Oh How Pinteresting #14

2 years ago yesterday, July 18th, my boyfriend & I were at a bar. I was with my girlfriends celebrating someone's 21st. He was celebrating being back from overseas with some buddies. He asked me to dance. I said no. It was girl's night obviouslyHe asked me again later to dance. After checking with my friends I said yes. Now this is where you probably would expect me to say the rest is history right? Well, no it didn't work like that for us. After that night he texted me a few times durin the week and whenever I would respond he wouldn't respond back. I was single & having fun & getting irritated at him. So about a week and a half into this I texted him saying... Stop texting me unless you are going to ask me to hang out. So he did. Are you thinking that might be where the rest is history??? Well, nope. We went on a date... and it was awful. I texted my friends the whole time saying how bad it was. Nevertheless, he kissed me goodnight & we went on our way. I got home and told my girlfriends all the details about how awful the date was. The next day at work though he asked me to go out that night... I decided okay fine I'll give this guy one more chance... and so I told him I was going out with some of my intern friends but he was welcome to come along. He did... and we had an amazing night. We started seeing each other more & more and then in the fall he learned he was moving to Savannah. I cried... and cried some more... and cried some more and more... But then we decided to give long distance a go. We did it... 9 long months that were really tough. Then last August I moved to Savannah, he got back to Savannah in October... And now the rest is history. :) It might not be the cutest love story in the world, but this love story is ours. And I love it. So today I wanted to include some pins that are all about loveeeee.

Happy anniversary Nicole! And I think the story is adorable :) It's obviously not love at first sight for everyone, and at least you know for sure that you're supposed to be together!

So cute! My relationship wasn't exactly a "fairy tale" in the beginning, either... I almost think that makes it better!
