Two years ago “We Did”. Today I would “I Do” all over again.
On our one year anniversary, I shared the story of how we meet. I still smile at the simplicity of our story. Boy sees girl (with a modern twist). Boy asks girl out. Boy and girl fall in love.
When I met Christian out for the first time ever, I honestly had no idea what to expected. I had no expectations. I was just starting a new chapter in my life, so if nothing else, I was looking forward to good company. As I drove to the Mexican restaurant, I had butterflies in my stomach. I wasn’t even sure what he looked like (Christian photographs “weird” – he rarely looks like himself in a photos). In some of his photos he was hot. In some of his photos he looked a little dorky. (Maybe he photographs perfectly. I do think my husband is hot, but he is also a little dorky!) When I pulled into the parking lot that evening, he was standing in front of the doors waiting for me.
“I love him”
Those three words fell out of mouth. They came out of no where. I actually laughed at myself after I said them. What in the world was I thinking?
Although I wasn’t in love with him yet (that surfaced ten minutes into our conversation), there was something about him that sent me over the moon. As we stared at each other over a beer and a margarita glass and talked about every possible subject that night, I knew there was something about him I couldn’t walk away from. For the first time in my life, I gave into to something that felt absolutely right.
I love you Christian! I can’t wait to “I do” a hundred times more!
