Alright guys, this isn't really a post about our wedding, but it is a post about our relationship. In this post, I'm going to tell you how Cody and I met.
Cody and I met just last year on a blind date...sort of. We were really just back ups so that our friends didn't feel so awkward going out by themselves and we were both dragged along. We hit it off right away and we literally talked all night long. The next day, we saw each other again and it kept going just like that.
Eventually, I brought him over to my mom's to go swimming. He claims that I really wanted him to meet my family, but I just really wanted to go swimming. Hah. Anyway, my family insisted that he really liked me and you could tell by the way he acted around me. Of course, I brushed it off.
Not even a week later, he had to go to annual training for the army. Before, our agreement had been that we wouldn't see each other much after that because he was going to be busy with the army and possibly getting deployed and I was going to be busy going to nursing school.
One night, we had been drinking a bit and hanging out with friends when he let it slip that he really liked me and wanted to be with me. Of course, the next day he didn't remember so a couple of nights later, I drank a little bit and insisted that we be together. He agreed and of course I remembered the next day (b/c obviously that was my plan, even though he refuses to believe it)
We didn't see each other while he was away at training.
While he was gone, I stayed at my Aunt and Uncle's alot because they always have something going on and their kids are my favorite cousins. Well, at their house, my phone only had service in one spot. So, I'd leave it there, charging, basically all day, unless we went into town (They live on a farm). Cody would rarely text, except at night. I'd hear my phone go off and literally run, dash, dodge dogs, and slide to that spot to answer the text which was usually a simple "Hey, I miss you and I wanna talk but I'm exhausted and need to sleep." So I'd just tell him I missed him too and we'd do almost the same thing every night until he came home.
When he got back it was the same as before he left and he told me he loved me. Absence really did make the heart grow fonder.
Just three months after meeting and dating, we moved in together.
Two months after that, on Christmas Day, he proposed and I said yes.
Our original plan was to get married in May 2013 but we decided that it wasn't what we wanted and we decided to elope in Gatlinburg, TN in May of this year. It was wonderful and perfect and exactly what we wanted.

Pretty wild ride huh? I agree but I wouldn't change a minute of it! I'm so glad that my life has brought me to this man!
