5 years...

Saturday, August 23, 2014

5 years ago I moved to Chapel Hill, NC to start college at UNC. Since I was old enough to talk I dreamed of going to school here. Little did I know how much more than just a great education I would leave with...

My family spent the whole morning moving me into my dorm. That afternoon at lunch, I got a call from a tall, blonde, extremely handsome baseball player that I had been casually Facebook chatting with over the summer. He asked if he could take me out to dinner that night. I politely declined, making up some lame excuse about having too much to do. Thankfully my mom intervened and forced encouraged me to call him back and agree to go to dinner, because "I needed to meet new people". To be quite honest, I was not in the mood for an awkward first "blind" date with a division I baseball stud that would end up going nowhere. Little did I know...

Sooo he picked me up and took me to our now favorite restaurant. I remember exactly what he was wearing, and how I couldn't take my eyes off of him... literally. He was the best looking guy I had ever seen let alone gone on a date with. I knew for sure that despite how awesome our conversation and instant connection was, that I would never hear from him again.

I got back to my dorm room and called my mom to tell her how amazing it was. She asked if I thought we would hang out again and I said, "I hope." I hung up the phone and already had a message from him: "I had such a great time tonight. Can I take you to dinner and a movie tomorrow night?" I felt like 100 butterflies were fluttering around in my heart! Of course he could take me out again tomorrow!!!

1,826 days later and he still treats me like a princess. I am not quite sure how I got so lucky, but I definitely believe that God wanted me to attend UNC for more than just the education. I left baby blue Heaven with a degree and a husband.
