Happy Anniversary To Us!

11 years ago today I married my best friend... My best friend that through no matter what has stood by me. Although we have had our fights and made up and been through some bad times in our life from being real sick to being homeless he is still the man I love. I would never take back one moment that I have been with him because for each bad moment we had we had so many more good ones. Although he lacks being a hopeless romantic like me he is still the one who keeps me on my toes. We were such opposites to attract and I know we were destined to meet so many times in our life before we actually met. We can finish each others sentences and I truly want to spend the rest of my life with him. I have been lucky I'm sure to have found a good man who doesn't control everything I do, who has never hit me, who has been genuine and by my side for 11 years.

It almost seems like yesterday we met, that day was March 15th 2000 and it was only by voice on a chatline. I used to talk on chatlines to some of my friends before I had a computer and it works about the same just alot are blind on the lines. I sworn off talking to anyone I didn't know and was a complete Biatch to anyone who tried. Well that day was the day Joe kept sending me connection requests he sent me like 50 before I got irritated and connected. I was rude and nasty to him but it only intrigued him. From that moment we talked everyday up until the end of May when we decided he would move from outside Philly, PA in with me in NC. He came down by bus and I met him June 4th he came by taxi to my house. the moment we met we just knew.

We knew we were meant to be together and that very night right in front of candle light and wine he proposed to me and I said yes. almost exactly 2 months later on August 3rd 2000 we woke up knowing everything still felt so right and decided lets get married today. Well sadly we lived too far to elope in Vegas so with close family we went down to the magistrates office to get married. Its kinda funny because we almost didn't get married the 3rd was almost the 4th. We got to the magistrates not knowing we had to go to the court house first to get the papers so we went there and it was 4:45pm when we got them and left to go back to the magistrates office. We were married right about 5pm when we had everything signed and all. It was a happy day for us both

We have been through so much along the way and if I had to redo my life in anyway I would choose not too because I think everything before him led me to him and everything since we have been together has made us stronger. I don't think I can say enough about the man I love so much but this may sound cheesy but Tom Cruise had it right "He Completes Me". So here's to another happy 11 years to go!! Happy Anniversary Baby (if your reading this I Love You).
