I have had a lot of different things on my mind lately. I will eventually blog about all of them soon. One of the things that I've been thinking about the most is my husband. His determination, patience, sense of humor and his love for me and Sav. I have found it to be so amazing how he has changed over the years that I've known him. As a result our relationship has changed too.
I met my husband in April of 2002. I was attending a minority weekend orientation at our college, East Carolina University, when he introduced himself to me. It was like he popped up out of no where. We instantly had a friendly connection. A chemistry that could only be described as comfortable. We had a comfortable chemistry. I felt like I had known him my whole life. Like we had been friends for years. We dated through out college. Like some college couples do we broke up and got back together a few times. I like to think that that's part of our fun past. We still talk about those days. There's his version. My version. And the truth is probably some where in the middle.
Anyway. When I think about what he was like at 21 I would have never guessed that he would be the man he is today. The college frat boy that I knew would never be a home body that enjoys singing the Fresh Beat Band's "Great Day". Love and marriage has certainly changed him. It has changed us. For the better. We are happier. Funnier. And crazier (in a good way).
I am so thankful for my husband. Grateful. I am still enchanted by his smile. And his eyes. He still gives me those butterflies I had as a college freshman. In December we will celebrate seven years of marriage. I feel so blessed. Our journey has been love filled. One of the greatest things about marriage is that it provides you with the opportunity to fall in love for the rest of your life. Because of Him and him I'm still falling. And I'm so grateful for that...
