The summer of 1999 seems so close and yet so far away!
But June 22, 1999 saw two people who have known each other for many years, reconnect and start that going out together.
And we didn't know it then, but what we actually did, was start our life together.
Look at those fresh young faces.
All that energy and up for a good time A couple of adventures
You know how some people say that they found their soul mate.
What really is a soul mate? Something lovey dovey that people say when they are in love...
It means someone who will dress up because that is what you like to do
(He might not look happy - but he was smiling on the inside)
And dress in costumes for murder mysteries, not just once but many times
And of course when the kids came along, that didn't stop us from dressing up!
We enjoy together
And we have grown together
(or at least give the illusion of being grown up)
We started as 2 people who found each other, started a life together
And then worked on a couple of other lives
We became a family together
And learned how to be parents
We learned how to face challenges
And found that we really and truly are right where we should be, with who we should be.
Because we really do work well together.
The optimist and the realist (and we switch back and forth between these)
Because in 14 years we have had a lot of fun,
We do silly stuff
And know that it is silly and fun, and we don't care
If I get an idea in my head, I know that if I run with it, Kyle will come with me
We can be who we are, who we are meant to be, and who we want to be.
And calling each other crazy is perfectly acceptable and encouraged
So 14 years has brought us a number of changes
Because these kids just out having some fun together
Turned into a life together
Our 14 year anniversary remains with our lives full of love and laughter
