serendipity, fate, God's plan.. all the above.

if you don't follow life could be a dream blog by jana, get on that. recently, she's been making some posts titled, 'he wasn't the one.'  i could not help but think of my past experiences as well as how completely blessed i am to be where i am in my life. it is a miracle.

let's talk about history, shall we? mr. schroeder & i both. it amazes me. and i would really like to share it.

my sister served an LDS mission in jacksonville florida. she eventually moved into an area where she met elder schroeder (that's my husband, in case you didn't catch that). over weeks & months, they grew pretty close as friends. one day, elder schroeder was looking through my sister's itouch & saw photos of me.

TREV: "hey sister, i know her."
my SIS: "no you don't. from where?"
TREV: "i'm just kidding. i probably just made out with her once or something."
punk, right? after my sister wrote me and asked me if i knew the kid, i knew i didn't. but after seeing some pictures, i always thought he was one attractive man with sexy features. i mean, i still do, but... let's rewind real quick, to talk about mr. schroeder's dating life.

before mr. schroeder served his LDS mission:
• i dated a boy before his mission. & waited for him. was set on marrying the guy, too.
• trevor dated girl for quite some time before his mission, & she was supposedly waiting.

during mr. schroeder's mission: 
• trevor wrote girl off because he was getting distracted from the work.
• my missionary came home. we dated. & talked about marriage daily.
• a few months later, mr. schroeder received a letter from an old school crush. & wrote her.

when mr. schroeder came home: 
• he dated girl.
• i was still dating boy.

february 2011: 
• trevor just wasn't feeling it with girl. he soon felt he never wanted to get married.
• boy & i mutually broke up.  it was the hardest thing i had been through at that point.

we both happened to break up with our significant others in the same week.  mr. schroeder contacted my sister & asked if he could take me out.
long story short, i went. and i knew i loved him the second i laid eyes on him.


i felt it was too good to be true, and still feel that way about my main squeeze. gosh, he's a babe.

  4. Love hearing stories like this. It's amazing how everything just lined up so you guys could be together. Your sis serving with him, both breaking up with your exes the same week... It's not by chance for sure! :)

  8. Isn't it interesting how much plans can change? :D I waited for a guy on his mission too, the full 2 years, we were even engaged for a few months when he got home. But thank goodness things went south, because he was not the right one. And I was so fortunate to find Joe :) And you were so fortunate to find your lovely Mr. Shroeder!!! I'm really glad that God's plan is 100% of the time greater than ours. You two are so cute.
