The Man of My Dreams


In an effort to improve my writing skills and add more pizazz to the blog I decided to try out a few blog carnivals this year. This first one is from Kristen at We Are That Family
I wanted to spend some time sharing about my wonderful husband. The picture is one of us on our "honeymoon" of sorts to Maine. Since Aaron I met in Alaska and married just one year later his family didn't get a chance to meet me before we got married. I know crazy! But probably not totally out of the ordinary especially in AK. I have shared before how Aaron and I met at church and started hanging out shortly there after within the College and Career class at church. Now apparently my husband was going to be quite the catch back home. He was a popular guy and had dated plenty of girls and broke a few hearts as well. I myself had never dated anyone. Sure I had a few secret crushes and all but I was never really the type to throw myself at a guy. I was pretty shy and definitely didn't flirt. I had a best friend who was pretty good at that! Sarah certainly helped me come out of my shell and I have to say had a HUGE part in Aaron and I actually getting together. So short story we dated for a year and then got married almost one year to the day later.
We were young and full of inexperience. Aaron was in the AF and I was in college. Guess what? I didn't finish college and so now I am back in college. We learned a lot of things about ourselves and each other and how to make a marriage work or not work. Now its 10 years later and it seems like we have come so far but I know that God has so many more places to take us.
And now here is a picture of us on our 10 year anniversary in Hawaii
