best friend

... it was 9 years ago today that I married my best friend. i still feel like the luckiest girl alive.

a few weeks ago we took a trip to San Antonio. we went to see michael's brother austin graduate from law school. however, we took the opportunity to revisit the location where michael proposed. the parking garage of the rivercenter mall, downtown San Antonio. 
he had planned to propose out on a jetty in South Padre Island, but hurricane brett set us back a bit on that trip, forcing us to spend a night in San Antonio. we spent the day walking around the Alamo and the Rivercenter Mall. he carried the ring in a camera case inside his backpack. we walked back to the car and he just decided right then and there... that it was time to ask me. as we approached the car (a red ford explorer) he opened the back end and as he placed the backpack inside the car i noticed that his shirt was shaking... he was nervous. michael never gets nervous. so i knew it was coming... and sure enough... he got down on one knee right there in the parking garage. i was completely surprised. it was perfect.

so our recent trip to San Antonio was a fun way to walk our family through that day... the day that started it all. 

it's really amazing what has happened in the last 9 years. what a fantastic journey we're on!
