We met in 2011 and after not catching on to her hints for ever 6 months i finally messaged her. The only problem was it was the day before she was moving to Maryland. So for 3 months we talked and video chatted. She even came to visit about right after our 1 month anniversary. It felt so different than other relationships, I just knew she was the one.
We were making the long distance relationship work but we really misses being with each other. After 3 months, at the end of 2011, she moved back to south Carolina so we could be together. 3 Months later, I proposed to her and she happily said YES. Shortly after we found out we were expecting a little girl, our family was starting. In September 2012 our daughter Peyton was born and life felt amazing.
Then in December 2012, i was hit head on by a drunk driver when i was coming home from work. I sustained several severe injuries including both legs being broke and a ripped aorta, I was minutes away from dying.Our family was almost torn apart as soon as it started. After a lot of surgeries and prayer i came through and was able to go home for my daughters first Christmas.
The Recovery was long but my wife helped me through it all, she never left my side. We got married in December 2013 and are still going strong.
Living, Loving & Enjoying Life💖
