Today is a very special day! Today is the day, two years ago when Tyler survived meeting my parents, brother and crazy aunts. He survived playing the sentence game around the camp fire and truly saw what he was about to get himself into. And that night, while sitting under the stars trying to find Orion’s Belt, he asked me to be his girlfriend!
Two years ago today, changed my life forever. I knew from our very first date at UNO’s that this was special. My heart fluttered the entire night and when it was time to go I felt like a little school girl. It’s like they say, when you know you know.
As I dug up old pictures from two years ago to write this post, I couldn’t believe how different we look! But through all the changes and life events, one thing remains the same, we are so happy!
Here is my love story:
Tyler has been right by my side through everything and has taught me what it’s like to truly love someone. He was there through the life of a crazy basketball athlete…
to meeting my amazing/funny/crazy roommates. He didn’t run away when I asked them to take a picture of us with Lake Michigan in the background and they came out of the house with awkward props for us to wear. No Tyler does not normally wear a scarf or glasses with tape to hold them together! 🙂
PS, this was a month into dating….. I truly picked a winner if he stuck with it for this long!
To my graduation from Winona State. Our first year together was beyond special and perfect. He got me through so many ups and downs and loves me for all of my faults. God truly does work miracles. We didn’t know what would happen after graduation, Tyler was in La Crosse and I was on the job hunt. And then, God gave Tyler the opportunity to transfer to Madison, the city we met in and the city we grew to love. It was perfect!
Madison has truly been our first home together.
From our first trip to Tennessee together.
To the most memorable hike of my life in the Smokey Mountains.
Tyler is always by my side for the biggest moments in my life. Even my half marathon in the wonderful city of Nashville!
Our second year together has been even more memorable than the first! It’s crazy how you much you grow with someone and help get them through this thing called life. I honestly couldn’t imagine this amazing man not being in my life.
And then, to top our year two off, he surprises me with a baby kitty…..ANDDDD
….asked me to be his wife! Ahhhh I still can’t believe I get to marry my best friend!!
Digging up old pictures and remembering on old memories for this post was so unbelievably fun! It reminded me of where our love started, how it has grown, all that we have been through and how exciting it is to know my best friend is by my side for more years to come!
This is my love story! 🙂 On to year three!!!
