Let me tell you a little story of how I met my boy...
December 12, 2009 , Mr. H showed up to Farrina's (which we would later find out, it's "where friends meet") with our friend Melissa for my Irving Bible Church youth leader Christmas party. Little did we know what was about to happen. I can say for sure that neither Mr. H or I were into each other right away. It wasn't until our friend's birthday celebration later that night that we actually started talking. I wasn't going to attend the party that night, but so glad I did. We were in a group photo together that would turn out to be the key to "us." Thank goodness for facebook because it was there were Mr. H remembered me through that photo and asked me to be his friend on facebook. I accepted because that's just what you do. I thought that was it with us, but on December 21, 2009, Mr. H sent me a facebook message. After a few messages back and fourth, he asked me my plans for New Year's Eve. I'm pretty sure I said things were up in the air, but actually I had no plans at all yet. I didn't want him to think I was desperate.
After Mr. H returned from his family Christmas vacation in Canada, I finally heard from him and we made our New Year's Eve plans. I was a little annoyed that we didn't make plans until December 30, but I realized later he had my number wrong. Let's just say that December 31, 2009 was one of the best nights of my life. Four of us went to a Star's hockey game and then to this restaurant nearby after to ring in the New Year. We danced with each other and talked a lot. We even shared a few New Year kisses. I loved it that Mr. H could not wait another day to see me again. I asked him what he planned to do that day and he said two things: 1. clean his apartment and 2. see me. So we officially had our first date on January 1, 2010. Quickly there after we knew what we had was special, we just clicked. We basically from that point on spent almost every day together. It's crazy how soon we knew we wanted to marry each other. It was hard to really explain to others because it seemed too good to be true...sort of like something that you only see happen in the movies. I can say without a doubt I am the luckiest girl and am so glad I found my boy!
There you have it...that is how our love story began and I am so excited to see where the Lord takes us. It's only through Him that we ended up meeting. I jokingly told Mr. H after we met that I secretly wanted a boyfriend for Christmas that year. And it turns out I got what I asked for, it was just a few days late.
I'll be sharing our proposal story coming up too. Mr. H wrote it and it's so special to me!!
Have a wonderful day!!
