A Decade Ago...

Friday, January 25, 2019

A decade ago... a curly headed, blonde eyed cutie was asking me out in a movie theater after we just watched Hotel For Dogs. I was so nervous but knew the obvious answer was YES. As we were leaving we ran right into my parents and younger sister. I was already embarrassed but not nearly as embarrassed when I saw my blue glitter chapstick all over Nick's lips. I could have died right there.  

Fast forward a few months and he's hanging out at my house almost every night and eventually staying over on the weekends. A lot of people didn't agree with how fast things moved with us.  I remember telling friends & even my Mother that he would be the boy I marry. I was 15 ya'll. 

I'm not sure where 10 years has gone but I do know that we are two totally different people than we were so many years ago. We've truly changed and shaped into people that I never pictured. Nick and I basically flipped - flopped when it came to social events. I am 10000% an Introvert. Him on the other hand.. he's a social frickin butterfly. I can only people for so long.. sorry ya'll. 

I will say though.. after many years of trying to make it "perfect". I think this year will finally be that year we just continue to grow and become strong in our marriage. Can we say.. #powercouple?? We have grown up, made mistakes & said sorry many times. Life definitely isn't always perfect. I really focused on myself and making myself come to terms with my faults. I am actively working on becoming a better wife. Nick has also made some changes that are really showing. It's nice to be able to come together and have a logical conversation without blowing it up or worse.. hurting someone's feelings. 

We are trying. Plain and simple. Why you may ask? I love that man. With everything inside of me. No matter what has happened he's always been my number one. He's always the one I want to run to. (Even when he doesn't want to hear it.. lol) He's just always been there. I'm a very interesting person, as you'll come to find out, and he handles all of my episodes pretty well. I can't imagine living in a life where Nick isn't my soulmate. 

Enjoy a throwback down memory lane.. I had to break out a flash drive for some of these pictures. You can definitely tell how long we've been together just by looking at the picture quality! 

Our first official photo together. 

My 16th Birthday that we spent at Myrtle Beach, SC. 

Graduation. May 2011. 

The best day of my life. I knew it all along. 

Very forced picture that Nick and I took on our Honeymoon in Gatlinburg.

Our first time ice skating together. This was from the beginning of last year. 

This was probably one of my most favorite trips. I would definitely say top 5. I plan to actually do a travel post about New Orleans. The history and culture there was so amazing. I can't wait to go back and explore even more.
