6 Years

The past 6 years have gone by so fast. December 28, 2002 Eric and I got married at St. Paul Methodist here in Abilene. I was only 19 at the time and I was the first of my friends to get married. I met Eric during Welcome Week of my freshman year. Lauren and I followed a friend of ours (Brock) to Eric's house where Brock was doing his laundry. When Eric got home, Lauren and I were sitting on his couch. He had no clue who we were! After that we started hanging out - Lauren, Brock, Brian, Eric and I.

Eric and I went on our first date September 15, 2001. We went and raced go karts (and Eric's ran out of gas), went to eat at Outback (where he had just quit working to start the police academy), went to the movies to see Jeeper's Creepers (which we walked out of after about 10 minutes), and went back to his house and watched Tarzan. Then on January 1, 2002 Eric proposed in a gazebo in Dallas in a park covered in Christmas lights.

He has been a wonderful husband and an amazing father. I am so blessed to get to spend my life with him. He understands me (most of the time), takes care of me and loves me unconditionally. I could not have imagined someone better. I am so lucky. And I can't wait to see what our future holds!

Now for the good stuff. Here are some fun pictures of us in the early days!
