today is our anniversary. we have been married 8 years today.
my husband is amazing. we met at a bowling alley on feb. 14th, 2002. we were married on feb. 7th, 2003.
the first thing i noticed about him when i met him was his eyes. he has beautiful eyes. and, he's a great hugger. and, he loves Jesus.
my roommate in college came home from work one day and said, "you've got to meet this guy i work with. he's just like you. he loves Jesus. he's happy. and, he loves kids." i was like, "okay." so she said she was going to ask him if he wanted to go on a double date on valentines day.
she came home from work the next day and said, "he says he'll have to pray about it." i was like, "WHAT?!" this is the guy for me. he's praying about it? sweet. turn on number one :) well, she goes to work and comes home again and says, he said it sounds like fun. so, on valentines day i met michael hullinger at chippewa bowling alley and then we went to steak and shake. then we talked in his car for about 3 hours. it was pretty much love at first hangout for me. time went on, and it seemed like there were a lot of periods of waiting on my end, but we did get married less than a year later so really... i must never have waited too long :)
