It's been 11 years since Carrie Underwood met her husband, the now-retired NHL player, Mike Fisher.
On Monday, the country singer celebrated the occasion with a "rare" night out on the town in New York City. Underwood took to Instagram the next day to share a selfie of the two from the night with a sweet caption about Fisher.
"11 years ago yesterday, I met the love of my life...patient, kind, the best dad, handsome, of course!" Underwood gushes. "Someone who accepts me and all my flaws...the same s me in many ways...opposite in some. But he is my match. The iron to sharpen me," she continued, before giving details on the date night.
"Tonight we celebrated at @delposto. A rare night out with amazing food and even more amazing company and conversation. Here's to so many more years together. Love you, babe!"
Fisher later added a note in the comments section of Underwood's post writing, "Love you babe. You're the best!!"
The couple met for the first time at a backstage meet-and-greet after one of Underwood's concerts. They started dating long-distance for a few months and eventually got married back in July 2010.
"9 years feels like 9 minutes!!!!" Fisher wrote on Instagram on the anniversary. "Grateful to be on this journey with you @carrieunderwood !! Time sure does fly #datenight #happyanniversary."
Currently, you can catch Underwood out on the road for her"Cry Pretty Tour 360 Tour" alongside supporting acts, Runaway June and Maddie & Tae. The country star has even brought her family along for the ride!
