Love Story: Whirlwind Romance

Love Story: Whirlwind Romance

Do you believe in love at first sight? How about a love story that is a whirlwind romances? If someone told you that 1 year from now you would be married to someone you haven’t even met yet would you believe it? I know I wouldn’t have. That was before it happened to me.

I have always known what I wanted in a husband, and what I wanted in life. I knew I was ready for a commitment, and didn’t want to invest time in a relationship that wouldn’t go where I wanted.
Love Story

When I started a new job, I wasn’t looking for a relationship, I just wanted to settle in. Almost right away, I noticed Vern. He was tall, handsome, kind,and just seemed to always be standing out when I came in for the day. I found out later, that he always waited for me to come in. He loved me right from the start, but was afraid to mix work with his love life.

 

We started talking on breaks and lunch, and I was hooked. He was everything I ever wanted, right in front of me. I am not a very forward person, but I started hinting, and trying to get him to ask me out. It was agony! He would flirt with me every day, but that was it.

Love Story: Whirlwind Romance

Finally one day, I couldn’t take it anymore, and invited him to my place for coffee. I was not usually forward, but something told me to take a chance.That night, he told me he loved me. Part of me thought I should run away screaming. I mean, really? After flirting for 3 months, he loved me? Something in me just melted, and I knew I loved him too. I didn’t understand it, but I knew I was looking into the eyes of my future husband. This was December 1st. That same night, we discussed marriage, and what we wanted out of life. Everything I wanted, he wanted too. It was like a dream. On January 15, he asked me to marry him, and with no hesitation, I said yes. People were shocked, yet supportive. We were married April 27th that same year. In less than a year, we met, started dating, were engaged, and married. It was the best year of my life. Now, 11 years later, we have 5 beautiful children, and are more in love than ever. I found the man of my dreams, and listened to my heart. When you meet the right person, something in you just knows, and it is worth jumping in, and taking that chance. I am so glad I did!

Love Story: Ripping off the Band-Aid

Ripping off the Band-Aid: A love story


    Everyone has heard of a “Groupie” right? Well, let
me start this story by saying, I was not one of them. I was a
Band-Aid. What is a band-aid? A band-aid is a woman who hangs out with
a band, but is respected, and wanted before 2 am. (Unlike a groupie,
who is a last call girl, as Amee would say). Now that we have that out
of the way, let me tell you the love story between me, and my awesome
rocker husband:

Ripping off the Band-Aid: A love story

I was in high school when I first heard about him, my bestfriend’s
boyfriend had a band, and as previously mentioned, I was a band-Aid. I
love being around music, and the people that were talented enough to
make it.Friday was “Band Night” in our small town, where me and all my
friends would head to a friends garage and listen to local bands all
night. As we were getting ready (which took about 2 hours because we
were rocker girls which required lot’s of make up and hair color) my
bestfriend turned to me and said “Oh, I’m going to introduce you to
your future husband.” At the time I just laughed and said ok we will
see. Little did I know that 4 years after that, she would have been
right.
He was the “new kid” in town, a Military brat that had just moved from
a base in South Carolina, he was the bands new DJ, and he was perfect.
He was the first person I saw when I walked into the room, and the
last one I saw when I left. I was Smitten. The next few years would
not be sunshine and rainbows, but I was taught to fight for what you
wanted, so that is exactly what I did.

What my lovley friend had forgotten to mention, is that
he had a girlfriend! I was heartbroken, but I stuck close by until
they broke up, (about 6 months later) and I knew he was mine! We had a
very fast and intense relationship, full of ups, and downs. Were
things perfect? NO. What is the point of a relationship? Boring! We
moved in together with a group of friends, (We actually had 5 of us in
a 3 bedroom) and we were all big into the local music scene. Partying
every night, and sleeping all day. The fun times of being young.

Then something happened. At age 19, I found out I was
pregnant. We were not ready to be parents, but we knew we had 9 months
to figure it out! So that is what we did. We moved out of the “Party
House” and in with my parents. On May 20th, 2008 we had our little 5
lb 2 oz Miracle, named Jaiden. Things were hard, being a parent is
hard for anyone, but being a young parent is even harder! It took it’s
toll on our relationship, but we made it through even stronger than we
were before.

  People asked us all the time, “So now that you are
parents, are you going to get married” I don’t know where people get
that you must get married if you have a child, I think you should get
married if you are in love, and you are sure you want to spend the
rest of your life with that person. Plus I wanted to focus on Jaiden,
and all the joys and wonders that happen during a child’s first year
of life. So that is what we did.

   When Jaiden was a year old, we moved into our own house,
and began to feel likea real family, and then the next big milestone
in our life occurred on Valentines Day. We had planned a big
Valentines Day party with our friends that night. My husband works
night, so on Friday nights me and Jaiden would wait up for him so we
could spend some time with him, Jaiden followed him into the kitchen
and she came around the corner holding a box. a Ring box, then Brandon
appeared, on one Knee and asked me to marry him. He was planning on
doing it at the party, but he couldn’t wait. So the only people that
saw were me, him, and our daughter, and I couldn’t have asked for
anything better.

9 months later, on November 12th, 2010, I married my best
friend, my lover, my rocking man. We Celebrated with an Alice In
Wonderland themed Wedding, then hopped a plane to Jamaica to start
our new life together in style. and we lived Happily ever after.
That’s my Love Story what’s yours?

Love Story: It Happened To Me

Love Story

Here is Elizabeth’s Love Story:

I went to visit my best friend one spring day in 2008. When we pulled up in front of her house, i saw a man poking his head out the front door of her enclosed porch. Thinking it was her long time live boyfriend Mark, I said “Hi Mark!” The man turned his head and looked at me, it was no one I had ever seen before, but only one thing went through my mind when our eyes met…”There you Are.” Turned out it was her BROTHER Mark, who had been out of the state for years and she had never mentioned him to me (They had lost touch many years before, after a falling out). He told me later that day that he had the exact same reaction when he looked at me…and we were married 16 days later, we are still happily married. I never believed in love at first sight, I am was a cynic. That was until it happened to me.
