a person ideally suited to another as a close friend or romantic partner.
This is the cutest couple with one of the cutest stories. I am letting Sian take over my blog to tell their epic love story.
"Cody and I have a love story like no other.
It all began way back in 1993 in jolly ole England! The both of us actually met when we were toddlers; I was just two years old and Cody was three. His dad was in the US Air Force and the Clark family had ended up stationed across the pond in Oxfordshire, UK (where I am originally from).
Our elder siblings ended up in the same class at school, and when Corey became mesmerized by Shelly's flashing kicks, they quickly became friends. This was the beginning of a family friendship, which was strengthened by the regular routine of waiting for them in the playground at the end of every school day and taking a trip to either the sweet shop or McDonald's.
After some time, John received a new assignment and the Clark's moved back to the states. Our parents kept in touch for a while but unfortunately ended up losing touch. We never forgot about THAT American family... The Clark's. And in fact, my sister spent hours tirelessly searching the internet years later, trying to find them… Unfortunately not having any luck!
Almost twenty years later, totally out of the blue, John found my mum on Facebook… Pretty crazy, huh?! From there, Cody and I reconnected as if we hadn't missed a beat. There was an undeniable connection between us, despite all the miles in the way. The communication became more frequent, to the point where we would be texting, skyping or voice messaging each other constantly (well, as much as the time difference would allow). At this point, we'd finally admitted that neither of us could deny the connection, and needed to reconnect in person. So, taking a leap of faith, Cody booked a flight over and came to stay with me for three weeks. I can still remember how hard my legs were shaking as I waited for him at the airport that morning on November 20th, 2012!
But all the fear dissipated when he scooped me up in a giant hug, as promised. That was the moment we both knew for sure that we were meant to be. Following an amazing three weeks together, we became an 'official' couple before Cody headed home. The next couple of years were pretty tough for us, doing the (extremely) long distance thing whilst I finished university and traveling back and forth between Arizona and England to see each other (5,000+ miles away!), though not nearly enough as we'd have liked.
After university, I came to stay in Arizona for around 3 months (as long as I could without a visa), and during this trip, Cody proposed to me on Thousand Steps Beach in California on the 15th of March 2014. After receiving our visa paperwork, I relocated to Arizona at the end of August that year, so Cody and I could begin our life together.
We got married on the 26th of October 2014 in an air hangar in Chandler; the perfect venue to symbolize both our long distance love journey and how we originally met by his dad being in the American Air Force. The smaller details were a fusion of British and American culture. We had a very intimate ceremony with just our close family in attendance; some who had traveled from the UK to be there. It was a perfect day for the both of us, and a huge step in our crazy journey of life together!
And now, we are about to celebrate our third wedding anniversary! Each year, on October 26th, we pull out our wedding album; reminiscing about our special day, and the magical moments that Chelsee captured.
