6 years ago today.

April 3, 2007.
Ty asked me to be his girlfriend.
On Facebook of all places.
Because it WAS 2007 after all, and Facebook was all the rage.
We spent many hours sending messages back and forth to each other back then.
A few years ago, I took all of those messages and put them into a book.
All of those messages are the beginning of our relationship.
A bunch of "love notes" to each other.

So, since he asked me to be his girlfriend on April 3rd, 2007, I figured I'd dig the book out and share some excerpts from the night that started it all:

Ty: ...I'm not ok with just 'dating' anymore. I know I'm nothing special, but for some reason you make me feel special. You are incredible...oh wait, A-Mazing! So I'm wondering if you'd be ok with making it official and saying we're together. I'm sorry I brought this out in a message, but I know that I'd lose my voice or not be able to speak with you in person. Put simply, I wanna say we're together. I wanna say I have a girlfriend. And yeah I'm scared, but it's a good scared for once. I'd rather do this then not take the chance and wish for the rest of my life that I would have.

(Good thing he took that chance, right?!)

Lisa: YES! YES! YES!! I want to make it official too! Your whole message was so sweet! I just feel so amazing when we're together and I'm so happy that I can make you feel special! So yes, I'd ABSOLUTELY love to make is official and be your girlfriend!!! YAY!!

And so it began.

How did I ever get so lucky?

Thank you, Ty. For taking that leap of faith 6 years ago. I can't imagine my life without you.
I love you more than you'll ever really know.

xoxo, wife.
