When I Met My Husband!

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

emoticon Two years ago today, my husband and I met for the first time. We had talked briefly on the phone a couple of times, and sent countless emails back and forth. But June 13, 2010 was our first face-to-face meeting!

For me it was just another date, in fact, by this time I would have just as soon stayed home with a good book -- I'd been doing this for YEARS! And I'd almost decided to buy another Scotty, do a little more volunteering at the Library or somewhere, and forget the dating scene. emoticon
For George, it was all new and exciting. As a fairly new widow, he was looking forward into the exciting world of dating! emoticon and this was his first emoticon dinner date with someone. Not preturbed by the unacceptable females he had met thus far, he was looking forward to the evening! Nothing could curb his excitement!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon The evening was a success, and George knew he wanted to spend as much time as possible with this entrancing lady! So the days that followed were spent getting to know her and her dog. He wasn't looking for a girlfrend with a dog, but she had one, so that's how it was.
The summer passed along with lots of emoticon times, emoticon with the arrival of fall, George made sure the love of his life knew just how much he cared by taking her on a cruise emoticon to Nova Scotia/Canada/East Coast to see the autumn leaves!
By winter time Eve was decorating his emoticon and they were planning a emoticon for a day that would be special to them both 1-11-11, or 5ones.
So, yes, about 7 months to the day after they met, they married. So today is the 2-year anniv. of that meeting. That makes today a very special day, and a good day to celebrate!

    Cool, I had a similar story, divorced 16 years, met my DH online and while I was rafting down the Colorado River with girlfriends he hiked to the bottom on the canyon to see me! I was hooked, we got married 10/2006. It's so wonderful to have a partner in your life, congrats on your anniversary!

    LOL, so great & we have more in common..was divorced after 33 years of marraige, vowed never again, but after 5 years was lonely, so looked for a "penpal", met Bill online in Janunary of 97 & learned he was a cat lover also & after emailing for months (he lived in PA, me in TX) he flew to TX & we met in perosn & clicked even more & we were married on 10-10-97! So I guess the moral of the sotry is never say never! And yes, good day to celebrate!
