I met my husband at a Halloween party, I was a 20’s flapper and he was a Russian communist. We spoke for 5 seconds that night the same time he was slow dancing with another girl. The weekend after that we saw each other again and ended up hanging out with each other for the rest of the night. I found out he was in the military and my heart sank a little. I grew up in a military family and know the feeling all too well when someone you love has to leave for a while. I knew we had met for a reason and I was going to leave it in God’s hands! We are both Christian, so it was really exciting meeting a cute guy who loved Jesus as much as I did! Both times were at Christian events.
One Sunday, he pulled me aside and told me he cared about me as more than a friend or sister. We courted for a couple months and finally became official in Spring of 2010.
Our first kiss was like a movie. The End. Just kidding.
That summer he was leaving for his first deployment. I was having a really rough time without him, we were only dating for 2 1/2 months before he had to leave and there were a bunch of training he needed to do in between. I really didn’t think we’d make it.
When he returned from deployment a week later he proposed!
I was the happiest girl in the world at that moment! April 10, 2011! That same month I married my best friend. I never once got cold feet. I loved him when I first saw him and I knew I was going to love him for the rest of my life. Our civil wedding was so beautiful, just me and his family. I love my in-laws and my husband’s grandparent’s. Something about the midwest :)
We got married in our church that summer as well and had a little wedding with our closest friends and family. It was a beautiful experience especially being able to recite our vows. I was already married but didn’t feel like anything was taken away because we were married prior.
Kyle is everything to me. I love him the most. Well, we’ll see in a couple months when I’m holding our son :) Everything I do is for my husband. Even though we’ve had our down days, and probably will have even more I can’t ever see myself loving anyone else as much as I have and will ever love Kyle. Speaking of Christianity, my husband may not be perfect but he is the most zealous person I have ever met in my life for the Word. Yes, he is the one on the streets who will pass you a picture of Jesus. If he had one wish, I know it would be for everyone to be saved!
We found out we were going to be parents in December of 2011, a week before he was leaving for yet another deployment.
He makes me feel like a princess and makes sure I always feel beautiful. I can’t even imagine how he will be with our baby. It just makes my heart swoon! I love how much he supports me in school and just how he supports everything I do. He makes me feel like I can do anything, and I know I can because I have him.
