6 years ago I went on a blind date with my now husband. Is it still considered a blind date if you stalked the mess out of each other on Facebook prior to the date? I had just moved into my dorm room at UNC Chapel Hill earlier that day so I wasn't really in the mood to get made up and make awkward small talk that night, but my mom
forced me insisted that I go "to meet new people". I just knew the date would be a total waste of time. After all, he was a Division I college baseball player and we all know how they are, right? I would soon find out just how wrong I was. I didn't think it was possible, but he was 100x more handsome in person. I was smitten, filled with butterflies, and crushing hard. He dropped me off after dinner and I called my mom, telling her how amazing he was but that he seemed too good to be true. I thought for sure he would never call me again. Why would a guy like him be interested in a girl like me? When I hung up the phone, I had a message from him asking if he could take me to lunch the next day.
Fast forward 6 years. I am married to the love of my life, my very best friend, the person who defines the word "home" for me. I never knew life could be so sweet. And to think, the best is yet to come!
The first picture we ever took together… we look like babies!
Happy 6 year "dating anni" to my person. Love you more than life GWD!
