Meet my ridiculously handsome hubby, Cody.
My husband and I don’t have this big fancy romantic love story, as much as I wish I could say it was love at first sight it just wasn’t haha.
It is really funny to me to look back and see how much we actually crossed paths in our lives. When I was a freshman in high school, Cody was a junior. We had similar friends and we can even talk about parties we were both at but never even spoke or recall one another being there. I was a cheerleader.. he was on the football team. We definitely knew who one another was but I guess we both had our eyes elsewhere and thank goodness because I believe that everything happens for a reason and there is a time and place.
Although I will say the first time we saw each other when we started our little fling I remember that moment like it were yesterday. We were both put into a room full of people and instantly gravitated towards each other . We had both recently got the new iPhone and thought it was the coolest thing ever.. Thank you Apple for bringing me to my amazing hubby ;P But really, we saw each other and honestly had never really spoke much, and when we did everything was just so easy with him. He had the ability to keep a smile on my face and the chemistry was apparent.
I am SO thankful that we met when we did. Cody was out of high school and working in town, and I was still finishing high school. We quickly became inseparable. Spending as much time as we could together. Staying up late where I swore I wasn’t going to be able to keep my eyes open in class the next day. Weekends boating, going to the river, I swear we were always doing something adventurous. One of my favorite things about him is his love for adventure.
After about a year of dating we spent a lot of time doing “long distance”… boy is that fun! But hey what can I say, he was worth it all. All the nights I would stay up to chat with him while he lived in New Zealand, and all the road trips back and forth from San Diego(where I moved for college).
Fast forward FIVE years and look at us. Never in a million years would I imagine my life like this. We have two gorgeous boys; living this wild and adventurous life together traveling.
This guy is my fairytale and I wouldn’t want it any other way. xo
