Nine Years

Today marks the 9th anniversary of when Justin and I started dating. Nine years. That’s a long time.10-27-07_1559 123 067

We were high school sweethearts and he waited to marry me for seven of those years.

He waited patiently for me to graduate high school and shortly after we were engaged with the understanding that I was moving three hours away for college and it would be another four years before we got married.

Yes, you sure are a lucky girl!! :) That's neat you went to GA Southern. We won't be far at all from Statesboro! How did you like it there? We just signed a one year contract, so we'll see how it goes!

I loved Statesboro. I'm from a very small community so it was a good fit for me--not too big (ATL would have given me shell shock) and not too small. It has grown tremendously since I've graduated. I'm sure you'll love it!
