smile that drew me in from the first moment I laid eyes on him. And the rest, as they say, is history. We spent every free moment together while he was on his trip and one and a half months later I was accepted to graduate school in Colorado Springs where he lived, so I packed up my things and headed north.
Four years from the day we met, we were married at a beautiful little church in Annandale, VA. The ceremony was an intimate affair with only our closest friends and family and it was absolutely perfect.
Scott, I love you with all my heart and I love the life we have made together. The first 10 years have been amazing and I know that the best is yet to come. Thank you for choosing me. I look forward to walking through this life with you for many years to come.

Happy anniversary! We have almost the same story. I met my husband on the Internet over 14 years ago and we dated 3 1/2 years before getting married. It's a wonderful thing to find your best friend in unique places!
