Happy Anniversary.

Rachel and Tom Wedding 2004

Nine years ago today I married my best friend.

In a funny turn of events I asked him to marry me. It’s true.

But in his defense we had a long 10 year on again, off again relationship. He had asked me to marry him before and I always said yes. But for one reason or another it never happened. He told me once that if we were ever going to get married, I would have to ask him.

And I did. Late one night on January 18, 2004 I asked. He thought I was joking but he said yes.

A short 3 days later and we were married. Our honeymoon consisted of me moving in with him. Then by that Friday we were both back to work.

It was quick. It was a whirlwind. I wouldn’t change any of it for the world.

Because on that day I married my soul mate.

Happy Anniversary my love!
