So, our courtship began. Our first date was a different first date than most. I met him at our supercenter, and we visited the new supercenter that had been built across town. Romantic, huh? We spent a whole lot of time together while we were dating. Besides the fact that we worked together, we saw each other before and after work and on our days off. In July of 2004, we spent some time apart. We had a "lover's" spat, and didn't really talk for about a week. But we both missed each other so much that we ended up back together. I couldn't have been happier. You know that saying, "you don't know what you got 'til it's gone"? Well, I didn't know, or maybe I did, but had taken it for granted.
In September 2004, we decided we wanted to get married. One night after we got off work, I hopped in CLD's truck and he drove me back to the parking spot where we had talked the first night we met. Then and there, he proposed to me! He didn't have a ring, but I didn't care! I was getting married! It didn't take long for me to share the news with everyone. We set our date for May 7, 2005.
The rest of the story tomorrow!
