We had returned from our first vacation together about 2-weeks prior, and we had just moved into our new 2-bedroom apartment.
It was a Wednesday and we were about to tuck in for the night.
We had a little “scare” and I took a little “test.” No biggie, right?
So, the conversation went something like this:
Me: [Walking out of the bathroom, nodding] I’m definitely pregnant…
Him: [White as a ghost] Wow!
Me: [Shrugging] Are you ready for this? (I may have been asking myself this…?)
Him: [White as a ghost] Ummmm, as I’ll ever be.
We laid in bed for the next hour staring at each other, alternating between smiles and tears until we fell asleep.
We called our families the next day. I didn’t know it was going to be like that. But we did. And everyone seemed so happy for us. “We’re having a baby.”
I remember being kind of numb. Not that I didn’t want all of this eventually, but it just hit me all at once how much everything was going to change.
We weren’t even engaged at this point.
Were we going to get married?
What were we going to do about insurance?
Were we going to stay in this little apartment?
Would we be able to make enough money to support our baby?
What about us?!
He took me on a weekend getaway 10-days later and proposed to me at sunset.
He had a ring made with a diamond my mother saved for me.
He promised himself to me, and I promised myself to him.
That night was one of the most special moments of my entire life.
We I My mom and I planned our wedding in a matter of 3 months! How’s that for git er dun?
We were married on November 10, 2007 at a bed and breakfast resort in Frederick, MD.

It wasn’t perfect, but it perfection. It wasn’t sequential, but it was in our own time and way. I LOVE our story, as I said, and I could never have imagined it would become my life. Not in a million years. How lucky am I? How lucky are we all?Who has found love in the most extraordinary of ways?I’d love to hear!!
It’s when you least expect it… isn’t it? 😉
