We’ve been together for 11 years, but we’ve been married for 3 of them as of October 1. If you’ll allow me to get mushy for a moment, I’d like to say that I think I fell in love with Nick and first sight but it took me a while to realize it. Now, I couldn’t imagine my life without him. He’s the love of my life, my best friend, and my biggest support. This past year has been really difficult for the two of us, with me being away and busy with school most of the time, and Nick has been there for me through all of the tears, laughs, long nights, and good times. So I love that I get to celebrate our life together with him on the first of this month.
