That’s how long it has been since I graduated high school.
That’s how long it has been since I have seen my step father, brother, cousins, friends, & grandparents.
That’s how long it has been since I made a life changing decision.
That’s how long it has been since I left Alaska. That’s how long it has been since I have live in Wisconsin.
That is how long it has been since I have found myself in Larry’s arms and that is how long it has been since we have been together. And I freaking love it.
On July 6,2000 I got on an airplane at Ted Stevens international airport in Anchorage, Alaska. And I flew to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to see a guy whom I had met in a talk city chat room a few years prior. I told everyone that I was only going for the summer and I would be back in a month or so.
Yeah, we see how that worked.
In 2002 I gave birth to our oldest daughter and we became a family of 4! We bought a house, went through some turmoil, recovered slightly, Larry lost his job, had another daughter in 2010, and still we are going strong despite everything tossed our way. We have our moments but we always come out swinging. (in a good way)
So, on our 11th anniversary (on the 6th) I have to say that I am so happy and in love even though we are not married. *gasp* but I am ok with that.
Good things come to those who wait right?
Here is to many more years of a happy life together. I can’t wait to see what our future holds together.
