6 years..

Today marks the day of Andy & I got from here:

to here:

It all started when I needed a date to my junior year homecoming. Ok, now this is where it gets complicated-but hang with me, a friend of mine was dating this guy, Tony. A girl on my soccer team, Emily, was saying how Tony needed a friend so he wasn't bored (he was in college-didn't go to our school). Anyways she suggested her cousin Andy (who was cousins with Emily and Tony but on 2 different sides). My bff Lauren agreed (she knew both boys) and Lauren and Emily both thought I would be a perfect match-we are both goofy, like to have a good time etc.
Emily called up Andy after practice and told him she needed him to go to the football game with her this Friday to meet a girl,me.
The whole week I was bugging Lauren asking her if he was cute and if she really thought we would match. She kept assuring me that I would like him. OK, flash forward to Friday night. I was a cheerleader so I couldn't talk to him until half time. The whole game I would avoid eye contact but I knew he was looking at me the entire time! We talked and later exchanged numbers.
The next night was fate. I went to a haunted house with a group of friends that was about 30 minutes away. When we were about to head home I got a call from Lauren saying she was on her way out there but needed to meet us to give us her key because he mom called her saying she was locked out. We met up with Lauren and she told me Andy was with her group and insisted I go back out with her. Well I did and Andy and I really had a chance to talk.
And that was it. We ended up going to the dance together and have been inseparable since. On this day 6 years ago he asked me to be his girlfriend and now here I am as his wife.

Thank you Andy for a wonderful 6 years fulled with nothing but happiness. Here's to many, many more!

This is a really sweet story! I LOVE that you included your high school dance pictures. I totally see a blog post for me coming up using that idea, even though my husband and I didn't meet until college! I'm looking forward to reading more.
