Story time! So I love telling people how Nathan and I met, it’s not cliche or anything like you’d expect. We actually met because we started dating each other’s best friends for a brief time. 🤭 Insane right?
So a few years down the road, we end up running into each other at a mutual friends house. We talked a lot, listened to music and ended up sticking by each other’s side most of the night. I invited him to a couple of get together at my house and man did I play coy! I was interested for sure, but he was getting ready to join the army and I was a bit a free spirit at the time so I kind of just blew him off because stupid me didn’t know what I was missing out on. 🤯
A couple months later and he’s getting ready to leave for basic training, literally he was leaving the next day when I contacted him. So I rushed to say goodbye at hotel he was staying at! We talked until 3 in the morning, went up to the top floor of the hotel that overlooked Nashville, and played a challenging game of chess. Man it was dreamy. We left things with when he comes back and we’re still single let’s get together type deal. Although as soon as he left I knew I had made a mistake, I waited eagerly for his Christmas break thinking he was coming back so I could tell him how I felt.
So the holidays roll around and I messaged him and he ended up staying on post in South Carolina instead of coming home for the holidays. So spontaneous me drives all the way from Tennessee to South Carolina to see this man and tell him how I felt. He asked me to be his girlfriend on the day of his graduation from basic training. My heart seriously melted seeing him in his ASU’s for the first time (like oh my goooooood heart eyes for sure) •
When I say we were in love, we were in LOVE! Thankfully everything has worked out for us. We’ve been together for almost 3 years now with our 4 sweet puppies, and we have faced some really hard times and some absolutely amazing times. I wouldn’t change anything about our relationship or the journey we’ve been on. I’m so glad I get to spend everyday with my best friend and that I can continue to grow as a person with Nathan by my side. He is truly the love of my life. 🌎
