- Wedding: February 2014
I have wanted to post my love story on the bee forever now, so here it goes.
I first met my Fiance in my parents driveway. He is my brothers best friend. I was, at the time, a server in a restaraunt and I went outside to leave for work, but I quickly wanted to ask my dad and brother about how much new tires on my car would cost. I didn’t know him a the time, but knowing what I know now, I would have made sure he wasn’t there when I asked! When it comes to cars, my Fiance can talk for hours and hours (trust me, I’ve seen him do it). So he started with a long winded response and I rudely told him to move, I had to leave. Lol.
So flash forward 6 months, I had went through this horrible break-up and was starting to re-connect with my friends. I went out with a big group of my friends (brother and I have a LOT of mutual friends) and he was there. I spent all night flirting with him :). I challenged him to a game of bowling, still not really knowing him, and it turns out he was a high school all-star bowler. He scored over 200, I scored just over 40. It was so fun, though.
The next day I connected with him on facebook and we started “talking”. In the beginning we took things really slow. We really got to know each other before deciding to date.
We have been together just over two years, and it has been as close to perfect as I think it can be. I fall in love with him more and more every day. He ALWAYS knows how to make me laugh. I’m a hot-head with a loose temper, he is very laid-back and doesn’t get mad easily. I always say “he keeps me grounded, I keep him young”.
He took me to a Christmas lights show to propose. We had gone the year before and got some great pictures. This time we went with a large group. My closest friends and immediately family all went, and I was having a great time showing my nephews things. I was frustrated most of the day for a thousand different reasons, so I wasn’t having a good day lol. We all stopped at the tree we had pictures done at the year before and my friend, who is a professional photographer, wanted to take pictures of all the couples/families. I was really irritated and everyone couldn’t seem to get their life together to get a picture. Fiance and I went last, and my friend snapped a few, she said “ok, the lighting is great”, and I assumed we were done. I went to walk away and Fiance grabs both hands, takes my glove off, I instantly burst into tears. I don’t remember what all he said, but I just nodded and cried. It was opening weekend at the light show so about 40 people stopped to watch him propose, and we got this HUGE applause. It was like a movie! The best part was my 3 1/2 year old nephew asking why I was crying and I said “I get to spend the rest of my life with uncle” and he says “can I spend my life with you and uncle?”
Sorry it was long, but I just wanted to tell it 🙂
