Wednesday Gratitude

This week (and most every week) I am grateful for my soon to be hubby!

Here is the short story... I could go on and on!

Over 4 years ago we met for the very first time at a local Starbucks. I knew within 10 minutes of meeting and talking with him that I was going to marry him someday. No joke, I really knew this day would come.

Here is a photo of our first date, 6 days after meeting at Starbucks. It was like we had known each other for ever! We shared most everything in common.














Here we are a few weeks later, salsa dancing...

Hanging out with friends...















Playing volleyball together (something we do weekly)!


Toasting our first Christmas dating each other...
The following year I broke my ankle playing soccer and he was my third crutch!

2 years after first meeting and starting to date he proposed to me at the very Starbucks we first met. And without hesitation I said yes!
He came with a dog...

I came with 2 sons...
1 dog + 2 sons + 2 love birds = 1 big happy family

I could not have been more fortunate to have walked in that Starbucks in 2006. I met the man of my dreams! A tall, dark hair, dark eyed, super smart, extremely funny, sexy gentleman. One that shares my interests, passions and values.

On April 26th, 2010 I will be able to call that man, who is my best friend.... HUSBAND.

Congratulations! Best wishes for a wonderful wedding day, and an even better Happily Ever After. One question, will there be Starbucks coffee at your reception? ;o)
