Eighteen years ago today Eric and I became a couple. We started dating, or whatever we called it back then. Within a month we knew that someday we would be married. Over the past eighteen years we have carved out a beautiful life with each other. Every single day I am thankful to be sharing my life with a kind, thoughtful, loving, compassionate and generous man. I have know Eric for so long and I couldn't be more grateful to live my life next to him.
