The man behind the whole operation

Since Liv came into our lives, our lives have revolved around her. I am always bad about letting Liv take all my attention, and then when she is in bed, just being mentally and physically exhausted so there is nothing left of me for Vinay.

Every once in awhile a date comes up that makes me remember where it all started and how we came to be this wonderful family. 13 years ago today in my dorm room, while watching the movie "Speed", a skinny, 21 year old boy, kissed me and changed my life forever. I didn't initially want to start a relationship, because I didn't want to ruin our friendship. I thank God everyday that I took that chance and started dating my best friend.

Vinay you are the most honest, trustworthy, considerate man I have ever met. When I need someone to lead, you walk in front of me, when I need my space, you walk behind me, but most importantly you walk beside me and hold my hand through wherever life takes us. I love you.

Now just for laughs lets take a walk down memory lane.


My sorority formal, just a month after we started dating. (Love that earring Vinay)
Ahh so young, (this picture makes me miss my Sara Palin bangs)

Fun times at the shore house Summer of 98

I love it! I could write almost the identical post. Rich and I also met at 20/21 years old and were BEST FRIENDS and turned romantic with that one kiss and we took a chance on friendship turning into love and it did.

Those early pictures are so romantic and fun. We have such similar stories. Maybe that is why we got along so well and felt like we knew each other. I definitely want to get together again.

And yes, we are so out of energy after our night owl goes to bed too and our lives are wrapped up with Savannah too and it is ok right now and it is lucky we have such a strong bond of love and understanding.
