(I just spent an hour writing this post and it’s completely gone. I hate you WordPress!!!)
Yesterday was our three year wedding anniversary. It really doesn’t seem that long since we got married. Mr. A is the love of my life and I am so lucky to have someone to take this journey with me. He has given me two beautiful babies and does everything he can so I can be a SAHM. I am going to share some pictures with you of our relationship but first I will give you a back story of how we met.
I was in a previous marriage that didn’t work out. **slaps hand to forehead, shakes head and thinks stupid stupid stupid***. TBH if I had to do it all over again I would because I learned a lot of life lessons from that time of my life.
Mr. A was engaged and before they would walk down the aisle the relationship ended.
So we both knew what we wanted and didn’t in a partner.
I was getting frustrated because I didn’t go to bar’s, I didn’t go out that much so I wasn’t meeting anyone really. I decided to join eHarmony.
Mr. A was having the same issue and his friend Chris (Thank you!!), also L’s godfather, pushed him to join eHarmony too. You see where this is going right?
Well after 1 month (we both paid for a yr membership!) we met each other. When I saw his picture my heart literally skipped a beat. I couldn’t send him a private message fast enough. I found out he lived an hour away but it happened to be in an area that I knew very well. He answered back and we talked for a little while before we decided to meet. Here’s a secret, he actually went away with Chris one weekend and I knew he didn’t have cell service so I called just to hear the sound of his voice since we had never met… haha stalker status!!
Our first date was July 13th 2008. We were just meeting for dinner…. the date ended up lasting 9.5 hours! We weren’t going to get together for a few days but the next day we made plans and were together ever since.
Sept 1st 2008 we moved in together
December 2008 we decided to try to have a baby
Jan 2009 we found out we were pregnant
May 2009 we got engaged
August 28th 2009 we got married
Sept 17th 2009 L was born
So yes, do the math, in the span of a year we were married and had a baby. Three years and two babies later we are still as happy as we were when we first met. I can’t imagine life without him. I am not one to get all gushy for the world to read (honestly people that shiz on fb is totally uncalled for but to each their own.) BUT Mr. A is perfect for me…not perfect because no one is, just perfect for me. We are happy and have two gorgeous, smart, funny, perfect (okay i said no one is but my babies are), kids. My heart physically aches when I think of how much I love my kids and Mr. A gave me them…. the greatest gift imaginable. Thank you for everything you do for our family every day honey. I will be forever grateful
And as promised here are pictures of me and Mr. A from when we started dating thru just after us having J 7 months ago.
The last two are from Sept ’11 and a week after J was born at my Uncle’s awesome wedding Jan ’12. I don’t think we have changed too much in the last three years… what do you think?
