Show and Tell - How we Met

I am linking up with Momfessionals again today to discuss how we met our spouse and got engaged.

Ryan and I met in the fall of 1997 through a mutual college friend.  We often hung out at this friend’s house on the weekend.  It was not love at first sight, in fact, we were dating other people.  However, the more and more I talked to him the more I liked him.  I found myself trying to find reasons to “run into” him on campus.  Ryan is 2 years older than I am so he was officially done on campus in December and moved home.  I sent him a card wishing him luck with his student teaching and included my phone number.  He called me a few weeks later while I was recovering from a tonsillectomy! We had our first official date and we have been together ever since.  There was no romantic proposal.  We just knew from the very beginning that we would be together forever!  We were engaged in the fall of 1999 and married in 2000.    We will be celebrating 15 years this September!


First dating!
