4 years

Over the weekend my husband and I celebrated our 4 year anniversary! Those 4 years have flown by. I am soooooooo sooooooooooo incredibily lucky to have him!

We went out to eat at PF Chang's, then had a cookie at the mall for dessert(actually I had a chocolate chip cheesecake brownie!!), and then bought my husband a nice wedding ring, since the one he had was one we bought for like 20 bucks at the mall in Hawaii! He's really been needing a better one.

Well, I thought I'd share the story of how my husband and I met! Matt was a professional wrestler, and he had to move down here to Kentucky to train at Ohio Valley Wrestling, which is a wrestling school here in Louisville. I had been going to the shows every Wednesday night with one of my friends. And of course, me being 18 and my life at that time being all about BOYS, all I really liked was watching all the "hot" guys wrestle!

Well, Matt was one of them(LOL) that caught my eye... I was always super excited when he came out to wrestle! The friend that I had been going with told me that Matt was a Christian, and at that point exactly, I was like, "Oh my gosh, really? I have GOT to meet him. He is the one for me!" I had been looking for a good, Christian, church going boy!!! Who knew it would end up being a wrestler???

So...after one of the shows, my friend went up to him and told him about me(which I was extrememly mad about!), then Matt walked up to me in the parking lot and introduced himself...and the rest was history!

We hit it off right away...his faith was the main thing that attracted me to him. I knew he wasn't one of those people who just say they're a Christian-he actually lived it, and wasn't ashamed of it. I remember on our 2nd date thinking in my head, "I think I love him. He is the one. Thank you God, thank you God, thank you God!!" I just kept saying that over and over again. I couldn't believe I had found a cute, outgoing, funny guy who was also a good, Christian man. He was the answer to my prayers!!

I still thank God every single day for sending him to me!!

Sooo...2 years after meeting, we ran off and got married in Maui! It was wonderful; a dream come true! I had never wanted a traditional wedding, and neither did he, so we thought, "why not just elope??" We even didn't tell anyone until we got back! My only regret looking back, is that I wish my dad could have been at my wedding. He passed away 2 weeks later....and I know he would've loved to see his "first born"(what he always called me!) get married before he died....I just really didn't think he was going to die. I knew there was a chance, but I had faith that God would let him live just a few more years... So that is the only thing I regret, but I can't change it. :( But I know he was soooo happy for me, and he loved looking at all of our pictures from the wedding!

I am lucky to have Matt in my life, and I make sure that I don't every take him for granted, and treasure every moment spent with him!



  2. How wonderful Lindsay : ) What a blessing that your dad knew and loved Matt and knew you were going to be taken care of before he passed away. Congratulations on 4 years with your wrestling man : )
