Today’s originally scheduled blog post has been put on hold until tomorrow. Because today is an incredibly special day. Today is Chad’s 40th birthday. And I have been able to spend 7 of those amazing years by his side.
My husband? He has accomplished to much. Prior to us dating, he was already a homeowner and well-established in his career. But he’s so much more than “well-established.” He is a man. A man like I had never met or known before. I met a gentle, a kind, a funny, and a caring man. And I fell in love.
I’m not certain if I have ever shared the story of how I fell in love with Chad, but I think it’s about time.
Chad + I grew up in the same hometown. We graduated from the same high school — just several years apart (cough-cough — ten). We met briefly after I graduated (I graduated with his middle sister). We laughed and had fun at a party and went our separate ways. He had a girlfriend (also a friend and fellow classmate of mine) at the time and I went back to college. We reconnected many years later, thanks to the wonders of Facebook reconnecting people (this was in the “old days” of FB! Ha!).
