Because it’s almost Valentine’s Day and I am a little bit obsessed biased with my own love story, I figured I would share it with you all today! Cheesy? I don’t care.
|An oldy, but goody in the photo department!|
Meet Dane.He’s the main man around these parts and he’ll never admit it, but he loves this blog. How we met is kind of a fairytale and sometimes I still don’t believe it worked out the way it did. Sometimes fate has a way of stepping into your life exactly when you need it most.We were introduced through a mutual friend who lives in our same hometown right before Dane shipped off to Army Ranger School. By “introduced” I mean, = our friend knew we would be a perfect match and gave Dane my phone number. He admits to this day he wasn’t even going to call me! Our first “date” was on the phone on New Years Eve. At the time, we were both living in different cities, so the phone was our only option!We talked for ONE day before he left to become a Ranger and oh yeah–he had no access to a cell phone, e-mail, or the internet.
Dane proposed on January 3, 2013.You can read my story on our engagement here.
And you can read Dane’s side of the story here.
(For the record, he’s a really good sport and also knows that I can only ever be on the left side for fear of my lazy eye making an appearance.)
It’s not the life plan I had written out for myself…it’s so much better.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
