|Taken the night of our first date at my friend's house|
Sure enough I did not hear from this guy all weekend (there was a reason, which when I look back should have been a sign of trouble to come), and Monday in class was awkward. That night after swim practice I came home to a message on my machine (remember those days? lol) from the guy asking me to call him. That week we spent hours everyday talking, and that weekend one night he even told me he loved me. Over a year later I watched him leave for Marine boot camp, and wrote him a letter every single day he was gone. A year after that we were married, another year and we had Jase, two more years and Caroline came along. This year marks seven years of being together and five wonderful years of marriage. Although at one point we did a snag in our relationship before we were married, we still pushed forward. Proof that true love can come in high school, and it doesn't matter your age, when you meet the one you are meant to be with...you know.
