Summer of 95. Youth interns.
Summer of 95. Youth interns.
December 31, 1999 The night we started dating.

Today is T and I's 7th wedding anniversary. I cannot believe how fast it has gone. I had a friend who posted on her blog how she met her husband, so I thought that would be fun. T and I were both summoned :) to work as youth interns in the summer of 95. I was in Dallas when T arrived so my Dad and one of my brothers went over to meet him and help him move in. I don't remember the first time that I met him, but I do remember the first couple of weeks that we worked together were VERY rocky! I did not like him one bit, in fact I tried to get him fired. I went to Bill (the youth minister we were working for) and told him that one of us had to go, and it was not going to be me. I don't really recall why I did not like T, but I'm sure it had something to do with the fact that he could put me in my place. :) In a loving way of course. Bill specifically told me that we would get married one of these days. I laughed at him and told him that would be a cold day in you know where. :) Well, I figured since I was stuck with him for the summer I might as well make the best of it. :) Actually we had a GREAT summer. We ended up becoming really good friends. We kept in touch on and off over the next 5 years. That's when T was living in Tennessee and needed a last minute replacement for someone to come out and help lead a girls group at his disciple now. So he called me and I was thrilled to take a couple days off from teaching. I headed out there and had a great time. I hardly saw T at all that weekend, but when I stepped on the plane to head home, that's when I felt the Lord speaking to me and telling me that was who I was going to marry. Of course I had to argue with Him too, because He couldn't possibly know what he was asking. :) ha!! Well, it's funny how God changes your heart. The Disciple Now was in October, we started dating the very end of December, and were engaged on Feburary 29th. (Yes he only has to remember that date every 4 years :) ) We were married in the church where we worked together and yep you guessed it Good old Bill did the honors. I have fallen more and more in love with T the longer we are together. Don't get me wrong we are not perfect and have our moments, but we are good together. God has given us two beautiful children, and a wonderful place to serve Him. I wouldn't change it for the world!!! Happy Anniversary Honey!! I love and respect you more and more every day. Thank you for loving Jesus and leading us to do the same. I am so blessed!! Ok I found some pictures of T and I back in the day when we use to work together. :)

What a neat story! I didn't know how you met your husband - but it's so neat that the youth minister knew even then.
Happy Anniversary!!!

Happy Anniversary! It's so hard to believe we've all been married that long or more. Seems like yesterday we were silly little college girls with code words for everything! Drama! :)

Love the pics - your wedding dress was pretty and the pictures from 1995 are the Aimee I remember.
Although I think you look just the same!

Where did the time go???

Ok...I love hearing the story all over again...but I have to put in my two cents...I remember T calling you in the dorm room at good old Francis Crawford and you were not very happy about it because he you didn't like him!!! TEE HEE It's always neat how God shows us his humor.

I love seeing all the pics and happy anniversary!
