Today marks the sixth anniversary of me saying ‘yes’ to a crazy question this goofy kid named Tim asked me.
Funny story: When he asked me to be his girlfriend, I said “maybe.” I had only liked this kid for two and a half years at this point and said “maybe.” I think I’m crazy. I called him a few hours after considering the question to say one word and then hang up the phone. To be fair, I blame being SUPER sick for my temporary delirium. And yes, I remember this day to a tee.
Tim is more to me than I ever imagined a significant other would be. He has taught me so much about relationships, love, trust, understanding, communication, and support. Tim supports my crazy obsession with health and fitness (he’s the reason I started running!), our APhiO Brothers, and my AOII sisters. He encourages me to seize every possible opportunity and I know I can count on him for support in everything I do. We’ve pushed through the difficulties of our relationship being mostly long-distance over the past six years (4 out of 6 years…) and I think that only made us a stronger couple. We cherish the times we get to spend together and don’t take this time together for granted. When I picture my future, Tim is always present in it. He is my best friend, my better half, and he means everything to me.
We say this constantly to one another…we are so different, yet so alike. I appreciate everything about him and know that I am blessed to have him in my life.
And this is exactly how I feel about my fiance 🙂
So, for your viewing pleasure (or at least a laugh)…some pictures from the past six years…
Yes…his hair was this long. I don’t know what I was thinking.
But this beard thing…I don’t know what HE was thinking.
