Four years ago today, I met my best friend after attending my cousin's wedding in Oklahoma City. I cannot believe that Marty has only been in my life four short years, but they sure have been good! I saw one of my friends and her sister over the weekend and they had never heard the entire story of how we met. It's long, even at it's shortest...30 minutes. It's filled with romance, drama and lots and lots of butterflies. But, I'll save you the time and myself the energy. Marty and I met on June 4, 2005, and began dating a little over a month later. He proposed 7 months after that and we were married shortly after our one year dating anniversary. Hey, when you know...you know. And God's fingerprints were all over our story and relationship from the beginning.
I LOVE Brad Paisley's new song called "Then". Here are the lyrics.
"I remember trying not to stare the night/That I first met you, you had me mesmerized/And three weeks later in the front porch light/Taking 45 minutes just to kiss goodnight/I hadn't told you yet, but I thought I loved you then/But now you're my whole life, now you're my whole world/And I just can't believe the way I feel about you girl/Like a river meets the sea, stronger than it's ever been/We've come so far since that day and I thought I love you then."
The only difference is I DID tell Marty I loved him after only three weeks. He hadn't even said those three words, yet and being forward is SO not me, but nothing about our relationship was the "typical me".
I got him this card from Old Tom Foolery to celebrate the occasion. Isn't it hilarious? It's more hilarious if you know what a passion the man has for Taco Bell.
Today also marks my 100th post. I'm pretty sure it pales in comparision to the previously mentioned anniversary, but it is worthy of note.
Well, I hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend. I have such a fun, friend-filled weekend ahead...I CANNOT wait! I'm having dinner with Whitney tonight in OKC, breakfast with Becky in the morning and then meeting Joy so we can ride together to Arkansas. And sometime either going or coming I've got to stop and see Jacob and Amy and they're ADORABLE, new addition, Cooper. I have yet to meet the little man and shower him with gifts. Fun, fun!
