I was going to school at the local community college. Up to no good in my free time. Busy as ever... ready to celebrate the holidays with a certain fella that was visiting Kansas for the first time since leaving six month earlier for basic training.
We had just finished celebrating Christmas with a group of friends. A smaller group of us ended up having an after party of sorts at Rob's grandparents house. We were laying on the couch when he asked me to be his.
When I look back to our innocence that night. The expectations for our future were still relatively unknown. We've been through it all it seems. In just five years. But I would never have guessed THIS is where we would be.
In Georgia. 5 and a half years into a military career. Married for just a few months shy of 4 years. Raising a dog. Expecting a baby. Making all of our decisions together. Trusting in each other with every life obstacle.
Back then five years seems so far away... but reality? It got here quick... and it's been five years I would not trade for the world.
