It is a tale as old as time. Er, it is a tale as old as the movie version of the Nicholas Sparks book that gave us a meet-cute with a side of strawberry milkshake. (Same difference, right?) If photos of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth through the years teach one thing, it is that we should never underestimate the power of love. Or the power of time. Or the power of The Last Song.

Hemsworth and Cyrus met in 2009 while making The Last Song, and about ten years later, they tied the knot. The road leading them from the sparks (pun could not be more intended, thank you kindly) that flew on the set of The Last Song to their wedding day has not been without ebbs and flows. Cyrus and Hemsworth met, fell in love, went public with their relationship, and attended premieres and award shows together.

But then, they broke up. And then got back together. And then they got engaged. And then they broke up again. They saw other people. They reunited. They got re-engaged. And then, on Dec. 23, 2018, the couple got married in Franklin, Tenn. And on Sunday, Feb. 10, Cyrus will perform at the Grammys and we will probably see her with Hemsworth on the red carpet.

Wow, what a decade it has been for this lovely couple. And wow, has the last decade produced some lovely Cyrus and Hemsworth pictures. Let's get ready to rumble our way through some lovely nostalgia.

January 2019

The G'Day USA Gala was Cyrus and Hemsworth's first event as a married couple.

December 2018

And with that official marriage announcement, the "secret wedding" rumors that've followed this couple around for years realized there was no more work to be done here. The "secret wedding" rumors packed up their things and left for good (and probably set their sights on another unmarried celebrity couple who's just trying to mind their business and live their life).

August 2018

Just call the pop star the Barefoot Cyrus-tessa.

Oh, no big deal. They're just posing with Elton Freakin' John at Elton Freakin' John's Oscar party.

July 2017

Aw, these two.

February 2017

Gorgeous dogs, a mug of coffee, and a chill beach? Ugh, what a terrible way to spend Valentine's Day (said no one).

December 2016

Cyrus and Hemsworth broke up in 2013 and did not get back together until 2016, so uh, there is a bit of a gap in the photo timeline. Buckle up, because we're about to jump back a few years.

Cyrus went with Hemsworth to the premiere of his movie Paranoia in 2013. It was, as Us Weekly noted, their first joint red carpet appearance in over a year. Get ready to jump back another 14 months.

Remember, folks: Cyrus isn't Team Gale. As Hemsworth told Glamour in 2012, the star of Hannah Montana is Team Katniss. Atta gal, Miley.

The same month The Last Song hit theaters, they did the Oscar party thing together. This was their first public appearance as a couple.

2009... ???

Yep. Yep. Yep.

July 2009

When the 10-year challenge took the web by storm last month, Cyrus offered up this very special throwback photo from 2009.

What a decade Cyrus and Hemsworth have had together. Here's to many, many more.
