A Love Story

Christmas 2003.

That is when I met this guy:

I can’t find any 2003-04 Pictures – But this was 07 — I knew right then he was a keeper! This is him with my niece ❤

I knew he was way out of my league.  I was a tomboy basketball player and he was a pretty boy, done with High School dude.  His brothers went to school with me and my very good friend Jasmine was dating his brother, Josh.  Who knew an awkward hello would turn into 8 years of a wonderful relationship.

After a big interview… He got the job!

We have so many memories together.  We met when I was a junior in high school and I moved in with him pretty young.  No one else believed me, but I knew I had found the one.

Hector is amazing.  He is truly my best friend, soul mate and the love of my life.  We were prom dates:




We became Auntie (Tia) Jenny and Uncle (Tio) Hector (x5!  Aaliyah, Izabel, Jayden, Jackson and Natalie):

We have celebrated many holidays together:


Countless events, like graduations and ceremonies:

A puppy:


More birthdays, more holidays, more memories… Finally, an engagement:


Many goals have been discussed and accomplished, and long talks about the future.  We also tied the knot:

Like I said, we have been through a lot.  Ups and downs, new life and the end of life.  We have made amazing friends, lost loved ones… He is my rock, always there.

We also have had an abundance of blessings and some unexpected twists:


We have survived it all.  We have grown.  I can’t imagine my life without him.  He truly is family.  My family loves him more then they love me 😉 and that is ok because he really is that special.

This is just a post about love.  I’m feeling nostalgic because our one year wedding anniversary is coming up.  It has been an amazing life with him so far, and I look forward to growing old with him.  He isn’t only my husband anymore, he is the father of my son.  We have a dog together and a home together.  It has been a long road that feels so short, yet I can’t remember life without him.  We started dating when I was 17 – how the heck did 8 1/2 years fly by?

They have been amazing… Now to go snuggle with my hubs! [and the baby and Oso of course!]
