Tomorrow will mark 8 years since I met my husband. I'm not much of a numbers person but I like dates. Especially when they work out so nicely. We met September 2, 2008 on my first day of high school. We started dating March 2, 2009 (coincidentally also my birthday (1993) and the day that... Continue Reading →
