The End. (and The Beginning.)

As partially evidenced by the past three days of "Dates from Hell", I couldn't ask for a better match for me than Brian.

We both "found" each other about the same time online... had stumbled across each other's profiles, and I felt there was something special about him. Not only did he fit in that top 2%, he exceeded all of my other initial expectations. Here was a guy, perfect for me in every way... just slightly older than me, never married, no children, recent convert, and active church member, etc. His profile was free of grammatical errors, and he didn't brag about the one time he went skydiving being his current full-time hobby. He had a great sense of humor, and his personality seemed like it would mesh with mine. At the time, I wasn't a paying member, so I pretty much had to wait for him to contact me, and then follow my clues to my offsite e-mail address. Lucky for me, he's a pretty smart boy!

I never imagined that I could know my husband for such a short while before marrying him, and that I would be 100% content with that. In fact, I used to make fun of all those couples I heard about that married so quickly, and thought that would never be the route I would take. Those 6 weeks we spent before meeting face-to-face proved invaluable, and I truly felt like I knew him before I saw him. In my heart, I knew he was being honest with me in every way, and genuinely wanted to get to know me better. After that, absence does make the heart grow fonder, and we "courted" long-distance for about as long as we could handle it. Like they say, when you know, you know!

While we've endured our share of trials and tribulations in the short 34 months we've been married, there hasn't been a day I haven't smiled and laughed with the love of my life. The long journey to find him, and the traumatizing dating experiences I endured, were most certainly worth it.

I know it's sometimes trite to blather on and on about how much you love your spouse on your blog, but have you met him?? He's amazing!

I love you, Brian, and I can't wait to see you tomorrow!!
XOXO

Awwwwww, that's awesome. I am so glad you waited for Prince Charming instead of settling for a zoo-boy.

You are so cute together :)
