Boy Meets Girl

Kelly's Korner: How I Met My Husband


Ours is a typical love story... It started in ninth grade (1999)...

Boy meets girl. Girl falls for boy. Boy breaks up with girl via instant messenger because he "wants to be single for the summer." Girl obsessses over boy for next three years. Girl asks boy to MANY high school dances. Boy always says no.

Fast forward... senior year (2002)...

Boy (finally) agrees to date girl (again). Girl was right all along. Girl steals boy's heart and takes it five hours away to college in South Carolina. Boy becomes very familiar with the highway... And, falls in love with girl.

June 2007...

Boy and girl say "I do" and live happily ever after...

What? Not so typical?

Haha. Jeff and I have been together for almost ten years now, and I've known him since I was fourteen. He is my best friend and PERFECT match; but, neither of us EVER would have guessed that when we were going to high school dances and football games. (Honestly, I'm pretty positive most of our friends and family members wouldn't have either.) Thankfully, ours is a story of 2nd chances... Of God's grace protecting and preparing us for each other all along. (Read more here.)

And now, in much more beautiful words than I could ever come up with, here is the video from our Rehearsal Dinner set to Bebo Norman's song "A Page is Turned". I admit this is a little corny, but the words are so special to me because they really tell "our story" so well -- even down to the part about him proposing high upon a mountain (Deer Valley, Utah). The video is about five minutes long, so turn up the volume and enjoy!

Obviously, a lot of things have changed since we first met --- like, for example, Jeff had A LOT more hair and I would NEVER post a picture of me in a bathing suit for all to see --- but, he still makes me the happiest girl EVER! We are truly blessed.

  6. Dang, instant messenger? That gives me hope. Liz Kelly broke up with me this same way in the ninth grade. I am still holding out for her to come back around. I think Henry David Thoreau said it best "God bless the broken road that led me straight to you."
