Today is a special day for Patrick and I. It is our DTR anniversary, otherwise known as the day that we "Defined Our Relationship." We officially became boyfriend/girlfriend and courted until we married in 1994 . This particular anniversary is of special importance to me, because beginning tomorrow and every day the Lord grants us thereafter, we will have been together for longer than we've been apart! That is just an astounding thought to me!! In some ways it seems like it happened just a couple months ago, and in other ways it has seemed like eons. I'm so thankful that the Lord brought us together and has sustained us through joys and trials. I've enjoyed "growing up" with you, hon, and you will always be my boyfriend!!
