Here is a little background on RK and I, before I jump into current-day life.
RK and I have known each other longer than we can remember. Our grandparents lived across the street from each other for 10 years until my family bought RK's grandma's house when she downsized. RK's grandma (Grandma Billie) always used to tell us that would get married some day when we were teenagers. We were both involved with long-term high school relationships with other people, so we would smile and nod and go on about our way, since there was no arguing with Grandma Billie at that phase of her life.
A few years later, after both of our high school relationships had ended, my sister Suz was dating RK's best friend. We found ourselves spending a lot of time together, and eventually started dating. We seemed to click right away, and since we had known each other forever, we just had the past 5 years or so to catch up on in the early part of our relationship. We had a great time going on weekend trips, discovering new music, spending time with my family, and just enjoying being together.
About a year after we started dating, we were in Pigeon Forge, TN getting married on the deck of a beautiful cabin in the mountains with my immediate family and RK's best friend. It was a beautiful, intimate wedding and a magical time in our lives. We had a reception with the rest of our family and friends when we returned home and then started our new life as Mr. & Mrs.
