In honor of the day of LOVE I thought I'd share our love story :) I used to absolutely love Valentine's Day (maybe I just loved the Reeses' peanut butter hearts ;) Now, it is just another day. I make it an effort to show those I love how much they mean to me. Like those clearance'd shoes at Target I randomly brought home for J :)
Around labor day September 2008, I was invited to a BBQ at one of my co-worker's house. I ended up going, expecting to eat a hamburger and go about my business. I didn't know I was secretly being "hooked up" or that I'd meet my husband on that day. I saw Jordan..he was wearing scrubs and driving a POS car. Seriously..you could hear that car a mile away. Anyway, we actually didn't really hit it off, but we were friendly to one another. He was a total nerd; video games, computers, chemistry books- too smart for your own good type of guy. We had absolutely nothing in common, but somehow it worked. We seemed to be "good" for eachother.
We kept hanging out- a movie and dinner here and there, but I still wasn't 100% sold on becoming "official." I had been single for 2 years. I had my own apartment, job, car, friends and I was pretty content. Until we basically became inseperable. He just seemed to "fit" in my life very well, and the next thing I knew we were starting "our" life together.
We moved into our first house in February of 2009 and became engaged. and surprise! I found out I was pregnant (which sadly ended in miscarriage). We decided to change our original December Christmas wedding to a very hot June wedding.
