My Love Story

So today I'm linking up with Erin @ Homemade Happenings.
She's hosting a love story linkup.
Also her blog is amazing and she's becoming a great friend of mine so go check her blog out. 


And now my love story. 
I would say my love story could last about 4 different blog post but since I know we all don't want to hear the long version I'll try and make it short and sweet. 

I was 12 when my friends asked me to attend church camp with them. I'd never been to a camp before and they all made it sound like so much fun and after talking my parents into I was totally all for it! 
I remember arriving and being a little scared to meet new people but so excited all at the same time. 
That's the day I met Chris (the hubs).
My friend, which happens to be Chris cousin introduced the two of us. We were both totally shy and didn't really talk. 
We were "boyfriend and girlfriend" until the end of camp with maybe saying two words to each other the whole time. We left and didn't see each other for a long time. 

The next summer we got the internet at our house and MSN was the coolest thing to have. And after not hearing from Chris since the summer before we started talking to each other once in a while on MSN. 
That which lead to lots of talking and then the first date happen.
We started going to the movies together (only thing to do around here at the age of 13) and then we became boyfriend and girlfriend again. Whatever that meant at the age of 13. 
We continued dating throughout the years. We went to our first homecoming together, watched each other in sports, went to prom together. Everything was perfect. We were high school sweethearts and I was on cloud nine. 

College happened. Chris went 4 hours away from home and I decided to stay here and go to a community college, which was very hard on our relationship. We had a big breakup but its totally what we both needed to grow as individuals and to realize just how much we meant to one another. To figure out what we wanted in life and if we wanted it to involve each other. That breakup was really hard on me but its probably the most important thing I've gone through (so far) in life. 
I learned a lot about myself and what I really wanted in life. 

After about a year break up we got back together and did the 4 hour long distance relationship, which I think helped our love grow stronger. 
Chris graduated from college and moved home to be with me. We moved in together and got engaged. Things were amazing but I really didn't realize just how much I could ever love someone so much until he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. I knew I couldn't live without him (cheesy I know) and I wanted to be a family and grow with him. He's truly the most amazing man I could of ever fallen in love with and knowing I would be spending my life with him made my life worth living (cheesy again). 
I'm so excited to say after being together 13 years and married almost two I'm the happiest I could ever be. 
And now having a baby is just the icing on top for our little family. 
Who knew at 13 I would have found the man of my dreams and married him. :) 
So happy I did. 

And now for so OLD pictures of us!
