I had just broken up with a fella who lived in another state. I wasn't looking for a relationship. I had just started a new job and was all about doing my very best at it! It was the job I had been waiting for, and it was just one town over instead of the hour away I had been traveling for almost 2 years.
You know how they say it comes when you least expect it?
I had been selling Mary Kay on the side, and I had had a party at my friend Laura's house, where she and her Aunt Kim suggested that I go out with their cousin Chris. They had even tried to get me to meet him the month before at a family gathering, but I bowed out at the last minute, because I had moved that day from my cute little apartment to my parents' newly bought ranch house...that was a haven of lovely 70s decor! I was not thrilled with the situation. My brothers-in-law had even offered for me to come and shower at their houses and borrow their wives clothes if I would please go meet this fella!
Actually, we had met before....my mother had been his Kindergarten teacher! But I didn't remember him. :)
Finally we did talk on the phone, and we talked for hours. We set up a date for the next weekend.
...and the rest is history...
The Lord told me while I was sitting across the table from him at Applebee's that I was going to marry him. I ignored it.
By our second date, I came home and told my cat that we were going to marry him!
Less than 2 months later we were engaged, and 9 months after that we were married!
And it all started 14 years ago this month.
On a blind date.
And I wouldn't change a thing! <3
I love you, sweetheart!! So glad I went on that blind date 14 years ago!!
