11 Years and Counting


This was taken 11 years ago today.  It’s hard to believe, really.  Jason and I met at the B.Dalton in Arlington, Virginia, where I was manager.  His Navy buddy worked there part-time and Jason wanted to use his buddy’s discount to buy a book (my hubby does know how to stretch a dollar, unlike his wife 🙂 ).  His friend put in a good word for him, which I must admit was needed.  You see I was 24, enjoying dating in a new city, and Jason was only 19 and living in the barracks.  But when he came in to the store to ask me out I was blown away by his confidence.  Seriously, that is the first thing I remember about him and it drew me in immediately.  We had our first two dates in one weekend and 2 1/2 years later we were married.   We are currently living our very own happily ever after.

PS – I am wearing my Mother’s wedding dress.
