It is so hard to believe that my Husband and I have been Married for 7 years!! We got Married back on June 19, 2007 in Florida! We are Middle School Sweethearts and nobody thought that we were really in love back then, but we were. Everyone kept saying, “Oh, it’s just puppy love”. They were wrong, very wrong! I am 28 years old now and am still deeply in love with him. It was and still is real, true love. 😉
We started dating in 6th grade, when we were only 11 years old at the time. We met in Middle School, a school located in Houston Texas. We went to dances together, the movies together and spent countless amount of hours on the phone talking to each other. Back in the day, there was no such thing as text messaging, just phone calls. Dating in Middle School was not easy, because neither of our Parents wanted us to be together. We had friends that didn’t want us to be together either, which made it very difficult. So, we dated off and on from 6th grade through the middle of 8th grade. It seemed like everyone wanted us to not be together. Because everyone was against us being a couple, we tried running away together. We were only 12 years old, when we tried running away. We ended up getting caught and that just made things worse. He ended up moving away in the middle of 8th grade, so we broke up and completely stopped talking. 🙁
In 2005, we found each other on MySpace. I was 21 years old when we began talking again. We started talking on MySpace for quite some time, then started talking on the phone again. We talked on the phone and on MySpace for 2 years straight. We both had our own lives going on during that time. I was living in Washington State and he was living in Florida. In 2007, he asked me to come visit him in Florida. I replied to his question, “Yeah, sure.” I probably sounded really nervous, but that was because I was! I didn’t know that he would ask me to come visit him, but I was really happy that he did.
So, I went to go visit him in Florida in April of 2007, then 2 months later we got Engaged and Married! Sounds crazy, right? Well, we are crazy! Crazy in love!!! 😉 7 Years after being apart, we still had that spark and love for each other! He makes me want to be a better person, a better Wife, a better everything. We still have people in our lives that are against us being together, but that doesn’t phase us anymore. We are now living in Corpus Christi, Texas and loving every minute we spend together. We have gone through a lot throughout our 7 years of Marriage, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. Everything we have gone through has made us stronger as a couple. He is my soul mate and I am very thankful to have him in my life. 🙂
