Full disclosure – This started out as an instagram post but then quickly took on a life of its own. So blog it is!
I’m a big ole sap when it comes to my hubby and our 𝗗𝗘𝗖𝗔𝗗𝗘 together, but alas, I’m only allowed 1️⃣ anniversary to bug him about, so I’ll celebrate here!
10 years ago, I was determine to live the “single” like during my 21st summer. I was taking summer classes at Bentley, had an internship as an event coordinator and was living with my bestie boo @devan.elizabeth… for much of May & June we sat by the pool, went to the beach, partied, drank WAYYYY too much vodka and bar hopped in our free time that wasn’t spent working or in class. We lived in a TINY 1 bedroom but it was home.
Little did i know that the week of my 21st birthday, I’d be “let go” from my internship for spending too much time on my school work and be forced to find a waitressing job to pay rent / continue to have fun!
I got the first job i applied for and having minimal to no experience outside of being a cocktail waitress, I dove in (as i do with most things)
A few days later I was assigned to train with this SUPER CUTE guy, who looked like he’d rather get a root canal than train this bubbly girl. I turned on my BEST flirting and a week later (July 4th) we were set to have our first “date” watching the fireworks with some friends. That all changed when we were assigned to close the restaurant together that night.
A week later we had out first official date, and the rest is history… We’ve been together ever since. 10 years, 3 apartments, 2 kitties and a whole lotta life!
Our relationship isn’t perfect. We’ve had our ups and downs but our bond is everlasting and our love is too. We’re partners in every aspect of life, including our jobs and he supports me in my side hustle and we have a beautiful life together.
We’ve truly grown up together, living out our twenties and major milestones that comes with those years. And to be honest, i couldn’t imagine doing it with anyone else!
