Once Upon A Time... (Our Story)

Seven years ago today, I got up, put on a white dress, and pledged my heart and my life to this one special man.

I have hinted before at our story but would like to tell you all about it to honor this special day:

Once upon a time, there was a princess girl, who was lonely and sad; she was approaching a crossroad in her life and didn't know where to go from there. One boring night, she looked in her magic mirror logged on to MySpace, where she stumbled upon the picture of a knight from a far-away land across the ocean a U.S soldier. He had the most beautiful, sad eyes she had ever seen and sent him a fairy message email. He responded and for about a week, they wrote letters emails back and forth every day. After about a week, she asked him to send her a bird carrying his voice to her for his phone number. Their first conversation lasted about two hours, and they kept on talking for hours every day, until she asked him to meet her. The following Saturday, she mounted her horse got into her car to meet the man sh already loved for the first time. When she first laid eyes on him, she couldn't believe that he could be even more handsome than in the picture. They walked together along the river banks, first side by side, then hand in hand. They shared a meal and many, many conversations. Only the next evening did she return home. The following week, he came to visit her and send a message ahead that said: I love you. She was beyond happy and all her worries had disappeared. A week later they were planning their wedding. About a month after their first meeting, he kneeled in front of her and asked her to marry him. She cried and accepted his proposal. However, the king and queen her parents were not happy that their daughter would marry a man like him and tried to prevent their plans. But their love prevailed and less than five months after looking in each others' eyes for the first time, they entered the palace together to speak their vows that would bind them for the rest of their lives.
THE kiss


Yes, that's about our story. I can't believe that it's been seven years already, and I'm pretty sure that there a some people out there who can't believe that we're still together. We had a short and intense courtship and engagement, but we knew that we were made for each other.

During the last seven years, we moved four times, had two beautiful daughters together, an have grown into a unitiy. I cannot imagine ever being without him any more. Our relationship hasn't always been perfect, but being with him has always been better than anything else I could imagine.

I am lucky enough to be married to my rock, my partner, my love, and the best daddy to our daughters I could possibly imagine. I love this guy beyond words and can't wait what's ahead of us. I know that it might not always be sunshine, but that I'd rather share my umbrella with him than facing the storm by myself.

    1. I've read the story of you and Kyle, and it's so amazing, Jen! I'm glad you two found together eventually. I guess my family was so against the wedding in the beginning because Germans don't do quicky-weddings usually. Most people date for years and years until they decide to get married (or not). Definitely surprised everyone there I guess :-)

    3. I guess so, even though I'm still not sure if I should consider it funny or obnoxious that relatives asked me in 2009 when we were on vacation in Germany with 13-month old Lily where our "older one" was.. No, I was not pregnant!
