Four Years

Four years ago today was the first time I laid my eyes on my husband. You know that whole love at first site thing? Well I don't know how I feel about that, but I do remember totally wanting to befriend this kid. Remember I was anti-boyfriends at this time? I just was loving the fact that he was a foreigner and that I knew his country of origin well!

Anyways, there we were, a bunch of college students together for a weekend for a Campus Catholics retreat in the north Georgia mountains. My friendly, outgoing self told him that we should be partners in a card game against two other people that I can't remember or picture their faces for the life of me. The subsequent conversations and memories from that weekend (both with and without him) were amazing.

A little over a month later we would go on our first date after much back and forth about whether we should pursue a relationship or not.  And now, this man is my husband. My very best friend, the absolute smartest person I know, and whom I semi-jokingly call the "most interesting man in the world."

God is good.

I love you, husband.
Always, M.
