is how long Josh and I have been married! Today was our Anniversary. 11 years ago me, a 7 month pregnant 19 year old and Josh a 20 year old geek decided on a whim to get married. We drove down to Ohio with the little money we had on a cold and rainy day to elope. Told nobody. We panicked a little thinking we weren't going to make it before it closed...turns out we just didn't turn back the clock in the car ! When we got there we realized that it cost more than we had on us. So the nice man waited around while Josh ran to the ATM. When he returned...he informed us that the machine ate his card! Yikes! The man was so nice. He wrote down his home address and told us to send him the $20.00 whenever we could and he went ahead and married us anyway! Seemed like all odds were against us but it kept working out...and look at us now! We took one picture of ourselves with a disposable camera held out in front of us. We no longer have the picture, but the memory holds strong. That was the beginning of our loving, complicated, crazy, fun, stressful,wonderful marriage that I wouldn't trade for anything.
Happy Anniversary Josh! I love you.
