-First Picture Together-
Chris and I have been together 6 years, married one this upcoming Saturday. Time goes by soooo fast! Over the years we have gotten so close, I don’t think I could be myself completely in front of anyone else but him.. Well okay maybe my sister Breana 😉
But truthfully.. No one else knows me inside out like he does.. As I do to him.. We seriously completely each other.. I appreciate him so much. He’s been through so much with me.. In the first few months of us dating my father passed.. It was a huge hit for me.. I had never lost someone so close.. Especially a parent.. Chris was there for me, he is always there for me! Then I was in the hospital with Pancreatitis for 3 months.. Yes a long
time and at that time we still lived about an hour and a half away.. BUT that didn’t stop him from coming to visit me every Thursday. If that’s not love then what else is??
-Chris’ Hand with a pretzel shaped as a heart-
I got out of the hospital after my three month stay and he was nothing but an angel helping me throughout everything.. Then.. 2 months later I lost my mom.. I was lost, confused, scared, and just helpless. I had no job because I couldn’t work because I was still sick. I had some money in savings but no where near what I needed to survive. So October 5 is when she passed.. Breana and I tried so hard to pay the bills but honestly.. we would never make it alone. Thankfully we had lots of family and friends.. But Breana (My sister) was dating Steve (still together) and I was dating Chris.
November Chris said we have to do something.. Okay sure yeah.. Lets do something.. I had no clue what.. But he said I would not have to worry.. I -trust- him with all my heart.
November 15, 2006 we move in together and it was hard to pay the bills but Chris always made it work.. Thankfully I was MIRACULOUSLY better after my mom died.. The pancreatitis just went away (it did come back off and on for 2-3 years and led to my gallbladder being removed) and I started helping out and found the best job ever.
This is just the beginning of this fairy tale..Family means more than anything to me.. I -can’t- wait to start ours! 🙂
