This Christmas didn’t quite turn out as planned but everything happens for a reason. We had planned to go visit Nic’s family and attend his brother’s wedding, however, like the AF usually does…it ruined our plans. Nic didn’t receive the leave we had planned on soo that leaves just the 2 of us here in Florida for Christmas and my birthday! The last few days have been stressful, crazy and sad but I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that we won’t be with extended family this Christmas. I’m actually enjoying the time of relaxing playing board-games, watching Christmas movies and just being together. esp. when I think back on last Christmas and how sad I was that I couldn’t even talk to him because he was in boot camp! This made me start thinking about the past year…I never would have guessed that I would be married to my best friend and soul mate who I just happened to grow up with at the end of 2011! In fact I probably would have laughed and thrown things at anyone who even mentioned marriage. I would never have guessed I would be living in Florida soo far away from my home in jerzzeyy, my amazing church, all of my family and friends and the only life I’d ever known. I would neverr have guessed I would be amazingly content going from a total workaholic to a housewife! But here I am happier than ever and even though I’m missing my family terribly I now have my own family! Soo much has changed in just one year! There have most definitely have been many ups and downs but overall I can say I am insanely happy with the results! 2011 has been good to me and I can’t wait for all that 2012 will bring! 10 of my hopes and prayers for this coming year are that: 1. We will find a church that we love and can grow and mature in 2. We see more time together than deployment 3. Family and friends stay happy and healthy and appreciate the gift of health…that my dad will be free from migraines! 4. Our marriage will grow stronger and we love each other even more 5. We appreciate the time we do get to spend with family and friends and try not to dwell on the sad, lonely times 6. That Nic, our family and all our military friends and beyond will stay safe while serving our country 7. We get a better president 8. God provides a job I love 9. Grow our family ;) 10. Lastly but most importantly that God will grow and build my faith, love, and trust in Him…hopefully without too much pain along the way! :) Cheer’s too all that led up to this point and all that is to come! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! 

Riverwalk! Jan. 2011

Riverwalk! Jan. 2011

I decided I would start blogging about my new life as a USAF wife! All the the ups and downs and everything in between. SO first I will start with the story of us. :) Well Nic and I grew up together at the same church where his dad was our youth pastor. We were always friends but never anything more even though we both had secret crushes on each other while dating others. =P Then one day I found out that they would be moving to Va for a bunch of reasons that are not important now. Soo I wanted him to know how I felt but…I was like 15 with braces and no confidence. haha So I did what any teenage girl would do in my position…flirted…a lot. And to my surprise he flirted back :) We just became the best of flirting friends before they left until a few days before they moved. We were at church one day by the kitchen to be exact and out of no where he grabbed my hand, he only held it for about 15 secs but it made me melt when he looked at me and smiled. Nothing more was said…that was it. He left a few days later and we didn’t really keep in touch for a few years. Then randomly we started calling each other before going out at night or whatever reason we thought of, that lasted a couple years. Then one spring we got to talking on the phone, for reeeal this time! We talked every day for at least 4 hours! But we were still “just friends” however, this time there was something more… a little SPARK! ;) Soo Nic decided that summer to make the long drive from Virginia to Jersey. We kissed the first day but he was here for a wk and nothing more happened except we just had a blast getting to know each other again. I think he asked me out every day though before he had to go back to Va. I just wasn’t ready to risk the great friendship we had. So the time came for him to leave and we kissed goodbye not knowing what would happen this time. Well we still talked every day and it was starting to get impossible for me to deny what was happening between us. As hard as I tried not to I was falling in love with my best friend. During this time he was getting ready to leave for boot camp in November. Soo before he left he came back to Jersey for about 2 wks! The time we spent together was amazing. We would laugh until we cried every day! I’ll never forget the night I said I wanted to drive to LBI to look at the stars and even just the drive there I couldn’t stop smiling, he made me feel so different and loved like I never had before. (Side note Taio Cruz’s Dynamite played about 100 times during that car ride.) But then the time came for him to leave again, this time I wouldn’t get to talk to him like we had before. =/ I didn’t want to commit to a relationship because I had never done long distance before and I wasn’t sure I wanted to start. So we said goodbye not knowing what would happen but agreed I would come to his graduation in January and figure out what came next for us. After he left and we didn’t talk much I realized ohhh shooott I can’t live without this kid! It was during those wks of boot camp that I realized he had changed my life forever and I could never be without him again. I was crazy, stupid, head-over-heels in love with Nic Trumble! :) Sooo I came to graduation and while walking down the Riverwalk I told him “I just want you to know that if you ask me out now…I will say yes.” He laughed and said “Ok.” but of course didn’t ask me then. After a full day of waaaiting for him to ask me while we were in my room and he was holding me tight he said “Christi Reynolds will you be my girl?” of course I said yes. A few months later while he was in tech we decided we were over the distance and ready to be together forever. So after 5 months of not seeing each other…He called and asked my dad to marry me and we decided we would get engaged and married in one wkend and the have a big wedding later. He proposed the wkend I came to Texas, however, despite all of our cab rides to the courthouse and clerk’s office we had a marriage license unsigned because the clerk never showed up. Two weekends later I came back and we were married! That goodbye was definitely one of the hardest I wouldn’t see him again for 3 months only days before our big wedding! He finished up most of his training and came home to mee! We had an amazing wedding with family and friends and after many very difficult goodbyes we were on our way to start our new life on the panhandle of Florida to live happily ever after! :)
