Today is 1 Year for Me and Christopher!!

**First off, my mom had minor surgery this morning and all went well. "Thank You" for the prayers! =D**

I can’t believe it has already been one year since my amazing boyfriend, Chris, and I have started dating! I love him SO much! He is not my first boyfriend, but he is my first love and I pray he is my last! He is such a huge support to me and is always there for me. He is understanding; he tries so hard to understand my health issues and how to deal with them. He is sweet, kind, and caring. He has a wonderful smile! He is very smart; he will be graduating college next December with a double degree in Computer and Electrical Engineering. He knows how to make me smile and we both enjoy the simple things in life. He has introduced me to new things like his love for video games and believe it or not I like playing most of them… his love for Michigan Football, not so much! Christopher is just an overall great guy and I’ve never been happier! I thank God everyday for bringing us together. God knew I needed him and he needed me. =D

So, how did we meet? Well, for over 2yrs. before we met my dad was dating his Aunt (they are still dating). My dad knew who Chris was, I did not, I had never even heard of him. Every family event that I went to at my dad's girlfriend’s house he wasn’t there and every family event I didn’t go to he went (too funny, I guess we weren’t suppose to meet till a certain time). Last Thanksgiving, I got a phone call from my dad saying “Happy Thanksgiving” … my dad had been upset with me the week before because my math grade was bad… so my dad tells me he found someone to help me with my math and then he handed the phone to Chris. We talked and that was it, Chris later friended me on facebook and wrote me a message. From there is there we started dating and on Dec. 7th, 10 days after the phone call he asked me if I wanted to be his girlfriend. Awww! ♥

Though today we are in school all day, we will be going out to dinner! It has been an amazing whirlwind of a year with my wonderfully amazing boyfriend… who will be 25 next month (Shhh… I didn’t tell you that)! I pray we have many, many more years together!

I Love You Christopher! ♥

With LOTS of Hope, Love, and Faith,


  1. Congrats Lauren and thank you for sharing the sweet story of how the two of you met! All in perfect time, huh?!

    Stef, Ryan, Wyatt and Logan

  2. Your story is a true testament to being in the right place at the right time...everything happens for a reason. You two look so great together too. Congratulations on the one year and enjoy your special dinner tonight.

  3. Congrats, Congrats. Because of my fiance's strong dislike of Michigan and strong love for Ohio State, I am with you on not getting too far into football. They scare me with their craziness over the games sometimes.

    I think people are always brought into your life when they are meant to be. Not necessarily when you would expect or desire... but I am living proof that the oddest of connections can sometimes be the most powerful
