Seven Year Itch

Seven years and two and a half hours ago today, Ian and I celebrated our wedding and began our life together. Well . . . We began the married portion of our life together.

As many of you know, our lives actually intersected many long years before that wedding day. Ian and I met in Jr. High school, and began dating in May of 1993. This is a picture from Ian's senior prom, in June of '94.

I know that being high school sweethearts makes us a bit freakish in this day and age, and believe me, I know it's not for everyone. For me, however, there could never be anyone else. I can't imagine my life without Ian, and I am grateful that we met and married young, so we could share so much of our lives together.

I love you so very much, Ian, and I have enjoyed every minute of being your wife (snoring and leaving paper towels out notwithstanding). I can't wait for the next part of our adventure together to unfold!


Ian said...

1st:I love you lots!
2nd:God look at my hair! I had so much hair in high school...sigh...Im glad you are still keeping my bald self around.

I knew you were going to have a whole cats-in-the-cradle thing about your long-lost hair.

(sorry to intrude on this sweet moment ...)

Congratulations, you two. Annie and I count ourselves blessed for having you as such good friends. Your love and devotion to one another is evident in all that you do. You are an inspiration.

And we are so grateful that together you can meet life's challenges with confidence and a sense of humour. You are both such unique individuals yet the perfect balance for each other. Thank you Chelsa for choosing someone who is happy to hang out in the garage and talk about politics, religion and music with your dad. And thank you both for creating our beautiful bug-a-boo-eyed grandson.
Happy Anniversary

has Ian invited yound stupid women into your home while you were away?

(because that's how the movie goes)

Seriously though if someone had told me 10 years ago that you guys would be happily married with a beautiful baby boy after 7 years I would have said "duh"... you can't find a more perfect match :)

<3 you guys
