I write a little fan fiction sometimes, lately its been Antonio Banderas film characters lol. I need to get into my idea in order for NaNoWriMo in November so I am ready when it begins. I want to finish a little earlier than I did last year if possible.

Sending good vibes for your writing~

Unfortunately, I am still plugging away at it, very very slowly.

I am still finishing up a fanfic first - I have half a chapter to write still and it is kicking my bottom.

CJ, sorry I am just seeing this right now. I was kind of MIA during the summer here. When they changed how Spark Teams were I lost track of some of my teams as well. I think I am back at it pretty nicely.

I'd be curious to read your novel when you finish, feel free to pilfer any of my ideas lol!

MYAKAYAH - I am so glad to see that a marriage can begin on an airplane, as in the novel I am writing, that happens!

MAMAOF32013 - my dd met her boyfriend during high school (not the same one, but through a mutual friend). They have now been seeing each other for 4 years! I wonder ...

Well, we met on an airplane, I had the window, he the aisle and nobody was in between us. I saw him checking me out but I ignored him even though I thought he was quite good looking. (I had been divorced for about 2 years but I wasn't looking for a man.) Finally I got up and went to the restroom and stretched my legs and when I came back he spoke to me. He asked me if I was married or had a boyfriend and I asked him seriously why did he want to know. He said it was because he was certain we should be together. I must of looked at him like he was insane but I laughed finally. He said he said that because he was interested in seeing if I knew how to smile. I said I do its just that I am a serious person is all. We were headed to the same place and when he wasn't in meetings we spent some time together and we figured out there was a huge attraction there between us. He let me know he was getting a divorce from his wife and had 2 young children. I let him know I was divorced and had no children. We lived on opposite sides of the country but we kept in touch after we left one another.

Long story short, my brother lived in the same city he did and I moved here and we reconnected after I bought my house. I called him and said I lived in the same city as he did and explained about why I moved here. He came to my house about a week after I moved in and he said we were going to be together now so we could stop fooling ourselves that we didn't love one another since we fell in love when we first met. So we got married last Christmas after knowing one another for about 7 years total.

We don't have any children together, he would like one together but I've always been honest and said I don't want to go through the infant and toddler stage. When we married his 2 were older and I am good with his two :)~

What's really cute (and terrifying) is our youngest has said the same thing about one our friends daughters. They are completely adorable together. She doesn't know yet that he adores her, but oh how my boy has loved her since day one. "Mama, I am going to marry her and take good care of her one day!" As I watch them together I see so much of James and I at their age in them. One Sunday after church the two families went to breakfast together. Mid-meal the little girl's Mom tells me to look down the table. The little girl had taken Noah's plate and was cutting up his pancakes for him. It wasn't that he couldn't, but that she wanted to do it for him. This past Sunday we stayed for all three services at Church (it was a serving week), but I walked with her Mom to pick her up from her class. When she saw me she called for Noah. I told her he wasn't going and she pouted and said "Please! He can come back to class after I leave!" I think she adores him too. Who knows what will happen.

Grace and Peace,
Teri

We were 12. He was the new boy at our super small school. A friend told me I needed to meet the new boy. Honestly I don't know I hadn't met him yet since our school was so tiny. We became fast friends, best friends. We were pretty much never apart after that. I later found out that on the day he met me he told a friend "I am going to marry that girl one day!" That day was (yikes) 22 years ago. We got married June 30,2001. We have two sons.

Grace and Peace,
Teri

I met my husband in a bar, he was there with his friends and I was there with mine and the two groups kinda became one. It was what I thought would just be a one night stand. emoticon Then about a week later he called and asked me out, to this day I don't know how he got my number. Anyhow that was 12 years ago, we have been married 11 years and have 3 beautiful girls. emoticon

First met my husband in 7th grade. In our yearbook, I wrote "Cutie" over his picture! Went to a movie together our Jr. year in high school and held hands but didn't date until our senior year. 5 year later we got married. Seventeen years later we are still going strong.

Your day is what you make it, so why not make it a GREAT one?

My husband and I met in 2004. We were both active in our local music scene and I played guitar in a metal band and my husband would always come to my shows. He was SO SHY at first to the point that I didnt even think he liked me. He would wait until he got home and then email me saying how awesome he thought I was, etc lol. I knew I wanted to marry him after only a few months of dating. I just knew he was the one. He still looks at me with such love and adoration. I am so blessed. He is incredible and my complete soulmate. We were married Halloween of 2009. No children as of yet but we decided yesterday actually to stop the pill and whatever happens happens! I am hoping to get preggers sooner than later! :)

Hello all!

My husband and I have been married for 6+ years, 7 in March. We have been together for 11+. We met in college, in the cafeteria. His group of friends flirted with my group of friends and we gravitated to each other.

I had two children when we met, and we have since had 2. emoticon

We met nonlinear at a local area. I moved to the town with my first husband who left me and all my family was half way across the country. I decided to stay and start college. I had three kids already and was just looking for local friends but all night phone calls and his kindness won me over. It was a long time after he proposed before we married because I was somewhat timid.

The possibilities always outnumber the problems.

I met him when I was younger, my sister dated his best friend, then again when i was 18. I was the hiring manager at a retail store. I hired him, then a few months later he was let go due to cutbacks and we started dating a few days after that. 3 years later our first child was born!

He was very supportive of me and very proud when I graduated. He was great during my "meltdowns". I had a couple of "it's too much I can't do this I should just quit moments". I a crier and although he freaks out a bit when I start crying for no apparent reason he handles it very well.

That is wonderful support! You are blessed. I am too - I went back to school when our kids were pre-teens and teens, and my dh was there for me - I couldn't have done my papers and exams without him handling the house and the kid's stuff when I was busy.

And I re-read my last post. It was supposed to say, when YOU were in college! *sheesh* I've gotta proofread better, lol!

There wasn;t much discussion over where would live. I planned of living in Australia and he sort of did too but under circumstances we ended up in The Netherlands.

We were kind of Internet love that bloomed into something real once we met each other in real. There used to be a social network called Bolt. Its just like Facebook was just a little different. We lived worlds apart. Him in Europe and Me in Australia. But after 8 months of having an online relationship (included phone calls and letters) He came to visit me, It was all love at sight. The year after we got married and we have 3 children now. We live in Europe. Been together for 9 years married for almost 7.

We met on a blind date through a mutal friend. We just hung out had dinner and that was it. I was a senior in hs in 2004 and he was already in college. My house burnt down a few months later and I went through a really rough time in my life and broke up with him. We didnt speak for 2 yrs until his friend tried hooking up with me. I called him to find out how this friend got my number and we started being friends again. He had a gf at that time but they were all trying to get us together (including his gf). I started getting those feelings back for him and after they broke up we started dating again. We were on again and off again bc I worked 80 hrs a week. When i wasnt working I was sleeping. not much time for a life. We were sitting with a friend of his talking about how he bought things for his ex while they were dating from tiffanys and I made the comment that the only thing that mattered was the ring on the finger. A few weeks later he proposed and almost 2 months after that we married. Didn't have a wedding just went to the courthouse as I was prego when we got married. Found out the next day I was about 8 weeks prego. His parents are very traditional so they werent so happy when they found out he was married and having a baby. We married on March 31, 2008 and had our first and only child so far on Dec. 3, 2008. I truly believe that we were meant to be with each other and god has a plan for everyone!

Funny thing is I knew "he was the one" after about a month. I told him this. His face was priceless. His eyes got all big and panicky. I said I don't mean tomorrow but we will be married.

I met my husband on a blind date. A mutual friend fixed us up. I hate blind dates an usually don't go on them but the friend is the type that wouldn't leave me alone unless I said yes. So I did I figured I'd at least get dinner and a movie out of it. We were married a year later!

We have no children together but he had three from a previous marriage. They were teenagers when we married and living with him. They are all grown now and have gave me 8 awesome grandchildren.

Hi team, my name is Erica. I met my husband when my step dad asked him to help me move. He was so cute! I kept telling my step dad to tell him to ask me out for drinks...well, he didn't - but I saw him in Barnes and Noble 3 months later and called him by the wrong name! He went out with me anyway and we've been together ever since. emoticon .
We were married in February 2010 and it has been the best time of my life! No kiddos (we just want to enjoy each other) but we do have 2 gorgeous, spoiled rotten pups.

Ive been with my husband since I was 17 and he was 19. I started my freshman year at NC A&T State University in 2004 and he was in his junior year at Shaw University that was about a hour away. It was my first day of class but he classes didnt start for antoher week. I was hanging with this girl that I knew from where I was from, which was only 30 minutes down the highway. Although we had been in school together since middle school, I knew her and she knew me but we never hung together. Any who, she tells me her best friend was coming to see her and Im like okay next thing I know this she walks over to this car and I couldnt really see the person inside. She's in the car for about 10 minute then she calls me and the other 3 girls I was with over to the car. She introduces everyone to her best friend which is a tall handsome lightskin cleancut guy. So I am little shy but my best friend also attended the university and she's just talking her head off. My friend (his best friend) was sitting on the passenger side of the car with the door open and I am standing by her. My husband was sitting in the drivers seat with the door open. My best friend asked him was he short and he was like no. I leaned down to look in the car to get a better look and he's like, you have some pretty eyes. Im said, Thank you but Im blushing. I give my friend (his best friend) the eye like...mmmm mmmm mmmm...lol! He finally gets out the car and comes over to me to ask me if I had a boyfriend and I told him I was single and he said....wait for it.....Well we're gonna work on making you mine. OMG I couldve fainted I was so bothered...lol! I told him after we had been together for a while that he didnt know but I was already his after he said that to me. He told me that he asked his friend to hook him up with one of her girls and she was like I already know which one you are going to like. So here we are we have been going strong for 7 years. We got married in 2009 and we have 2 beautiful children. They all are my everything. I am a stay at home mom currently and have been since we relocated to Indianapolis from NC for my husbands job.

August 2005 I was a Marine stationed in NC and she was a bartender/waitress at the local Applebees. I would go and grab lunch from the car side to go. One day I'm in the parking lot waiting for my order and the gorgeous woman comes up to my truck. I couldn't take my eyes away, I mean she was HOT!! I was all kinds of stupid, dropped the clipboard and fumbled everything and she laughed at me. As she was walking back inside I backed out and was just staring as hard as I could, of course she busted me twice and I almost hit the building. I went back that night (actually pulled rank and made another Marine go with me!!). She was still there and she knew I was watching but she ended up sneaking out the side door. So I followed (and yes I did feel like a stalker at that moment) and got her number. I've been in love with her since. We have three beautiful children.

I was working a second job doing night shifts at a nursing home from 11pm - 7am. One night, I went in early to wrap up some paperwork. I was sitting in the dining room going over stuff when I heard a woman talking about a trip to Vegas she'd just returned from. I looked up and discovered two things: the love of my life, and that love at first sight really happens.

That was 1989. This September will be our 20th wedding anniversary.

Those who say it can't be done are usually interrupted by those already doing it.

My best friend at the time introduced Kevin and I back in 1998, they worked together and I didnt realize it was a setup until afterwards lol She said she thought it would of made me nervous, which it would have. I am glad though because we just celebrated our 13th year together and he is the love of my life. We have 3 children together emoticon We have been losing weight together for a few years now, he is at a 250ish pound loss and I am at a 90ish pound loss.

My wife was a student in a class that I was teaching as a grad student. At the time, we were both in poor relationships and so we bonded over talking each other out of them. We started getting together more frequently over summer vacation and eventually one thing led to another. We've been married 6 years now and currently have 6 month old twins whom we adore.

My husband and I met online...He's in the Air Force and was stationed in Japan at the time...He sent me a message with questions (more like a survey on things that I like/dislike)...he said it's his way of knowing if we're compatible or not...After 3 months of webcam dates and talking on the phone, he decided to fly to California to meet me in person...that same month, he proposed to me, we got married, and I got pregnant.. We'd been married for 2 1/2 years now and have a beautiful baby girl..

Congratulations on the acreage! All the best with the move.

What is a 'meetup' group?

I met my husband in 2007 at a meetup group. We got married last July. No children, but a cat and a guinea pig. We just bought an acreage and are moving in this week! :)

Peace & Blessings!
