I have been married To my husband for a little over two years, and we have been together for a little over for years. I gave touched on why we travel and a little bit of family, but I want to chronicle how we started.
I lived in the same apartment complex as my future husband and we end up at the same shitty bar over the course of the next few years. We are only friends and don’t even have each other’s phone numbers.
I move out of the apartment complex with my then fiance. I don’t see my now husband again for 3 years. We become Facebook friends but have no commincation.
My ex-fiance cleans out our house and leaves. This was the best thing to ever happen to me but at the time I couldn’t see that. My now husband reaches out to me on Facebook. We chat and he comes over. I make it pretty clear that I am not interested in hooking up. So instead he comes over and rubs my feet and we get to know each other. I am trying to put my life back together and am not really that invested in pursing any type of relationship. Yet he doesn’t give up. For my birthday he has this cake made:
I love hedgehogs. For a guy who isn’t sleeping with you to go out of his way and pay money to have a cake made into the shape of a ridiculous animal, you just might have a keeper.
But when we get home I realize I fell in love with him.
Above is my first purchase for our new house – Eloise the chicken.
My now husband grants one of my bigerst wishes. He teaches me how to ski (or lets me run him into a tree)
He proposes very romantically at ten pm on a Sunday night. We had argued and I was doubting his commitment/love for me, so he goes in our bedroom and pulls out a ring. Yes the moment wasn’t photographed and yes we were not surrounded by our friends and family, but it was genuine. It was an authentic unplanned proposal and I love him for doing it that way.
We celebrated with a trip to Emerald Isle and set a date for May of 2015.
My now husband gets me the best gift I could ever ask for. A Samoyed puppy.
May 2, 2015
My only regret – that we didn’t elope.
Not every prince has a crown. My prince has a big heart and the ability to make me feel loved and cherished.
