Happy Anniversary ...

You all know how I feel about keeping it silly.

One day my friend Jody and I were driving back to work from lunch when my cell rang and I could see that it was Eric calling. Now at this point Eric was still a crush and we had just started getting to know each other. So when he called I was so excited and giddy I could hardly contain myself. I paraded my phone around for a few seconds and even made out with it right before I answered it. Here's our convo ...

Me: Hey Eric, what's up? (totally cool)
Eric: Hey, not much. Where are you going?
Me: (Clueless) What do you mean?
Eric: We've been driving next to you guys for a while so I thought I'd see what you guys were up to.
Me: (Speechless, I look over and there he is in the car next to us looking at me with a huge smile).

I never felt so lame in my life! My heart sank to my stomach and I think I punctured Jody's arm with my death grip–I was so embarrassed! To this day Eric claims he never noticed my impromptu make out session with my phone but I think he was just trying to help me salvage my dignity. Five years later I seriously laugh at that story and smile from ear to ear because I married that boy! And today we are so blessed to have each other and our two awesome kids. I absolutely love the life we've created and the family we've built and can't wait to celebrate "us" every single year. I love you Eric!
