Hi everyone! I wanted to make my first official post since I’ve been reading for a while and it seems that Mr. S and I are finally in the waiting stage!
Our story, the semi-short version:
Mr. S and I are both mid-late twenties. We met in college through mutual friends about six years ago. Mr. S says it was love at first sight for him, but I was a little oblivious! We saw each other over the years through our mutual friends, but one of us was always dating someone else. Cue earlier this year, when I got curious about what he was up to and sent him a FB message. It turned out that we were both back in our shared hometown and we decided to meet for dinner and catch up. That somehow turned into an official date, and we’ve been together for almost eight months now.
It took me a long time to catch up with his feelings, but after that first date, we both had that “I just know” feeling. My friends like to tease me because I told them all that I was going to marry him after about two weeks of dating (and a couple glasses of wine, haha).
I’m in finance and he’s in engineering. We are slowly working on moving in together and between us, we have two dogs (a five-year-old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a 1 1/2-year-old crazypants Australian Shepard) and a big, clumsy, Garfield-type cat, who is also five. I’m sure I will share lots of photos of the three furbabies in the future. We’ve talked about marriage and a little bit about our respective timelines. I think it will be sometime in the next year, but I really don’t know when (although he says he does). I’m hoping you all can help keep me sane until then, because I am beyond excited to begin my life with Mr. S!
