9 Years


June 25th, 2005

9 years ago today was one of the BEST days of my life!  It is the day I married the love of my life.  I know that completely sounds cliché but it is 100% true.  young kim and jaredI knew after the first time I hung out with Jared that I would marry him.  It took him a little bit longer…but eventually he figured it out.  He’s my rock and I’m his wind.  He holds things in place when I mix things up and make it a bit crazy.  I like to say that he calmed me down but I taught him to have a little fun.  wedding

Our wedding day was the perfect celebration of the start of our journey together!  We filled up a church with family and friends, headed to the farm for drinks and food before the final reception where we danced the whole night…I even had bruises on the bottoms of my feet that I never felt until morning.

Do I still wake up and can’t believe that I’m not sick of him yet?  Yup!  AND I can’t believe he’s not sick of me yet!  Trust me…I’m Emotional!2007 kim andj aredCould I have accomplished what I have without him and his support?  No way!  (And he’s pretty great at building more shelves for my fabric stash too..)2009 kim and jared

Would I do it again?  In less than a heart beat.  Looking back through pictures…we have accomplished so much together so far and I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us.
