I logged onto my twitter today… & one of the first posts was by the beautiful Jessica Robertson of Duck Dynasty. She had a link posted that was titled “How the Robertson Couples Met”. Being a Duck Dynasty Fan I clicked on it & read up on each couple.
This article made my heart soo warm! Each couple has been together since High School, & married shortly after. I know a lot of people say things like… you got your whole life to get “tied down”… go live… your too young to get married.. Which can be true in some aspects…. however I liked Willie’s quote when he said “All our memories are together. Everything we have, we built together.” Him & Korie first met in Grade 3… & later married a year after high school.
Plus I believe if you are with the perfect one, you shouldn’t feel tied down.. they should be there to encourage you to pursue your dreams, to live your life.. & if you are REAL lucky you get to live your dreams together! Nothing better then sharing something you love with the one you love.
Here is T & I’s little love story. Hope he doesn’t mind me sharing it….
T & I’s families grew up together in two small but neighboring communities. My best friend growing up was also T’s cousin. Needless to say.. we definitely knew who each other were from a young age. Although to me T was my friends little cousin (okay.. I’ll admit I’m old then T..!) & to T I was his older cousins “Hot” friend! haha So I like to think.
Anyway, 2 years ago we were both at the same local ball tournament (go figure eh.. farm kids meeting a the local ball tourny out in the middle of the local field.. hehe). My good buddy sat me down & was like “Hey we should set up T & so in so..” I right then & there looked over at T & thought….nooo way man he is mine! This being to my surprise, seeing we hadn’t hung out or talked prior to all of this. I’m guessing it was that whole “Love at First Sight” thing… After that the rest is history… we were inseparable that whole summer. Six months later we were moving into a little place together. It may have seemed fast to some, but to us it was right on time. We have now lived happily together for a year & a half.
I have had more fun with T then I could have ever imagined. He pushes me to my limits, encourages me to continue to be the best person I can, has patience with me when teaching me new things (like how to ski!), & gives me shit when I’m out of line. Love everything about that dude!!
I hope I do the same for him… & can keep that massive smile on his face… which sometimes scares me cause I know it usually involves some kind of motorized vehicle, jumps & getting sweeeeet air! His little nephew doesn’t call him “EXTREME Uncle T” for nothing… 😉 But boys will be boys!
Be it by our Grandparents, Parents, or Our Best Friends… T & I are surrounded by people who show us what true love really is & that in good times & bad you stick true to each other & stand by each other.
I want to hear how you & your love met… Everyone has a story… & everyone’s story is the Best! Don’t be Shy…
I feel this world needs a little more love right now.
Luv Ya … WRG
