Romance Week 2016: Meet Cute

Happy Valentine’s Day Week!

Commercials touting jewelry and flowers as the perfect gift for your love have pervaded the airways here recently. Personally, I don’t go for that kind of stuff.
Don’t get me wrong – I’ve never turned down jewelry.

But romance shouldn’t be relegated to a day, it’s a lifestyle.

Anyway, thinking about Valentine’s Day naturally has me thinking about my hubs. We’ve been married 21+ years. (wowzers.)

weddingAnd a lot of people thought we wouldn’t make it 6 months. (aren’t we cute? and look at that 1990’s style scrapbooking!)

We met in July of 1994. At a bar. The Silver Bullet. He was there with friends, I was there with friends. He asked every one of my friends to dance before he got to me. We finally danced and he asked for my number. I hesitated, but jotted it down for him. It was a whirlwind romance. We’d both been married before, and talked about things more seriously and deeply than I think most young couples do, because – quite simply – neither of us wanted to go through another divorce. We were married in December of that year.

Crazy, right? (but when you know, you know.)

So . . . tell me your story. How did you and your significant other meet?
