Well, we are both 1980 models, making us both 29 years old. I was raised in OKC by a single mom while Aaron was raised in OKC with both parents and a younger brother and sister. I was a cheerleader/dancer/gymnast, while Aaron played soccer and tennis. I was outgoing and wild, Aaron a little quieter and well-behaved.
We met in 1998 right after we graduated from the same high school. (There were 601 people in our class so we did not know each other at all). But we did have a lot of the same friends.
He went to OSU that first year of college and I stayed at OCCC, but transferred to OSU my 2nd year (to follow him, pretty much). College was our favorite time and I still miss it. We made such amazing friends during that time and still talk to many of them.
We were both biology majors and took a lot of classes together. After our undergrad degrees, he went on to veterinary school which is another 4 years. I took some time off to do odd jobs for a while, then I went to PA school (physician assistant). He graduated in 2006 and I graduated in 2007. Those were some tough years, since we were both so busy with studying and rotations, etc.
We got married in 2004, right in the middle of vet school. Crazy way to start a marriage, but it worked for us. We had an awesome wedding in Ponca City at the Marland Mansion. It was tons of fun! Then we went to the Dominican Republic for our honeymoon, which we both loved!!! Still our favorite trip destination.
He is now a practicing veterinarian in OKC, seeing small animals and exotics. (No livestock.) I work in Midwest City with an internal medicine doc. Both of us would love to find a way to go ahead and retire, but that opportunity just hasn't hit yet.
That brings us to what you all already know. We started trying to have a baby in June of 2008, assuming that it would go as planned. But as you know, that hasn't happened. We've dealt with it through humor and our relationship is as strong as ever.
Stay tuned to see where this story will take us next...
