5+ years

Five years ago, my life changed forever.

On February 17, 2001, in a dark movie theater, I was quietly introduced to the one person I'd spend the rest of my life with. Of course I didn't know that at the time. Not for a couple more hours.

After the movie (Chocolat), we went to Steak & Shake and I finally got a good look at her. We clicked instantly. It's obvious why now; we were soulmates. In the following days and weeks, everything about life seemed better because of my having met Allie.

I'll never forget the night we met. Before our eyes, a chain of events was set in motion that neither of us had any control over: becoming best friends, falling in love, moving in together, making a life for ourselves, getting married, and then... we'll see what happens next! I'll gladly walk down any unknown path, because I know that with Allie at my side, the world will always be beautiful.

OH, Jon!!! This is so sweet! *sniffle*sniffle* I have tears in my eyes. =)
I could not be happier that YOU are the one my baby will spend her life with. THANK YOU for making Allie so happy. We are lucky to have you & we welcome you to our family!
