I am linking up with Chrissy, at Buzzing with Ms. B., for "How'd you meet your hunny?"
We actually were in the same kindergarten class. I was in love with another boy at the time. :) We went to different elementary schools after that. We met back up in Marching Band Camp...I know! I know!
We dated a little in 10th grade and then I broke up with him when we came back after the summer. I had gotten my braces off and he DID NOT notice!
So... I did what any good ex-girlfriend would do... I got him together with one of my best friends. (They dated for over 4 years!) The joke is, we would get together with his girlfriend and whoever I was dating at the time. (He thinks it was way too many boys!)
We graduated, went to college, and found each other at the same college swim meet. We got to talk for a little bit, then my coach yelled at me to get up on the blocks. :) It was my event.
We said our goodbyes and went back to our colleges. When he got back, he told his roommate that he was going to marry me! :)
We talked a little on the phone that semester then we started lifeguarding together that summer. We've been together ever since.
Here we are this past summer at a Phish concert.
I was thinking about how long I have known him the other day. 27 years. WOW! That's a long time! That's not even counting from kindergarten! We will be married for 18 years this October. Three kids, two dogs, two cats, and nine chickens later...
I wouldn't change a thing!
Have a wonderful day!
