Since I’m new to this whole blogging thing, I figured I would do random posts about some of the main aspects of my life! First off my husband, Jordan 🙂
Jordan and I started dating my senior year of high school. He had recently finished Basic Training in the Army and gotten out of a long term relationship. I also was moving on from my only other long term relationship so the timing was just right! We had always known of each other before but both of us being in other relationships had kept either one of us from pursuing anything.
At first it started out as a friendship, just kinda getting to know each other.. After two months of talking on the phone and “Skype-ing” (he was at AIT in Alabama, and I was home in Ohio) he came home for two weeks before going to his new duty station at Fort Hood, Texas. During those two weeks we had our first official Date, but we had already started falling for each other through the last two months. We instantly clicked and he asked me to be his girlfriend 🙂
Here is a picture of us on our first date! (we went to his brothers wrestling meet, then to see the movie “Dear John” after.. how corny? lol)
Throughout the next year he came home on the weekends as much as he could, and was even able to come home for my high school graduation!
That fall I went off to college and things got hard for a few months, I wasn’t sure if things were going to work out with us. I found out he was going to deploy to Afghanistan in the Summer of 2011 and I was really scared! I didn’t know if I could handle that! But we decided to stick it out and Im so glad we did 🙂
In April of 2011, during his pre-deployment leave, Jordan got down on one knee and proposed! Of course I said YES! I knew the next year would be one of the hardest of my life, but I knew that he was a great man and I wouldn’t want to ever loose him!
When Jordan left for Afghanistan on June 1, 2011 we weren’t sure when we wanted to have our wedding. I was still in college and we originally wanted to wait until I graduated, but about halfway through his deployment I knew I wanted to get married when he got home. I couldn’t imagine waiting a few years to start our life together! So in December 2011 I started wedding planning and set the date for July 3, 2012.
Jordan came home May 28, 2012 and that was the most exciting day of my life! Unless you have been through a deployment yourself, you can not imagine the variety of feelings you are experiencing while waiting for that bus to pull up! I will definitely never forget that feeling.
We had our wedding on July 3, 2012 about a month after Jordan got home. It was so much fun celebrating with all our family and friends! I wouldn’t change a single thing about our wedding day.
After our wedding, we packed up all our things and moved to our first apartment in Texas. Since then we have been living the newlywed life 🙂
So thats the story of me and my hubby! I will try to post some posts about different aspects of my life periodically. Until next time!
