6 Years! Wait What?!

It's very crazy to me to think that Ethan and I have been married for 6 years already. I literally remember the year before we got married and I thought "GOSH my wedding is NEVER going to get here"! And then BAM we were married, went on our honeymoon, and poof six years later we have two kids and two dogs!

Our story. For those of you who don't know Ethan or I, our story is quite simple. We met during church. I was six and he was about nine years old. We basically grew up together. We saw each other every Sunday. Our families were actually quite close as well! I have always had a crush on Ethan ever since we met (like every other girl in church). But nothing really came about until I was in high school and he started college. I was in 10th grade and he started coming over to our house like every weekend! I was excited about this but didn't want to make it a big deal and get my hopes up. I remember one day my best friend Rachel saying "I think Ethan likes Cort"! I was super surprised by this comment but also excited. Well that was short lived cause my two other friends in the room were like "NO way". Literally about two weeks later we started dating! 

After I graduated in '05 my parents and Ethan and I went to Florida for a graduation getaway! That is when he asked me to marry him. I was excited because that is what I always wanted. To be married young. I don't know why. I mean it's not for everyone. Not a lot of people or my friends understood why I wanted to be married young (18). I just simply said "I know he is the one I want to be with for the rest of my life, why should I wait"? So that next year about a month before I turned 19 we got married. May 26th, 2006. I am so glad we did. Don't get me wrong, I don't think marriage is a walk in the park. I would never want anyone to think that it is. It's something you have to work at everyday sometimes multiple times in a day. But it's worth it. I am thankful that I got to marry one of my best friends. 

Here is some pictures from our wedding day!
