The Ugly Duckling.


Yesterday while driving I told Philip another story about when I was single and didn't have anyone ever even remotely interested in me. even a little bit. until I met him. and he looked at me with all sincerity in his voice and said "did you trick me? because I never had that problem. I had to beat the girls off with a stick. and yet somehow we ended up together"
to which I replied "You're the only one who saw my worth!!!!!!!"

As funny as I found that conversation, and I found that hilarious, it is so true! I almost never had dates to dances, I never got asked out, I had 1 boyfriend but it was very, very short lived. No boys were ever into me. As much as I hated it at the time, I am glad now. 

Philip said he was just curious why no one was ever interested in me. 
So I came up with a few reasons











Ultimately I am just glad that Philip found me when he did. He's the best and he makes me want to be my best. 

Did you ever go through an awkward phase? Did it take you 23 years to finally be done?

  4. I think you're still adorable in those pictures. It was just not meant to happen with anyone other than Phillip and that's perfect!

  5. I love your huge smile in those photos... it is your inner beauty shining through! My awkward phase was in high school. I only wore shoes with a 3" sole because I was so insecure about my height. I could only ever find the shoes in black, so I wore the same ones every day in high school. And when I met my husband I thought he would be turned off by my 5'0" stature, but instead he loved it. I think we found some great guys!

  7. oh thnk you! The most I look at these pictures the more I just have to laugh! I was kinda dorky and awkward but at the time I didn't realize it! I was not confident at all in High school but I think I was just meant to be with Philip

  8. We really did! I do have a giant smile! I did a lot of growing up and maturing, grew into my frame and became more confident. I think over all I am glad I didnt have a lot of heartbreak before I met Philip. As painful as it was to not have dates at some points in life...I am probably better off
