So for those of you interested here is the scoop.
In 2005 Phil and I both had myspace accounts. We connected on myspace and began sending e-mails to each other. Then about a month later we talked on the phone. In November we hung out for the first time and went to the mall and walked around. A few days later he invited me to one of his bowling nights. We clicked right away but he wasn't sure he wanted a girlfriend because four months before he had gotten out of a terrible relationship. He had been dating a girl with mental issues who tried to trap him into marriage by getting pregnant. He was just afraid to go through the hell he had just gotten away from and didn't want to make another mistake.
It was funny because there was such a strong connection between us. We hung out almost every day and feelings grew. After only a couple of months we decided to make it official. I knew I was going to marry him and I was right. 13 months after we began dating he asked my dad for his permission to ask for my hand in marriage. He even took my dad to get his opinion when he picked out my engagement ring. It was so sweet.
In some ways I was shocked because after his awful dating past I thought he wouldn't want to be married but he had told me later that after getting to know me, he knew, I was the complete opposite of his ex and that he was sure I would make a great wife and a fantastic mother.
8 months after we were engaged (July, 14,2007) we were married. It was a magical day and better than what I had dreamed of my whole life. You know a guy really loves you when he stands in in front of God, friends and family and professes his love and commitment.
So that's the scoop!
We will be celebrating our 3 year wedding anniversary this July :)
