I'm linking up with The Crew Blog to share our love story this Valentine's Day!
|Our first photo of just the two of us.|
I've blogged this before, but this is a little different version.
We met at OBU. Neither one of us wanted to be there originally. I wanted to go to Belmont University and Tyler wanted to go to OU. But plans changed. We knew each other, but one night, a big group of us went out and sparks flew. I was "pursuing" Tyler more that night...flirting and basically being a giddy girl. But he resisted. He told me that I needed to calm down if this was going to go anywhere! ha! Of course, he is the restrained one! He continued to get to know me over the next few weeks, spending lots of intentional time with me. We would go for late night walks around the Gazebo at the river on campus, and just really got to know each other's hearts. He pretty much told me that he wasn't interested in dating anyone that wasn't a forever possibility.
And then on December 1, 2007, he officially asked me to be his girlfriend. I knew I would marry him. :)
We spent lots of time making memories together at OBU, had a tough semester when he graduated a semester before me and we were long distance, had some amazing summers together, and then on April 21, 2009, he asked me to be his wife.
March 13, 2010 we got married! So far, we have survived grad school, building a home, starting a business, and more! I just love our forever love story. It hasn't ended...it plays out each and every day.
This is a video I made for our wedding summing it all up. *Note: I messed up this video. We got together in 2007, not 2008. Ooops.*
