Random quotes :)

Boys have the key to a girl’s heart, but a best friend doesn’t
need one. She knows the secret handshake.

I think what we mean to say is that we’re so grateful for what we have because we’ve been through so much this year. So many things that were not easy and so many things that make you realize you’re all grown up and on your own. Hopefully we came out the other side stronger with the realization that we do have a lot to be grateful for. So maybe instead of focusing on what we don’t have, we can focus on what we do have.
- One Tree Hill

you should never forget about the past, everything happens for a reason. instead learn from the past,learn from your mistakes, and learn from every experience in life. never forget those that have changed you either for the good or the bad because they have made you who you are. And always remember that life is meant to be tough, to challenge you, and to make you stronger.

What if..

The other day, Colton and I had the "What if" discussion. What if we had different classes in Elementary School, What if he didn't go to McPherson and move, What if we fell in love with other people, There are few people out there who can say they married their Grade-school sweeetheart, but we can. I knew I loved him the day I found out he left me for St. Joseph school in 3rd Grade, Mr. Wine, my teacher, broke the bad news to me. I remember sitting by the foldable walls they had a Roosevelt Elementary, on the first day of 3rd grade, I believe I was counting coins on how to make a dollar. I waited and waited for Colton to come into the classroom, and he never did. I asked Mr. Wine where he was, and he told me that Colton's parents decided to move him to St. Joseph School. I. Was. Devistated. Of course, I never knew what it meant to be heartbroken in 3rd grade, but at that moment, my world came crashing down, he was my best friend! I can remember that day like it was yesterday, that day changed everything! I was looking forward to ALL summer of having the same class as him. As I look back, I wonder, "what if" his parents didn't make him go to a different school, What if, it's possible to fall in love with someone and 3rd grade, and still be in love 15 years later to the same person. There were so many times we broke up and got back together, dated other people, got back together, fought, and made up. I truly believe, everything happeneds for a reason. I guess we could be considered "Soul Mates," whatever it may be, I'm the luckiest woman in the world to be married to this man, he is my everything. So, when we were talking about all the "What ifs", I just had to think, there is no other way I would have it. If the past didn't happen, we probably wouldn't be sitting here, in our own home, on our own couches, with our own wedding bands on our fingers.
My maid of honor at our wedding said this quote during her toast....

"When im older & my daughter
asks me who my first love was
i dont want to have to pull out
the old photo album.
i want to be able to point across
the room & say
hes sitting right over there. <3"

Now, how many people do you know will get to say that to their daughter? :)
