We started dating on 25 July 2010. It was the best decision I have ever made. A few months of dating and my "cowboy" gave me a promise ring. He showed up to the hotel I was staying at with yellow roses (my favorite flower) and gave me my promise ring. It was so sweet. When Christmas came, it was time for me to come home. I got a beautiful necklace from him. Funny thing happened too... I broke the chain on that necklace within a week of having it. So, he got me a new chain. Then on 7 February 2011 we found out we were going to become mommy and daddy. At the time we were unsure, nervous, and scared. Little did we know that the angel growing inside me was going to be the biggest blessing of our lives...

Our first test was when I was deployed to DC (yes DC... strange deployment I know)... I had convinced myself that John was just a great friend- and I told him over and over that he and I would NEVER date... Let me say this: he is now my husband so how wrong I was!. This amazing man I call my husband came to visit me, just as friends. The first time he came was also the first time I met his mom's side of the family. During this visit his oldest sister informed me that she Facebook stalked me- creepy at first but I am ok with it now. While visiting his mom, we were hanging out in his room- it was then I realized that I was trying to fool myself. Not only did I kinda-sorta like this guy, I kinda-sorta had fallen in love with him. It was that moment- chatting with him while sitting on his bed that I realized I wanted him to be with me for the rest of my life... God had that plan for me already, it just took me a while to realize it.

I met my husband at a chapel service on base. I had "met" him a few other times, but we never said more than a few words to another. We were talked into going camping with some chapel friends- and I had to hitch a ride with him to the camp site (I didn't have a car yet). We ended up driving two hours in a car together- leaving base as strangers and arriving to the camp site as acquaintances. We ended up having to share a tent, because then tent I was supposed to borrow from our friend was "forgotten". We went hiking the next day, and we were left to hike together- everyone else ditched us. It was that hiking trip that I believe showed us that we were going to be great friends. My now husband was so easy to talk to (and still is). On that camping adventure we also went canoeing and this gave us more time to get to know one another. This was the start of the greatest friendship I have ever had.. God works in the most unique of ways...
