On songs and three years

Today was Dani's due date! I can't believe she's already 3 weeks old. But today is another special day at our house. Three years ago today, Micah and I went on our first date. He took Jason, my godson Ryan, and I to see Spiderman 3. I can't believe how the last three years have flown.

Micah has always reminded me of the Brad Paisley song, He Didn't Have to Be (don't feel bad if you don't know it, I don't listen to country either. I just happen to love Brad Paisley.) It's a song about a step-dad who is such a great dad to his stepson that when the son grows up he hopes that he's half the dad that his step-dad didn't have to be. There is a line in the song that says, "He took my mom out to a movie and for once I got to go." Micah took me out to a movie and it was just assumed that Jay would go along. Talk about impressive!

That date, May 18th, completely changed my life. I had known Micah for a few years, but we had never dated. Even though a friend tried to set us up on a blind date years earlier, we just weren't in the right place to be in a relationship. I'm so glad I 'met' him again at Wal-mart after all that time!

When I was on my way to pick Jay up from school, I heard a song and texted Micah a line. "My dog Sam eats purple flowers." He responded and if you're into crazy hippie-dippy music like I am you know what he said. "Ain't got much but what we've got's ours."How true it is, we may not have it all, but we have all that matters.

And now, how about a blast from the past? I can't believe how much we've changed in the last 3 years, like I was several pounds lighter!
