I absolutely love LOVE! In honor of MCM, I’m going to share with you the beginning of my very own “boy meets girl” true love story… in a nutshell of course. My husband Jan and I have been married for almost 1 year now, but we’ve been together as a couple for over 10 years. I know I know… “What took you guys so long to get married!?” Believe me when I say that if Jan and I could have gotten married sooner, we would have! It was all in good timing. I’ll share my wedding story at a later time. For now, here’s the story of how Jan and I became an item.
Jan and I met during our Freshman year of High School, but we didn’t really get to know one another until the start of our Junior year. We sat next to each other in our algebra II class… 5th period to be exact. Being the goofball that he is, Jan would always find ways to make me laugh. Totally disrupting my learning! But he was cute so I didn’t complain. As time went on, our friendship grew and our fun joking relationship added a new feature… flirting. As luck would have it, we also had 6th period together, so we started accompanying one another to that class. We weren’t very discrete with our flirting though, because our friends would all “oooo and awww” as we walked to class together. We even started holding hands just to get people to do a double take. It was pretty fun.
The second semester of Junior year was when the magic really happened. Jan finally got up enough courage to ask me to junior prom. Then just two days later, he walked me to my locker and asked me to be his “girl.” I was so excited! From that day on we’ve been inseparable. We went to the same college, graduated a semester apart, moved in together, and finally said our “I Dos” just this past year. We’ve been on quite the journey together.
Our love fell into place so naturally and there isn’t one thing that I would change about it. This just goes to show that love can find you at any moment and at any age; young or old. Love found me at the young age of 17 in my high school algebra class, and its been with me everyday since.
