On this day, 8 years ago, the hubby & I said our vows. I had just turned 19 and he wouldn't be 19 for another month and a half. Not many people thought we'd make it this far. But we have weathered ups & downs, kids, moves, deployments, surgeries, and stress. It wasn't always easy, and I know it won't be a bed of roses every day from here on out, but it will always be worth it.
