Yeah, I work out. Its no big deal.
This is Leah and I, circa 2002. Why she was attracted to this at all is a mystery to me. In this picture we had gone to Teen Mania to see the band Switchfoot and probably because I have a lot against Teen Mania, I felt compelled to take my shirt off and do whatever jackasses do to get laughs from their friends and the girl they have a crush on.
This is us about a year later in the Opry hotel in Nashville. She came to visit me there and I decided to tell her I loved her and make her my girlfriend. It was the first in the long line of good decisions I made that turned my life into what I wanted it to be. Which is to say, happy and whole.
Today marks the 6 year anniversary of that day. Six years, and I have never been bored. Six years, and I still love seeing her name on my caller ID. I'm pretty sure there would be no war if everyone in the world got to have what we have.
I sure do love her.
