When I first met Jacob I thought he was cute. He tried so hard to get to know me and I just kind of didn't give him the time of day. I was at a point in my life where I just didn't trust anyone and I had a lot of baggage and was kind of a mess. I remember he would stand by the vending machines and wait for me every day before one of my classes and while I was getting a soda and candy out of the machine he'd talk to me.
We became friends and I realized that he really was a super great guy--and he was cute, too. How often does that happen? ;) One day he said, "Would you want to get together and do something fun, just as friends?" We did and it was a blast. That night he asked me out. I couldn't stop smiling. He put up with a lot while dating me and he stuck around. To this day I claim that he saved me from myself--and in a way, he did.
I can't believe it has already been 10 years since our wedding day and over 12 years since we started going out. I love him more than words can express and I look forward to spending many, many more years with him!
