Sophomore and junior dating
We spent alot of time picking on one another at the playground and passing notes in the middle of class..when middle school came the next year, we kind of lost touch. As sad as it was, it was obvious we had left our 5th grade friendship behind. The next day, we ran into each other in the hall while walking to class. High school was coming and I feared the same friendship fizzle was about to occur. We didn't sit beside each other the first day, or the second, or the third.
New school and a cool middle school image to uphold. It wasn't until 8th grade, while grading papers for my algebra teacher during lunch (teachers pet, I know), I looked out the window and saw D walking with his buddies back from lunch. Cut to 9th grade and the start of our Economics, Legal, and Political course with Mrs. I walked in that Monday morning to find D sitting in the corner of the room. We actually didn't start sitting together out of our own free will. I am positive this time in our lives contributed to both of our lack of knowledge regarding all things legal and political..that's just fine with me.
My mom used to car pool for field trips and I knew every trip that D would be in my car riding with me. We hadn't spoken or really even acknowledged one another's existence for the last 2 years and now we're waving? There was side taking and rumors started and he felt like he needed a change. We started talking again that year, but then summer came and it was back to square one.At the end of the hunt D was down on one knee with the most beautiful diamond ring in his hand.Alot of wonderful things were said, I'm sure, but I don't remember anything but saying yes!He got a scholarship to participate in AFROTC at the university we attended and he flourished in it. After living by the sea for almost 3 years (and surviving our first deployment in 2010) we got orders in the spring of 2011 to move 4,000 miles across the Atlantic to start a life of adventure in Germany! We've traveled so many places (check out my Wanderlust page for trip recaps and photos) and experienced so many things during our brief lives together thus far, a journey we are so thankful for.
He loved it, I loved it..we married into the Air Force in May of 2008 upon graduating college. I go where he goes and we go where the Air Force sends us. After living in Germany for 3 incredible years, we now find ourselves settling down to a new life by the sea in the Sunshine State! We feel so blessed to have each found our best friend and soul mate all wrapped up in the same perfect person, to have lived out our dreams of world travel and adventure, and to have such wonderful friends and family to share it all with. Although our lives together haven't always been sunshine and rainbows--no matter the weather, we get through it together.
