My Fairytale: How We Met

Be prepared to learn about our love story. Over the next few weeks, in between what ever other posts I don't have planned, I will be filling ya'll in on how CT and I met, the journey of our relationship, our engagement, our wedding, and our honeymoon!

CT and I met the first week of my freshman year at college. He was a football player and I was a new freshman volleyball player. Fall athletes were allowed to move into the dorms a week before all the other students. CT was told he wasn't going to be able to move into the dorms because they were all full, but a week before move in day he was told a room came available. He lived upstairs and I lived downstairs. Co-ed dorms = best invention ever! 

 (The boys playing dress up in my uniform. It's crazy how young we both look.)

Talking with him later, I found out that he had spotted me in the cafeteria and called "dibs" on me to the whole football table. Must have been my nice tanned legs in my volleyball spandex that got him ;) 

Anyways, I came to college with boyfriend of 2 years and after I met Christian the rest was history. It's funny to look back on what these guys did to try and get our attention. Example below --

(We had the note displayed on the fridge and the old boyfriends didn't like that, so that's where the 'gay' came from. And their PSS was untrue, they never knocked. They were to chicken and just stuck it under the door.)

Looking back, they make for a good laugh! 

Well after the notes, CT and I started hanging out and before long I was no longer with my x and we were a couple. 

A picture on our very first day hanging out. I was going home that weekend and wanted to show all my girlfriends how cute my new 'friend' was! 

Funny story -- after about two weeks of hanging out, we had our first sleep over and it was the most awkward thing ever. We were both fully clothed with shoes on, on top of the covers, trying to sleep next to each other in my twin bed. I wouldn't be surprised if we slept with the light on, that's how awkward it was. Haha. It brings a smile to my face to remember the old times and how smitten and cute we were.

Looking back, it's much easier to see how God has a plan for everything and it's really cool to see how things work out. It was definitely a God thing that a room had opened up a week before move in day and CT was able to move in upstairs. Why do we ever doubt Him? He knows exactly what He is doing. 

Not much in our relationship has changed in 5 years besides our maturing looks and the fact that we are now married. We have been inseparable and best friends since day 1 and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

I love that man with all my heart!
