Is the best yet to come?

My husband Collin and I have been married for 7 years, 2 months and 18 days. Prior to our wedding we maintained a steady relationship for 5 years. People ask us if we were high school sweethearts and I guess the answer is yes. Does it count if you just thought the new kid in school was cute and you happened to need a date to prom? I suppose it does.

Not a day goes by that I don’t learn something new about this man in my life. Every day he suprises me with a new joke, a movie quote i’ve never heard or just some random fact about the universe. His memory operates on another level and never fails to amaze me! His imagination is truly outstanding! It is no wonder that after all of this time (12 years!) he still manages to sweep me off my feet.

This summer we attended Collin’s grandparents 65th wedding anniversary party.  Algene and Carol married young in 1952. They have four children and many grandchildren. Today, they have 7 great grandchildren in their lives and it’s all because two people fell in love.

The Ottesons, est: 1952

Of course, It makes me consider our own 65th annivesary in 2075. What more is there to learn about Collin? What suprises will he pull out of his head in another 10, 30, or 50 years!? What lies ahead for us? Only time will tell, and I cannot wait to find out!
