16 days brings wonderful things.

you know.... i just can't help but to think about the beginning of our relationship....
and how we were engaged on day 16....
yes, after 16 days, we decided to get married....
and how i knew the entire world would think we were insane.

i often questioned my sanity as well....

but there are some times in life, when you just follow. your. heart....
when all the "reasons why" may never sound good enough to anyone else....
but they're good enough to you.
there are some things in life that just don't need reason,
for LOVE is reason enough.

16 days, was one of those times....

Jason is definitely one of those things....
those wonderful, WONDERFUL things.... =)

Sometimes it's best to follow your heart...no matter what others say.

HeyGirl,

I too experienced close to 16 days!

We met on St Patty's Day- although I new her from the Emergency Room where she worked in X-ray. We were married 3 months later in July. So yes--it does happen and it's the BEST!! They "Kiss my Hiney- they!!" were wrong! It's lasted 28 years!!!

May you have many years of Love and Happiness Ashley!

John

I'm so happy for you!

John

Oh, Ashley! That's so awesome! It sounds a little like my parents' story. She was 15 - he was 25; they dated for around 3 months and were married. They shared 50 years together - what a "gutsy" decision (that I'm glad they went with)!

Wow!! I would have said you're NUTS, too!!!! Clearly, it worked out ok, though, EH?!!!

Ashley King said...

hahaha, everyone, in case you haven't noticed, I AM NUTS!!! hahahaha, but that's outside the marriage.... he is absolutely wonderful (most of the time), but i certainly couldn't imagine any part of my life without him in it!!! =) but i'm still nuts.... we've debated whether we should tell the kids our "timeline" or not.... but you know me, i'm all about honesty but he said, "i don't want them to meet someone and think it's okay to get married after 2 months." hahahaha. "DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO!!!!" lol....

Doesn't matter what people thought! Sometimes following your heart is the best decision you can make. :)

I knew the first time that I talked to Danny that he would one day be my husband. And I moved 7000km away from home to be with him less than seven months after we first spoke. Sometimes the heart knows.

I'm happy you guys are so happy!
