Haha, here you go. You hit the gold mine this time! I included a timeline of us in photos together….because I seriously adore this guy and it made me so happy to look at all these photos again. Hope you don’t mind. :) 

We started out two little silly pies.

And then we met as those awkward 11 and 12 year oldsimage

And then I started liking him back….and he asked my dad’s permission to take me to homecoming and give me my first kiss. I was 16 and he was 15. We were definitely awkward here. :)

And then he turned 16 and I turned 17 the next year  :)

And then the next year when I turned 18 and he turned 17 :)

Then we went overseas together and we decided we knew marriage was in the future.

image

image

And then I cut my hair all off and turned 19 and graduated with my AA and went away to college

And then I figured out how madly in love with Ryan I was and came home and he graduated college and my hair started getting long again

image

image

image

And then Ryan went away at school and was poor and lived in his car for a while and I used to drive to meet him at Starbucks an hour away and we fell in love all over again in that little Starbucks and it was wonderful.

And then he proposed when he was 19 and I was 20

image

and then we got married on the most beautiful day of my life… only a few months later…..because, in our hearts, we knew we were always meant to be together since we were 12 years old.

image

image

image

and now we are married and it was the greatest decision we ever made.

image

image

and there’s is the beginning of our adventure together. (and if you’re still following me after this ridiculous overload of Chelsie & Ryan photos, I will love you forever :)
