Three years today

Tom and I met in 2001, started dating the last week of 2007, and got married three years ago today.

If, the day before Tom asked me out on a date, someone had told me that I was about to go on a date with Tom Krieger I would have laughed in their face.

In fact, a few friends had already floated the idea that…maybe? Maybe Tom and I would make a good couple?

But then Tom did ask me on a date. And halfway through that date I ran to the bathroom and texted a friend because I was on a date with Tom Krieger! It was a fact so unbelievable that I imagined I’d wake up in a few hours and email my best girl friends about the weird dream I had where I had coffee with Tom Krieger and he paid for my drink.

Eventually Tom convinced me that dating him was a good idea, so marrying him seemed like an even better idea.

And do you see that smile? Well, I’ve been smiling like that ever since.
