I have a super sweet and disgustingly sappy story for you. If you are allergic to such things I suggest you avert your eyes and/or take a Benadryl after eating and THEN enjoy this post. You've been warned.
3 years ago on May 30th I really liked this guy that I was pretty sure liked me. He lived in Georgia and I lived in Texas, but we talked every day on the phone...because I'm so hot. Well, no, not really, it's because we were just totally into each other...but we also thought each other was hot.
After watching our favorite movie, Twister (yes, the terrible and unrealistic movie about tornadoes; don't judge) we finally got a little mushy. After some subtle hint dropping, we got into the "what are we, exactly?" conversation. He then said, "Brooke, I should tell you, I really like you a lot."
I literally started wiggling and giggling to myself while lying in my bed. Total girl moment.
You see, I kind of already knew (thanks to prayer and God letting me know some stuff) that this guy was IT for me and that this was a forever deal. So when he FINALLY came out and said he liked me, it was almost like a proposal...in my head, haha. I ecstatically, but coolly replied "I really like you a lot, too." And that was that. Now I'm married to this mensch and I am SO glad that he told me he liked me, because I cannot imagine life without him.
So, Toby, here's to 3 years of being together! I'm so happy I have a handsome, goofy, God-fearing, brilliant and loving man like you! I LIKE YOU. And love you :)
Here's some pictures to commemorate the young love memories that are filling my brain!
|Only a few weeks after the "I like you" moment :)|
|This is the "meet the family" weekend. It was great and stressful, because Toby asked for my hand in marriage without|
me even knowing it! That sly dog... :)
