Thankful - Week 3

I am thankful for Bryan.
He showed me true love.
5 Things I Loooooove About Bryan:
1. He still remembers our special eye-catching moment in which we both knew.
2. He mops because he knows I hate it.
3. He loves my curves even when I don't.
4. He is the best daddy EVER!
5. He loves my family - even the large, loud, and craziness it includes.

Here is Our Story:

In high school and into college (way too early, I think) I had this pretty serious relationship. It started out more one-sided...meaning he was WAY more into me. 3 years later, it was flipped and then he left. I thought the world was ending...little did I know it was the BEST thing that ever happened!

A couple months later, my friend Ashley Scardefield set me up with my future husband. She was friends with this guy Brad. He had a single friend, she had a single see where I'm going with this? Well, they wanted to set us up. Have you ever been on a blind date? I have - and I'm not too fond of them!

Well...we set a date...a double date. Really, it was more a date for Bryan and me and a "friend" date with Ashley and Brad. The day of the date...I really didn't want to go. I was hanging out with my cousin Robin and we got word that her brother John hurt his eye and was at the ER. We went to the ER to wait with him. Yippee (not yippee for the injury) but yippee, I was off the hook - I cancelled the date...or, I really no showed. I guess maybe you'd call it - stood up Bryan. Don't worry, he had his friends's not like I stood him up all by himself.


Well...about a month later - Ashley tried again. Bryan was having some friends over and they invited us. Can you believe I was even invited? Now that I think about it...I wasn't invited, Ashley was.

So we went.

The intro was a bit awkward - it would have to be....I stood him up remember. But, we had fun. He was fun, his friends were fun and we really hit it off.

Do you believe in love at first sight? I don't....sounds bad, right - but, I don't. But....I will say this - Bryan and I had this moment at his house that night when we both looked at each other and smiled. It was special. And...we BOTH still remember that to this day. That is about as close as you can get to love at first sight.

The rest is history.

I love you babe!!
