Total Basset Case: 15

Dec 10, 2014

15

Would be the number of years that Mister and I am have been dating as of today.
I lived it and I still just do not believe it.
To find the person in the world that makes you ridiculously happy at all moments is incredible.

It all started 15 years ago today when...
Mister and I were standing at my house...
me with rollers in my hair (thank you cheerleading)...
and he kissed me...
and I kissed him back, of course...
and then I freaked OUT (inside of my head, of course).
I had to cheer a game shortly after that and could barely keep it together.

Before that night, we had been on a few dates and I was 100% smitten with him.
My friends and I made it a daily (probably hourly) point to always 'just happen' to walk past him and his friends in the hallways at school.
We had to do something to get those senior boys to talk to us freshman girls.
But, hey, apparently it worked and we've high school sweethearts ever since ;)

Just a few shots of us looking like children.  Babies.
That first one is straight out of high school.
His hair...my eye makeup...it is a good thing we've both evolved.

Mister has made me feel so incredibly loved every single day in the past 15 years.
He makes me laugh, shows me unconditional love and patience at all moments.
He makes me smile just to look at him and think about his cute face and grin.  
He knows me way better than I know myself and I can't think of a better person to spend every day with than with him as my best friend by my side. 
Well, him and the basset hound, of course.

Annnnd that's enough sap ;)
Back to regular programming shortly.

I LOVE this! You manage to have us beat by one year... 14 years for us as of November 18 :) Sometimes I feel like it's so cheesy (or slightly weird) to have been together since high school, but reading the sweet story from someone else reminds me how amazing it is that I've gotten to spend this long with my love already!

Also. Is that seriously not a wig on Blake in that first photo?!

Happy day of dating! (As I used to call it because I always thought it sounded so weird to have an "anniversary" when we weren't yet married.)

I agree with Anne it's nice to know that other couples have been together "forever" because when you tell people you're middle school sweethearts you get some crazy looks!

Congratulations on 15!

Brittany said...

That high school picture is awesome! Haha. Congrats. I have a huge love for high school sweethearts. To have made it through all those teenage awkward and challenging years together says a lot. Cheers to another 15! Xo
