It's been 9 years today since Philip and I met. I am still amazed that it happened at all! From the fact that we are from opposite sides of the country, to the fact that he wouldn't have been around the weekend I had first tried to come, to the fact that I very nearly missed my plane out of Charlotte (and I would have post-9-11...I was still lost on my way to the airport 20 minutes before take off!!), to the fact he almost decided to go build speakers that night instead of going swing dancing with a girl he didn't know. It's still amazing we hit it off enough that he showed up everywhere I was that weekend and we developed enough of a friendship to continue after I left. I am still amazed that he waited only 2 days to call me (and that he feels that was a lifetime!) and that yet we managed to not move the relationship "to the next level" for more than a year and a half. I am still amazed that he stuck around through all the crazy bumps and ups and downs of our relationship, through all my quirks and the unusual requests from me and my parents. I am still amazed that despite it all, he married ME! And nine years later, he amazes me still by the husband, father and man that he is. :)
Happy 9 Year "Know-a-versary!"
