Veronica and Sam
"He pulled a rose off the bush by his door and it turned out to be my absolute favorite color."
So here we go: May 27th and I see Sam's photo on the home page - y'know, in that group of 3 'Quickmatch' photos, or Quiver, or whatever you call it. I'm a forward type of gal, so I email him and tell him I like that he's a great dad and has amazing calves. He emailed me back right away (one of those 'disbelief' emails - couldn't believe I was well-adjusted and attractive and all that). Completely tired of the bullshit, I told him that I was free that night if he wanted to join me for dinner. On his way out the door he pulled a rose off the bush by his door and it turned out to be my absolute favorite color. WIN!
Anyway, things obviously worked out because I moved in on July 15th, we got engaged August 15th, and we have the wedding date set for June 27th of next year. And names picked out for our second kid (because his son, Ethan, will always be 'our' first).
So here we are, just after Thanksgiving and it's our 'six-monthiversary.' And that rose by the front door is still blooming, somehow.
