Six years ago today my life changed forever.
I was just getting in from a family vacation and Drew called me and asked if I wanted to come over. (Of course I did. I had just met the boy a few weeks prior, and I was TOTALLY smitten.)
I arrive to Drew's townhome and a big hug and smile awaited me.
I glanced over to the table and saw Sour Patch Kids and orchids (my fav. flower) waiting for me and then he went and sat on the couch. He patted the seat next to him and naturally, I go sit next to him. We talked and flirted and talked some more. Then Drew leans in and kisses me.
He came away from our kiss and looks at me straight in the eyes and says, "Shalyn, Will you be my girlfriend?"
I nodded yes and then smothered him in more kisses
That night I will always remember.
SIX years with this man and I couldn't be any happier. We've been through a lot together and I really feel like I fall in love with him more and more and MORE every day. I know this is really corny, but y'all...the man is my freaking muffin.
All I can do today is just Thank God for bringing us together and thank him some more.
June 27th 2006 will be a day that I will always ALWAYS hold near and dear to my heart. It was the beginning of a life long journey with the man of my dreams.
And here we are...married, in love, and with a baby on the way.
JUST JOKING ABOUT THAT LAST PART. I just had to...as I was writing that sentence it just sounded right...but OH so wrong. Don't hate me. Yes, I realize that karma will come back and bite me in the butt. HAHA. (No Mom, I am not preggo yet!)
ANYWAYS, now that I'm done being all mushy and MEAN (<----Sorrryyyy) I leave for California today. I hope I will be able to have some fun but I have so much work to do so hopefully I can be productive on a plane. We shall see.
Happy Wednesday love bugs! MUUUUUUUUUUUAH! Oh, and if you can...please pray for me. Planes and I don't really like each other so much...and well, I'm just super nervous to be traveling by myself. :) Please and thank you!? :)
