5 Year Anniversary

This may look like I chose a random selection of pictures of my husband and I, but no, it's the only pictures of us!  He's not too fond of having his picture taken and would probably have a fit if he knew I was posting these.  He'll get over it.  
Anyways, I met my husband when we were 15.  Our best friends at the time were dating, and we hit it off and dated for about a year.  Because his parents were divorced, he eventually had to go back to live with his mom in Louisiana, and that's when we decided that a long distance relationship probably wasn't going to work.  I was sooo devastated.  I cried until I just couldn't cry any more.  My heart was broken and I really thought we would never get back together.  We attempted to get back in touch with each other over the years, but every time we did, one of us was dating someone else, so it seemed to be the end.
Fast forward 5 years.  I'm in college and I randomly get this e-mail from him saying he might be in town soon.  I was so excited.  He came by the store were I worked and we talked for a while.  Next thing I know we're dating again and living together.  It was as though we never spent any time apart.  I was always in love with him and just never stopped being in love.  We got married when we were 24, and here we are, 5 years later.  He's my best friend and I can't imagine life without him!
This is us at 15!
This was our 1 year anniversary. 
P.S.- Happy first day of fall!  We're spending our anniversary watching football and maybe grilling up a few steaks.


  1. Aw, so sweet. Congratulations on your 5 year anniversary x

  2. Happy 5th Anniversary to you guys hope you have a lovely day x

  3. Congrats! Isn't it neat how things work out? My boyfriend and I (who just celebrated our 5 year anniversary!)used to despise each other when we first met. Sometimes things just fall into place!

    Let me take a moment to say your husband has excellent taste in music. (Tool is the best!)

    Hope your day is awesome - ♥ Jana

  4. Congratulations! Funny how life can work out right? I met my boyfriend randomly while he was shooting a movie on campus for a work project. I spontaneously joined their movie, wrote down my e-mail on a paper crane (so I could see the movie when it was finished, and didn't have any other paper). Fast forward a year. We are together now :) It is amazing to me how these things can just happen
