Sometimes I Wonder...

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to go back on my first date with Justin and know he was going to be my husband.

I mean, I knew back then that there was a chance; we had discussed that we were not going to date just for fun... but how many girls get to marry their first date? Their first boyfriend? Their high school sweetheart? I guess I am super blessed.

What would I tell that silly, awkward sophomore girl? Probably just to remember every sweet moment.

That first magical date seemed like a fairy tale. A tenth grade girl getting asked out by the twelfth grade boy to his senior prom. Getting my first fancy dress, having my hair and makeup done. Him opening doors for me... Eating dinner with all our friends. Dancing the night away. Going back to his house for a party afterwards (Did I mention our first date was 12 hours long?). It all seems like a magical blur.

Yes, if I could go back, the only thing I would change would be to savor every moment, to try and capture each memory... because nearly eight years later we will have been married almost four years, and have our second little bundle of joy on the way. Life is amazing...
Mr. & Mrs. Justin Biddle
 No, I take that back, our GOD is amazing.

  1. Love this so much! My husband took me to prom, which was also my very first date :) We didn't officially start dating until five years later, but he was still my first boyfriend. Love that we have such a similar story!
