My Love Story

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Back in 1997, I was being dragged (and I do mean dragged) by a group of friends to see the re-release of Star Wars. There were probably about 15 of us going and amongst that group of friends, was husbands younger brother. So I showed up to the theater and WOWIE who was that hunk of a man standing there with all my friends? Apparently, that night husband made a last minute decision to tag along. Fate? I immediately started scheming as to how I was going sit by him. Come to find out, he was also scheming. I enlisted the help of a girlfriend or two and got to sit next to him. It was an "oops I guess there are no other seats left" kinda thing. I had no idea what I was watching, but it turned out to be the best movie ever!

I was always getting little love letters or flowers from him and quickly fell hopelessly in love.  About 7 months later, he took me up to the top of a hill with a gorgeous view, at sunset, got down on one knee and proposed! (I have it on video, so I'll share the one day)

We spent the first 7 years of marriage having fun, traveling and going to U2 concerts. We've laughed a lot, cried a bit, and seen each other with the worst bed head imaginable. One Great Dane and two kids later, he is still my very best friend in the whole world and I couldn't live without him.  Love you mucho honey!

Pass it on and share your love story on this Valentines Day.  Let me know if you do cause I'd love to read.
