10 years ago tonight........... leif asked me to be his girlfriend.

feb. 4 was 'our anniversary'. i remember the whole night like it was yesterday. but i won't bore you with those details :)

i kinda miss those crazy dating days.

i like to reminisce back to life when my biggest concern was if mr. leif would come to my locker in between classes, or if mr. leif would come talk to me at lunch, or if mr. leif would watch my hurdle race, or if mr. leif would call me...................and then when he did, i would get the most amazing rush in my heart :)

my mom liked to say we were just friends, even up until our wedding day, but i know in my heart i loved him long before we were married. it was young love.

its so cool to look back and see how much our relationship has changed, grown, and become so intertwined with the Lord.

today mr. leif remembered how special february 4 was to us and still is :)
he remembered all by himself.

i know he remembered because this was waiting for me in the office today at school

special thanks to one of the first graders at my school, josselin, for taking this picture of me :)
with this note:
"I think it's been 10 years, right?
Love, Casey"
man......i could go back to being fun, crazy, responsibility-less, 15 in a flash.


  1. Isn't it fun to think things change...but isn't that part of the journey :) Nick and I just had our day on January 20th and it was fun to reminisce (sp??) a bit. And we would agree, it was definitely love even at that young age. Yippe to 10 years...and what God has in store for you and Case's next 10-now that's exciting to think about!

  2. LOVE it!! and I love you two. What a great surprise. It's wonderful that you can still remember all the fun and excitement of first dating and see how much you have evolved as a couple through the years.

    Cheers to many, many more fabulous mile stones for my dear friends the Lief's <3

  3. You guys are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cute! Happy '10 year' girl!
