10 Years

Ten years ago today Craig and I went on our first date! I can't believe that 10 years have gone by already! We were 17 and ending our junior year in high school! We went to dinner & a movie! We ate at Burger King (ha! true story) and saw Along Came a Spider. Little did we know what we were starting that night...here we are 10 years later. We have done a lot in those ten years, here are a few highlights:
  1. Graduating high school (05.2002) We graduated number 5 & 6 in our class of 52...the order is still up for debate!
  2. Attending & graduating college at UNL (me-5.2006, Craig-5.2007) We said "good-bye" to our little farm towns and headed for the big city of Lincoln! We had no idea this is where we would be making our home!
  3. Both purchased our first vehicles (me-11.2006, Craig-7.2007) This was a big deal for both of us, and we are just a couple months from having them both paid off!
  4. Entered the workforce full time (2006 & 2007) We quickly learned what the "real world" was like. We are still trying to adjust!
  5. Got Engaged (12.12.2007) We were supposed to celebrate my 24th birthday with our friends, but before dinner Craig proposed! Everyone was hoping, but I don't think anybody thought he would ever ask! Best Birthday Ever!
  6. Bought a house (06.26.2008) We closed on our house about 6 weeks before our wedding, but didn't move in until a week after our wedding right after our honeymoon! Almost 3 years later, we are still making it our home!
  7. Got Married! (08.08.08) One of the happiest days of my life! Our wedding day was perfect, perfect weather, all our friends & family there to celebrate, we couldn't have asked for more!
  8. Got a puppy (09.17.08) We saw little Izzy and instantly fell in love! She was and will always be our first-born! Our lives would be so empty with out that little fur-monster!
  9. Got pregnant (found out 08.07.09) We were blessed and didn't have to try long, we were both a little shocked when it happened! It was a great first anniversary present!
  10. Had Delaney Jo! (03.19.10) The happiest day of our lives! Delaney has definitely changed us, but I think for the better! Craig shows a completely different side when he's with his little girl...melt my heart!
We have traveled near & far together! We have made many new friends! We have lost others along the way! We have left our homes and moved into a home of our own! We have gone from single, to dating, to engaged, to married, to parents! We have laughed, cried, swore, and fought! We have been through a lot to say the least, and we have done it all together! We were so young and naive when we jumped into this with both feet, but I'm so thankful we did! I couldn't have picked a better partner for my life, and I can't wait to see what the next 10 years has in store for us! I love you Craig!
