If you are new here, I’m re-telling the story of how my fiance and I met. Here’s what you’ve missed::
I had fun the rest of the weekend. We went hiking on Saturday and made plans to eat dinner downtown before walking down the street to watch a baseball game. On our way to dinner that night he sweetly asked if he could hold my hand. I had never been so excited to hold someone’s hand. After the game we walked hand in hand through a nearby park before he walked me back to my hotel. And from there began the anticipation of when we would have our first kiss.
On Sunday morning we went to church before he had to take me to the airport. His church was a lot like mine in Nashville so I already knew I would love it. I met a few people that he knew there before we had to hop in the car and make our way to the airport. There wasn’t a kiss that weekend, but as I was sitting in the terminal waiting to board, I had a giant smile on my face. It almost felt surreal. How did I meet such a great guy online?
From there the trips became more frequent. He came down to Nashville in mid-June. During that trip he met my friends and parents and he got the seal of approval from everyone that I expected. We also had our first kiss during the airport drop-off.
We both had busy schedules, but we starting talking on the phone nearly every night, sometimes several hours at a time. I looked forward to his phone calls and text messages throughout the day.
I had a few days off around the 4th of July so I decided to go back up to Greenville and make it a long weekend. We basically spent close to 6 days straight together, minus one day when he had to go into work. I had so much fun. We didn’t get tired of each other and I genuinely enjoyed spending every minute with him.
It was during this weekend that he asked me to be his girlfriend, and I of course said yes. As we headed to the airport at the end of the trip, instead of being excited about the next time I would get to see him, I was really sad. I didn’t want to leave.
I could tell I was falling for him. But, my feelings would be completely solidified in a few short weeks when I received some sad news.
To be continued…
