I saw this beautiful man for the first time on May 19th, 2010. No, we didn't speak to each other. Just worked out in the same room.
I met this beautiful man the next day - May 20th, 2010 - at the coffee shop I now work at. It was my last day (I took a hiatus) and it was his first time every being there. Here is a picture from the day my husband first laid his eyes on me.
[I'm on the right. I know.... it doesn't even look like me.]
We went on our first date on June 3rd.
.... We made it official by June 8th. At like 3am because we couldn't stop talking and hanging out.
We went on a hike and took our first picture EVER together at Beacon Rock. This was only hours before I met his parents for the first time....
He said those three words late in June at his cabin. Here is a picture taken moments after:
I THOUGHT he was going to propose on this day:
But he saved it until this day, which was only a few days later (September 9th, 2010):
[In disbelief - I was going to marry the man of my dreams!!!!]
We took engagement photos in October, while I was dying of illness, mind you.
We rehearsed the big day.
Then, we really did it folks. We tied that knot good and hard!!!
Tears were obviously a must.
We praised Jesus for it all and gave Him all the glory for bringing us together.
Then we told each other exactly how we felt - barely making it through.
I held that man's hands and looked at him with more love than I can even believe is allowed in my little heart. He is so perfect for me.
Then.... we partied and went to Costa Rica.
|yes, we were completely underwater. yes, it was one of the scarier moments of my life.|
The rest is history. For more on the history of how God so perfectly brought us together, you can read the page "God has a plan. And also a sense of humor."
