Your Happily Ever After
Our Love Story
Bryce and I both went to Iowa State University in 2017. I was a freshman in college, newly understanding the importance of living on my own and having responsibilities to carry (crazy concept, right?!), and meeting new people that I still cherish to this day. He was a junior in college, working towards his engineering degree, having fun with his friends. A friend of mine mentioned thatshe knew of a party going on at, what I now and will forever know as, the "Ski House". I still giggle when I tell people the name.
My roommate and I made the last minute decision to go and have some fun. I never knew that going to a party in college would change my life forever and I'm so grateful it did. I walked into a house full of people dancing to loud music, playing random games and just overall having a good time. As cheesy as it sounds, the moment I walked in I saw a cute, tall, brown curly haired boy from across the room and felt the pit of my stomach drop to my toes. To this day I still tell him that I knew then and there that we would be something special. But of course, as the girl I was then, I couldn't gather the courage to spark up a conversation. Lucky enough for me, my roommate saw him walk behind me and said "Just talk to him!!!!" and what do you know,
I turned around and I was face to face with the love of my life. Completely horrified, of course, because I couldn't find ANY words to say at the time. I still give my roommate credit for encouraging me to talk to him, because really, I wouldn't have if it weren't for her. Eventually I did find something to say, even if it was really awkward. I'm typically known for that. He asked me if I would dance on the couch with him (do all college kids do this?) and ironically, I said no. He was convinced I wasn't into him after I said no, but I resorted to dancing on the table with him instead. Smart, right? It was fun though, I do have to admit. A day later we sat together, watching friends on Netflix, and told each other about our lives.
This is significant because we both were pretty reserved people. He ended up asking me "Do you like goldfish?". Of course the answer was yes, so we ate goldfish and continued to chat about... everything. Still, to this day, we buy goldfish and ask the same question. That might be my favorite memory. The rest is history. We've been together ever since, now living in Milwaukee together. I still thank the stars for aligning that night. My younger self and my future self could never be more thankful. He is an angel, my love continues to grow for him every day.
