6 Years of knowing

I laughed when I opened this photo in Photoshop today. I missed the focus on my ring, and I know that Wes would immediately point that out. Not that he's trying to be critical, but because he can't help it. It's like a simple observation of life: "It's cooler outside today, and you missed the focus in that shot." That is why I love him. Or rather, I love that I KNOW that about him—that I can predict it, or expect it. It's familiar. I love familiar.

Before I met Wes I had strict criteria for someone being constituted as "the one." Basically I had to "just know" they were the one, preferably soon after meeting them. Maybe it sounds young and silly, but I am not kidding when I say that all my life, since probably second grade, I knew that I would "just know." The day I met Wes he said 2 words to me ("Hey, Notetaker."), and I immediately thought/felt, "Where have you been, and let's get going with our lives together!" By the end of our first date I "just knew." And I am so glad that I still do.

I love the "Love at first Smint" story! It was fun to watch you two fall in love. Weren't you Romeo and Juliet for your first Halloween?

Everyone in the branch knew you guys were the perfect couple, too. Even as a missionary, I knew it was obvious! Always glad to see it hasn't faded!

I was so surprised when I saw your photo, our rings are so similar (though your nails aren't chewed like mine!) I have enjoyed visiting today, especially love your photos.
