That Man of Mine

Sometimes when I look at my life I wonder how things ended up the way they did. If you would have told me the first night that I saw Arsen (doing his Arsen dance on a stage surrounded by girls) that I would end up married to that guy, I would never have believed you. Of course I thought he looked like a lot of fun and I loved his faux-hawk, but marriage? No way. A baby? You must be kidding.

Even after we officially met and started dating, I thought for sure it was just a fun college thing. After it turned a little more serious I started thinking there was probably something there, something more long-term. But to look at us now, less than five years later, it blows my mind. 

But even though it seems crazy that things turned out this way, I wouldn't change a bit of it for anything in the world. He may drive me crazy sometimes when he leaves his socks laying in the living room or zones out while I'm telling him a story, but I can't imagine doing this marriage and babies thing with anyone else in the world. I'm one of the lucky ones who got the chance to marry my best friend, and no matter how mad he may make me, I know there is no one out there who would be a better fit for me. 

I'm so excited to see how our relationship changes and grows over the next little bit. I know bringing our baby boy into the world is going to be the most incredible, amazing, life-changing thing ever. And I can't wait to see Arsen as a dad. I know he will truly be the best.

And I'm thankful for the beginning. The days when I thought he was just a "friend", just someone to party with and act crazy with and laugh with. I'm so glad that we experienced a little bit of the insanity of college together. A time when the only thing we had to worry about was writing a paper or studying for a test, or what bar we were meeting all of our friends at that night. When we're old and gray we can look back on our memories and our photos and remember all the stupid, irresponsible things we did together. And say a little prayer that our children and grandchildren don't take after us in that aspect....

I truly look forward to every single thing to come in life knowing that I have this sweet, sweet man by my side. He makes every bit of life better for me, and I'm so thankful that he's mine.


  1. Definitely one of the best looking couples in the blog world! It's such a special thing when you realize just how TRULY lucky we are to have found our true other halves. :) If the baby is even half as cute as the two of you, he'll be a sight to see!

  2. Y'all are just too cute together and that baby boy is going to be so handsome. It is great that even after the grown-upness of a baby happens the two of you will still have those "remember when" memories to keep you laughing.
