Did you ever....

Write a really long and whiny pity party post and then decide to just get over yourself and not post it? Yeah, me either.

So.....my sweet bloggie buddy Yvonne asks

How did you and hubby meet? We met through a mutual friend. Well, to be honest I was kind of sort of dating the friend. It was sooooooo not serious. I'll never forget the night we met. I thought to myself, "Wow, I have just met someone that is going to be a great friend"

Little did I know that the "friend" that introduced us was a total major jerk and that I would turn to Tim to talk about how he treated me and I would fall head over heels in love. I invited him to my 20th birthday party and we stayed up into the wee hours talking and talking. The rest was history. We have rarely been apart since.

We have literally grown up together. It hasn't always been easy but it has always been worth it. Way more good than bad. This May we will celebrate our 15th year together. I would say that we have beaten some odds there.

Oh, and I was right about him being a great friend. In fact, he is my best friend in the whole world. I can always count on him to be there for me. He's seen me at my best and at my worst and remarkably, he's still here. He is the most forgiving and loving person that I've ever met. I don't know what I did to deserve him but I'm awfully glad I did it.

What was your favorite year in school and why? I had a blast all through high school. I went to a very small school. I graduated with 52 people. I had known most of these people since 2nd grade. Everyone knew everyone. I had a great group of friends. I was in band and I was a cheerleader and loved everything about it. It was great!

What a neat story about how you and your dear Tim met! It sounds like you guys have a relationship that has (and WILL!) stand the test of time! :)

Funny, my wife was the girl friend of my best friend when we met. He is no longer my friend.

I didn't know how you guys met - how lovely!

I'm so glad you answered the questions. What a wonderful story. Nothing better than friends at first. Congratulations on 15 years together.

Wow, that is one small high school. It's great that you have such wonderful memories of that experience.

Hope all is well.

Add me to Lee's (and your) club!

I was the girlfriend of one of my husbands friends when we met.

We're all still friends though.

I'm giggling at your comment header! I love 'how we met' stories! We're hitting 10 years this April and I feel like we've really 'grown up' together too.
