I was driving along today and realized that my sweet husband and I met and fell in love 12 years ago this month. It's a lovely story, one that made me believe in love at first sight, so I thought I'd share it here.
A friend of mine had a crush on a man that worked at a store and wanted to show me who he was, so we went window shopping. I was immediately smitten and the chemistry was obvious. I was panicking tho! I didn't know if this was "her" man or not. I talked with him for ages, our eyes locked the entire time. Finally it was time to go, and as soon as we were out of ear shot I asked if that was him. She said no - thank god! and I said right away, "Good cause I could marry that man".
From that day on I've believed in "Love at first sight" with all of my smitten heart.
And recently my husband confessed that on that day - seconds before I was declaring my plans to marry him, he had peaked his head out the door to watch me walk away :)
This time of year - late fall - the feeling in the air will always remind me of the time when we were falling in love.
