It was a wonderful day for me, not so much for Jeremy. He worked really hard cleaning up the garage. While I read the piles of old letters that I wrote him starting in high school, then moving on to college, while he was on his mission, then after I said good bye as he moved to Utah to go to school fully expecting to get a letter saying he met his future bride.
I loved reading the letters and seeing how he has always been my best friend. There were letters telling him about relationships, problems at home, stressful days at work, questions of my future. I just couldn't help reading it and know that we were supposed to be together.
One of my favorite lines was when he was on his mission and getting close to coming home. I was asking about his plans and I said something like this "You'll come home, go to college, get married and have a million kids. You always have goals and you always achieve them!" When I read it I thought how funny that it was me he had about a million kids with. Another line was saying that the girl who finally gets her hands on him would be extremely lucky. Again, who knew it would be me. To this day I still love him and feel so blessed to be married to a great man.
Also in the box was a key chain that contained these two pictures. They were taken when we started dating in December of '98, the second time is how I refer to it, since we dated in high school too.
