My husband and I have been together 10 years and married for 9. Since next fall is our 10 year wedding anniversary, and our vow renewal, I thought I would do something I don't normally do and tell you guys a little bit about my husband and I the last 10 years. So, let's go back to where it all began...

We met in 2004 through a mutual friend. We started off as friends and the more we hung out, the more we hit it off. He came into my life during a pretty rough patch in my life where I was a not dealing with a drug problem, but an alcohol problem and I also use to self harm. He's the one that showed up at my apartment at 3am to talk me out of killing myself and I guess, in a way, he never left. He helped me through a lot during that time and he saved my life.
He asked me to marry him on November 24th, 2005. Not only was it Thanksgiving, but it was my 21st birthday. He got down on one knee and proposed in front of my entire family. We were married almost exactly one year later, on November 15th, 2006.

Through the years we've had two kiddos and seen many ups and downs. There were a lot of lows in our first year as a married couple as we struggled to figure out how to communicate with one another and be a better spouse. Sometimes we still struggle with those things, but through the years we have learned how to get through it a lot better than we did at first. We even went through a period of time when we were deciding to get a divorce, but somehow we always end up stronger than ever.
He's seen me at my absolute worst. He's held me and comforted me through the many losses in my life, through family troubles, and has stood by me while I fight my inner demons. He's been my rock through the two years of being harassed, bullied, and stalked by a ruthless and psychotic woman, hell bent on breaking me down mentally. He is patient when he knows I'm having a rough day, and attentive and sympathetic when my depression, anxiety, and BDD rear their ugly heads, sometimes all at once.
My husband takes me to conventions and stands by while I fangirl over celebrities and he actually thinks it's funny that I clam up and can hardly talk to them after months of built up excitement at the thought of meeting them. It's gotten to the point where he thinks it's so cute, he will go out of his way to make sure I know one of my favorites will be at a convention close by.

In the beginning of our relationship, he helped me beat some of the worst addictions a person could have. Now, he feeds my healthier addictions, like my Disney addiction and all things Titanic. He's even letting me plan a trip to Disney as well as letting me add Disney elements to our vow renewal.
A few years ago, he let me drag him to a Bret Michaels concert. He was a bit of a grump about it, even grumpier that I purchased the VIP tickets, but once we got there, I think he had more fun than I did.

We've had a fun 19 years together, going to conventions, vacations, road trips, concerts, and monthly date nights, and I can't wait to see where the next 10 years takes us.
