My highschool sweetheart

I married my best friend.
I married my soulmate.
I married my love for life.

but,
I also married my highschool sweetheart.
With that comes extra-special STUFF.

Tonight I had to retrieve an object out of the crawlspace. As I climbed out from under the house, some small baskets caught my eye.
Tyler - "Mom, what is that stuff, why are you taking all that out of the crawlspace."
Me - "These are all the love letters your dad wrote to me."
Tyler - "How long ago?"
Me - "A very long time ago."

Because I am feeling sentimental, I thought I would share part of one.

Kristie,
It's been a while since I wrote you, and I'm gonna write you now and tell you how much ... I love you.....Infinity....Infinity.....Infinity....Kristie, there is so many dreams I have for you and I, Katie, and whoever else might be part of our family by then. (It would be nice to have a little boy, but either will do)!
I think about what kind of house we will have. Will it have a nice yard with a playground, for our beautiful kids? Will we have a couple dogs that will run in a creek and play in the back yard? Will we have a fireplace to sit in front of and warm our feet or drink from our wine glasses? Well, Kristie, I know for a fact that any dream you or I have will come true, because between the two of us, we can, will and do - do anything. Because with the love we both have for each other, we have what it takes to do anything we want.............

Thank you Lord, for giving me a husband that has always believed in 'US'. And who is dedicated to making sure 'US' is always following our dreams.
