Since Valentine's Day is coming up, I want to take a minute to talk about romance. I might get a little sappy on you! I want to tell you all the story of how Troy and I met. I was 17 and had just started college a few weeks before. Troy was in a fraternity (now before you say anything about frat guys-I've heard it all!!). I went with my friend to his fraternity for a party and to meet new friends.
I met Troy because my friend was out in the cold on the phone and he was kind to bring her his coat. Meanwhile, him and I got to talking while we were waiting for her to come back inside. I saw that he had a picture of a John Deere tractor in his room and I felt close to home with it because my Dad has a John Deere. We talked about my parent's farm, where we are from, etc. We danced to a couple of songs (99 Problems I remember distinctly lol) and then I went home that night. Right before I left, Troy ran downstairs and gave me a hug and a kiss. I didn't know what to think of it because I was kind of seeing someone else at the time.
In June 2008, we got engaged and married on July 11th, 2009. Troy is the best husband that I could ever imagine. He is so kind, thoughtful, funny, supportive and a million other things. He is an amazing partner in life and an incredible father to our daughter.
Through the 8 1/2 years that we have been together, Troy and I have made an effort to keep up our romance. It was easy before we had Adalyn as we had all the time in the world to focus on each other. Once she was born, it became a little more difficult but is still a priority for us so we make it work.
The Choice which comes out on February 5th. We love seeing romantic Nicholas Sparks movies together and this one looks really good! It is about making difficult choices of the heart to find your destiny and perfect match. The main characters are brought together due to an encounter with their dogs- I love this because Troy and I are dog lovers. It will make the perfect date night to see this movie together and to make some dinner to enjoy the two of us!
