High School Sweethearts
We met in elementary school but we weren't friends then;
After all, boys were gross and girls had cooties right?! :)
In high school, when I was a senior and Matt was a junior, we had 2 classes together: study hall & yearbook. I knew who Matt was because his sister had been my middle school choir teacher and his mom was a substitute teacher. We had mutual friends but we had never had an actual conversation... until one awkward day in study hall. Our high school planned a trip to Boston and a lot of Matt's friends went on the trip so I assumed he went too. The day everyone left, he walked into study hall and I, without thinking, looked up and said "Hey aren't you in Boston?". In what I would later learn is "typical" Matt attitude, he looked at me and said "No I'm standing right in front of you". Awkwarddd!! I felt so dumb that he pointed out my very obvious question and I thought for sure he thought I was an idiot! Little did I know that question was all it took to catapult us into the love story of our lives. He asked me out in yearbook class on April 3, 2007 and I thought he was joking so I laughed in his face! Fortunately for me he wasn't kidding.
After 6 years filled laughter, tears, silly jokes, some heartache and plenty of amazing memories, I am SO glad God has brought us to this point in our lives. I can't believe we're marrying our high school sweethearts :) How rare & beautiful is that?! Every day I am praising God for teaching me submission, patience and TRUST throughout our relationship. His timing is perfect and we're so blessed to officially be on our way to husband & wife!
