- Wedding: September 2011
Some background. Fiance and I met in 1998 when he was a high school student and I was the assistant athletic director at his high school (no, nothing happened back then). I am 11 years older than him. I left work to have my second child, was a stay-at-home mom and later divorced.
Throughout the years, we would run into each other here and there (both still lived in the same town), and we would always catch up. The summer of 2008, I ran into him at a bar in our town and we talked for awhile and things were just “different.” There were sparks and interests there that weren’t there before – he was a grown man and I liked who he had become. It was time to leave and I told him I needed to go, my ride was leaving. He asked if he could come with me, and I insisted that he couldn’t. He finally grabbed my face and gave me a long, passionate kiss (it was amazing) and then as he left to leave with this friends, he yelled back, “Call me” and he was gone.
We laugh about it now because how in the world was I supposed to “call him?” I knew his name, knew where he lived but the phone company didn’t have a listing for him. I knew he lived with some of his friends but I couldn’t find a home listing for any of them. There was no way to find out his cell phone number either. Call me … HOW?!
I eventually tracked him down through email because he works for the same large insurance company that several of my friends work for. He recounts to this day the feelings he had when he saw an email from me pop up. Of course my first sentence was something like, “You told me to call you, but I have no idea how to get in touch with you. I hope you don’t mind that I’m emailing you.” He didn’t mind at all and the rest is history.
So I’m shopping today and find this adorable pair of panties at Victoria’s Secret and my gosh, they say, “Call Me” on them. I bought them, of course, and now I’m trying to figure out the neatest way to present them.
Do I just wear them for Valentine’s Day? Get photos taken in them and present them to him before his bachelorette party? Get photos taken in them and present them to him before the wedding? Wear them on our wedding day (not until September 17, 2011)? Wrap them as a gift and give them to him?
I would really love some ideas for these – there is potential here to make it a perfect gift.
