Jake and I were married on June 2, 2001 at 11am. It was a Saturday, overcast, and I was worried it would rain. The whole day though, despite being a little chilly at the reception, turned out perfectly, exactly how I had hoped my wedding day would be. Now 8 years later, it's hard to believe all we have been through and yet 8 years is nothing in the grand scheme of things. We've graduated college, had 3 kids, Jake graduated law school, we have had many different jobs (some great and some not-so-great... like computer tech support at Alorica which Jake hated, or me as a receptionist at a copy machine store, ugh). We have owned 5 cars, and only one of those was a piece of crap. (We lucked out!) We lived in student housing three times, lived with Jake's grandpa, my parents, a rental in Klamath Falls, Oregon, and Sugarhouse, and finally bought our own house in 2007. If you would have asked me 8 years ago where I thought we would be in 8 years, I would have said "happily married with a couple kids, a house, a good job, and lots of love and laughter." I'm lucky to have all that and more.
So, Jake already made me a 10 minute video with pictures of us put to music, and then he added himself talking for a little bit. I can't compete with that and I'm not going to try. I just want him to know I love him and am so glad he's mine. I know I'm not the easiest person to live with sometimes, but thankfully he still puts up with me. I'm really lucky. Love you, babe.
