Love of My Life

15 years ago today I met the love of my life.

I can still picture and remember so many details about the first time Bob and I were introduced, as I shared about in this post that I wrote three years ago.

It has been a wonderful and crazy ride ever since.

Though we have our moments, we are still together, going strong and taking each day as it comes.

After struggling for so long to build our family and move into a bigger home, it feels awesome to be able say that we are “livin’ the dream!”

I feel so blessed and lucky to be married to my best friend and soul mate.

Our first dance song on our wedding day 11 years ago on September 23 was “Love of My Life” by Michael W. Smith and Jim Brickman. I will leave you with the lyrics, including a picture of us dancing to it at our reception, as well as a more recent photo of Bob and me with our children from our vacation earlier this summer on Hilton Head Island, SC.

Love of My Life

I am amazed when I look at you,

I see you smiling back at me,
It’s like all my dreams come true.
I am afraid if I lost you,
I’d fall through the cracks and lose my track,
In this crazy, lonely world.

Sometimes it’s so hard to believe,
When my nights can be so long,
And faith gave me the strength,
It keeps me going on.

You are the love of my life,
And I’m so glad you found me,
You are the love of my life,
Baby put your arms around me,
I guess this is how it feels,
When you finally find something real.
My angel in the night, you’re my love…
The love of my life.

Now here you are,
With midnight closing in.
You take my hand as our shadows dance,
With moonlight on your skin.
I look in your eyes,
I’m lost inside your kiss.
I think if I’d never met you,
about all the things I’d missed.
Sometimes it’s so hard to believe,
When a love can be so strong,
And faith gives me the strength,
it keeps me going on.

You are the love of my life,
And I’m so glad you found me,
You are the love of my life,
Baby put your arms around me,
I guess this is how it feels,
When you finally find something real.
My angel in the night, you’re my love…
The love of my life.

You are the love of my life,
And I’m so glad you found me,
You are the love of my life,
Baby put your arms around me,
I guess this is how it feels,
When you finally find something real.
My angel in the night, you are my love…
My angel in the night, you are my love…
The love of my… life.
