JUSTIN and I....AND BRANTLEY
May 26, 2016
Where it all started! One facebook like turned into another, and another, and....well you get the point. Finally , Justin slid into my DM's HAHA. We were surprised we had never met before because, 1.We had tons of mutual friends and 2.We only lived a town apart growing up. We messaged literally all night long.

We chatted ALL day and talked about how it would be nice to meet up sometime. Well, here's the catch, I was only here for the summer. Come August I was going back to school in North Carolina. Around 9:30pm Justin had texted me and said want to hang out tonight....total last minute thing. I originally was thinking absolutely not! This random guy from facebook wants to come pick me up and drive around. If it wasn't for my sister-in-law, who made me go, who knows if we would be where we are today. Kelly (my SIL) turned the find my friends app on, on my phone, just in case I was about to get in the car with a facebook kidnapper. Before I knew it he was parked at the end of my driveway waiting for me. Yes that is what I said, the end of my driveway. Let me just have this diesel truck pull up my driveway and wake up my day. "Dev where are you going?" "Don't worry dad just going to drive around with a random guy from facebook, be back soon!" I don't think that conversation would have went well LOL. So. we drove around all night long. Eventually, we realized it was 11:45 and he had to be up for work in the morning so he brought me home and off he went.

I meet Justin's whole family....talk about moving fast. It wasn't planned out. We were going to Cabela's (our favorite store) and we had to pick up Justins cousin from his house, on the way. Well that turned into getting out of the truck and Justin's dad, uncle, cousins, sister, and the whole fam standing in the driveway hanging out. Talk about being caught off guard. They were the absolute sweetest people, let me tell you, and now I'm lucky enough to call them all my in-laws!

Well I made my decision! I'm moving back to CT. Let's take a road trip! Justin, Remi (our dog), and I drove to NC to get all my stuff and move me back to CT. I guess you could say I knew I was going to eventually marry that boy one day! I mean what guy, that knows you less than 2 month ago, drives 11 hours to move you home with him....the guy you're going marry, that's who! I was right HAHA.
I know how bad of me I don't remember the exact date. We are PREGNANT! Justin and I talked about having kids one day and then we decided this was the time and we wanted one now! We knew we were meant to be together and neither of us was going anywhere so, why the heck not? You only live once right, live it the way you want to. We were over the moon when we found out that we were going to be parents. Funny story on how we found out. I took a test and thought that it was negative.....it was at the time. After Justin came home from work he asked, "Did you take a test?" I handed him the negative test all bummed and upset. He said "Wait really?" I said, "Yeah its negative I guess we'll have to try again." Him, "Dev this is positive!" Insert excited screams and jumping up and down! We were going to be a Momma and Daddy!

Exactly 1 year from the day that Justin first picked me up and we drove around. It was gender reveal day! everyone, including myself, thought that I was having a baby girl.....we were wrong! As soon as that balloon popped I was in Awh! Excited for sure, but definitely shocked that it wasn't a girl. I turned around and look at all our friends and family in excitement. Once I turned back around to look at Justin I had to look down because he was on one knee!!!! <Insert sobbing water works> Never in a million years did I think I would get a fiancé on the same day as our gender reveal. Well when Justin goes big he goes big HAHA

WEDDING DAY! This day was perfect to say the least. I really wish I could go back and do it all over again because it honestly went by sooooo fast! To forever and ever!
Justin and I are enjoying married life. it really isn't much different than life before marriage. I mean we already lived together and had a kid together, so things are all still the same. The next big thing will be when we finally have another baby! Hopefully soon, but what's meant to be will be, so when it happens it happens!
