6 years ago today

April Fool's Day? Pssshh... it should be "Ross & Allison Day." Because why not!? After all, today is special.

Today marks six years that my sweet hubby and I have been together and one & a half years that we've been married. So um, yea, today is pretty great.

Time flies when you're having fun, and that's exactly what has happened over the past six years. Just the other day, I asked Ross, "What was the first thing that you noticed about me when we met?" And his response was, "Well, I thought you were out of my league." Precious response right there.

Many of you may be wondering, how did Ross and I get to this point in our lives, happily married? Well, pull up a seat and get cozy. I'll tell you all about it. And enjoy the photos below. They're all from 2007 - our first year of dating each other! Oh oh, and before we get started, just go ahead & push the play button below. It's mine & Ross' wedding song. It describes us to a T!

Ross and I went to college together at Sam Houston State University. We met at a Halloween party in 2006. I was dressed as an angel and he was a UPS guy. I was a mere 19 years old and once I saw him, I literally remember thinking to myself, "I'm going to make him mine!" I always knew that I'd meet my husband in college, but I was surprised how much he knocked me off my feet.
This was our first picture ever! We were so young and skinny :)
That Halloween night we flirted with each other a lot, but he was seeing someone else. So we didn't really pursue anything until a few months later. We started "talking" (anyone else remember that term? ha) around March and I was the happiest girl ever when he asked me to be his girlfriend in April.
Two years later in 2009, we hit a weird point in our relationship and we broke up for 1 week. Actually 5 days to be exact. It was hell. Honestly - it was BAD. I couldn't eat or sleep. Thinking about it now, it makes me sad. But this was a pivotal point in our relationship. Through those 5 days of hell, we learned the most important lesson of our lives: we could not live without each other. From that point on, it was a relationship where we put each other first and always remembered how much we needed each other.
Needless to say, we had a lot of fun together.
Finally, he proposed in October 2010, exactly 4 years from the day that we met! We immediately set a date and started planning. We married on October 1, 2011 and it was THE happiest day of my entire life. In fact, the truth is that he's all I need. Though we definitely want to have kids, I could be the happiest woman of all time knowing that I get to keep him forever.
We were college sweethearts, and have grown up so much together. I love that we've already gotten to experience so much of our lives together and have the rest of our lives to look forward to. I love everything about my husband. He consumes me.
God has definitely blessed me. In fact, it's kind of mind blowing when you think about it: we were literally created for each other, by God. I love LOVE. I hope everyone finds their marriage to be as blessed as we do!
