4: H O W W E M E T | For as long as I can remember I always knew that Love at First sight was a real thing. I knew that it was the only way to truly fall and I believed in my heart of hearts it would happen to me. As I grew up it was a driving principle for my life and I was waiting for The One | On a warm evening in late August 1999 all of my dreams came true in an instant. I was introduced to the most beautiful woman I had even seen. Like a flash of lightening I instantly knew that this Angel is the love of my life, The One.
5: As that fateful night progressed I only feel deeper and deeper into Love with her, this stranger, The One. At the end of the night I could no longer contain myself and told her how I felt, I told her that I knew when I met her this evening that we would be married. In hindsight, this may not have been the best decision. She responded appropriately and left. | Whether it was fate, luck or True Love, my angel returned to me. She wanted to know if I meant what I said, if I could really have know. My response that day is the same as it is today and the same as it always will be. I have loved you since before I met you and I will always love you, with all my heart, all my soul and all I am. You are a part of me. We are One, now and forever | The One

17: When I imagine the perfect family it is one that can laugh together, cry together, and loves one another unconditionally. I love that we can be silly together, that makes us fun. I love that we laugh together, that makes us strong. I love that we cry together that makes us Family.

23: Today marks the day of our first 10 years together. They have been beyond expectation, exceeding any dreams I thought I had of what the perfect marriage would entail. I believe that this picture is a perfect snapshot. I barrel through life without a care in the world and while you keep us grounded and safe but we are both having fun and we are in this together. As we move forward in this adventure I can't imagine anyone else I would rather have by my side. We will only grow stronger in our love for each other. I am beyond Thankful that I was able to find the love of my life, my soul mate, my other half to spend these first 10 years with and every year into the future.
