Who knew that some years ago I would walk into a coffee shop after senior exams and find my husband? It was a packed house, so Gregory asked a mutual friend if he could join our table. And the conversation didn't stop until late into the night. Yes, it was a meet-cute. For weeks he asked me out but I consistently said, "no." He wasn't my type (whatever that means). Finally, one morning I woke and literally said aloud "oh, I love him," and the words seemed wonderful and bizarre all at the same time because frankly I didn't see it coming. We dated for 6 months and then were engaged; "Too fast," some said but I wouldn't have it any other way. We were married 4 years ago this month and our relationship has been exhilarating, frustrating, and as unimaginable as it was on the very first day.
Happy Anniversary, darling!
Isn't he handsome?
