Oh How Far We've Come..
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw this picture a couple weeks.. On the left is my wedding ring, and on the right is my engagement ring. In a way, it's a perfect metaphor for how far we've come together. As we enter our 4th year together, it's crazy to think of where we were. For those of you who don't know, we are high school sweethearts. And the first time we hung out, was a school pep rally, and after when my mom asked me if I liked him, I told her "no", and we weren't ever going to be more than friends. Umm obviously, I was very wrong :p
I think it's important to not live in the past, but I also think it's important to remember it. And our past together wasn't easy. We had a lot to make it through, including the Husband moving out and in with my Dad and me, right after we graduated high school. Not everybody thought it was a good idea, and his family believed we couldn't make it and he'd be back. But we did. We even got engaged a few months later. In February 2010, he went from having a job at Ace Hardware to entering his career path at a big insurance company. He started in the mail room, and then was promoted in the mail room. He was on a salary, with days off, and health benefits. At the age of 18. At the age of 19, we got married, on our two year anniversary. Which brings us here.. to 2012.
