|Jesse & I - April 2011|
And six days later.....Dear God, Okay I'm in love! :) Jesse is amazing!
And two weeks later.....I'm getting married! I'm engaged - I'm going to be Katie Lee Eisenberger!
Eight months later....I AM Katie Lee Eisenberger!
Spring 2005 was a whirl wind .....but just thinking about it gives me butterflies all over again. I remember telling my mom I was getting married - she was completely in shock. Everyone pretty much thought we were crazy. Looking back there are days, weeks and sometimes months that I would agree. We got married, built a house, had a baby, enjoyed that baby, had another baby, enjoyed both babies and then we started to really settle into life. And what we found is that life is not easy. There are some diary entries I wouldn't wish on anyone in a relationship. Yet, I can read them and think - I made it through...correction....WE made it through.

So that's my story, the one I remember during every Maple Syrup Festival since then. The one that gets me through those trying times. The one I look forward to sharing with our grandchildren someday. The one that when I share with people they look at me like...wow that is crazy?!....yeah and I Thank God every day!
I'd love to hear your story....how did you meet, what still gives you butterflies about your special someone, how do you compliment each other, what makes you crazy for each other? Share in the comments!
