Its a tale as old as time… Girl meets boy on the internet. Girl flies hundreds of miles to meet Boy. Boy proposes 5 minutes after meeting girl at the airport. Girl moves hundreds of miles away from home 4 months later. Ok, so our love story is a little unique… Let me go into a little more detail…
It was February 2011. A friend was in an online chat room that we occasionally hung out in. In saunters (metaphorically of course) a cute cowboy she new. She introduced us, making sure I knew he was a cowboy, cause I have a thing for cowboys. He called me that night, I missed the first call due to cruddy reception in my basement apartment, but the message he left started off with a “Hellooooo Darrrrling” with a deep Texas twang and I melted right then and there. We ended up chatting for hours that night and hours every night after for the next 2 months.
Over Easter weekend I came to Texas for a visit. He greeted me with one heck of a kiss and a marriage proposal 5 minutes later. I said “Yes!” with no hesitation whatsoever 🙂
After a wonderful weekend together, I headed back home 🙂 3 months of packing, sorting and good-byes later I moved to Texas for good! 6 Months later we made it official and tied the knot 🙂 This week we celebrated our third anniversary! Time has pretty much flown past these last few years.In the words of Taylor Swift…
And life makes love look hard,
The stakes are high,
The waters rough,
But this love is ours
