Today marks a special day in our relationship. Exactly 15 years ago, May 20th 1994, Ryan and I began this crazy journey. On that day, a 14 year old boy and girl started “going out.” What a romantic start we had….Ryan was such a flirt and would hold my hand at school, and my best friends Rachel and Bryn informed me that this was very promiscuous behavior since we were not boyfriend/girlfriend (such great friends, and an amazingly simple life we had). The next time Ryan tried holding my hand, I said “hey, I can’t let you do that since you aren’t my boyfriend” – to which he replied, “Ok, want to go out with me? “ Wow, he has such a way with words. :)
Who would have thought that sweet day would turn into this incredible journey. We’ve experienced many ups and downs, a few breakups, a move across country and back again, tons of laughter, lots of adventures, a few tears, one absolutely gorgeous wedding, and an amazing 3 and a half years of marriage thus far. And now, we are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our first child.
While Ryan and I secretly thought today might be an ironic ‘birth day’ for our Little Lady, I think we can safely say she has other plans for her arrival, and will let May 20th remain special to just Ryan and I.
Happy, kinda sorta, anniversary Ryan!
