|After our first Kiss as he was leaving to go home.|
Prom rolled around and we were still not dating just going has friends. We had a blast, and we both went to different houses at the end of the night. It wasn't until the day after prom that we became and Official couple.
After we graduated high school I moved out into my own apartment with a room mate and Joe slowly moved his way in. We then finally made it an official move about 3 months into the lease and Joe and I ended up moving into a different apartment. We lived together, worked together, and did everything together. I began to realize that he was the guy I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. The most memorable day was my 20th birthday. I was still sleeping, and Joe was preparing for the most scariest moment in his life so far. I was easily woken up by his voice and I noticed that all the windows were open and then I felt him reach over me and kiss me on my neck. I slowly rolled over to a ring sparkling in the sunlight and him asking me to marry him. I was shocked needless to say, not only was I not expecting it at all but then ring was so pretty! He literally had to ask me three times before I came out of shocked and said yes. That is for sure the best birthday ever!

|Upgraded me to this for our One year! which he gave to me early|
A couple months down the road joe had jokingly said something about military and how we would have it made if he was in, because we would live for free and have benefits. At that time we lived pay check to pay check and it was horrible. I agreed with what he said not thinking that it would be takin any father, but I was wrong. The next day we were at the recruiter's office and Joe was signing into the Air force. It all went so fast and before I knew it he was gone for BMT! Which might I add was the hardest thing ever!! We didn't get married before he left, which now I look back on it and I wish we did. We were going to wait till he got done with training and all. Well that was our plans, until while exchanging notes back and forth we both realized we just wanted to be together after BMT because we missed each other so much and didn't want to go a whole year without each other. So we planned to get married after his graduation in San Antonio Tx. I didn't tell my parents because I thought they would freak, and we had a lovely shotgun wedding at the river walk! It was very pretty. His family was there and they supported us through it. I was finally Mrs. M and I was so happy. The next day Joe and I called my mom and come to fund out she wasn't even mad. She said she was going to suggest it as well. Funny right? And this leads us to where we are now. A happy married couple who adore each other. Yes it wasn't the wedding of my dreams, but I wouldn't change it one bit.
