8 years and counting

Sept 03- that's right, NINE years ago!
Thank you Nana for taking this photo. It is one of my all time favorites of Caleb and I.
I remember the moment vividly. It was my first trip to Fresno. Caleb and I had been dating for three months and everyone thought I was crazy for going to meet the family so soon. But to be honest Caleb and I knew were were going to get married from the day we started dating. In fact, he asked me to marry him one month into our relationship. Unfortunately for him, I had heard all that a couple of times before, and even though I was sure he was it, I asked for a rain check :).  Anyway, back to the photo. So I was in Fresno for the weekend and Nana kept trying to get a nice picture of our trip, but I really really hate pictures so I kept hiding. At last she caught us on our way to church and (in essence) said, Ok, now let's get a picture. So we obliged and I have been truly grateful ever since. As I said before, this is one of my favs.

I love the way Caleb just threw his arm around me and held me close, it totally took me by surprise. He was in love and he knew it; and he didn't mind sharing those feelings with the world. I guess that's why I love this pic. It captured two young kids in love.

Happy 8th year Anniversary! May we live to see many many more years together.
