Happy (sort of) anniversary to us

Yesterday was the 7 year anniversary of the day Jody and I met in person. It's amazing to think that it's been so long since I got on a plane in MI and flew to OK to meet a guy I'd only known virtually for a year and a half.

The whole trip nearly was canceled about a week beforehand, but I decided (thanks largely to some prodding by my sister Carrie) that if I didn't go for it and do it then, there was a very good chance that I never would. And then I'd be left forever wondering what might have been.

Am I glad I did it? Yes.

Has the journey to get to where we are today been an easy one? No.

Was it worth it? Yes.

Would I do it again? Definitely.

I could search the earth and never find another Jody. I love him for his wonderful - often wacky - sense of humor, his quick wit (which I've grown to match), his idealism, his convictions (and by that, I don't mean crimes), his capacity to love, and for the amazing father he is.

I'm so happy that our paths crossed on the Internet so many years ago. I can't imagine living my life with anyone else.

Jody rocks!
Thanks for the acknowledgement sis. ;) Although I'm pretty sure that you don't remember my prodding and have just succombed to my selfcentered insisting that I am responsible for the success of your relationship. Mwa ha ha! It worked!
In closing, Jody rocks! He's a fun guy and they broke the mold after they made him.

Congratulations, you two! Sometimes the things most beloved are the very things that took blood, sweat, and tears to get. Our love to you both.
