I have had the pleasure of being married to Paul for 4 years today. Some of you know our story and some do not. Those of you that don’t, you need to know.
At the age of 14 ( Paul was 17 ) I met Paul at Wal-Mart. He worked there in the Healthy and Beauty department ( yes, makeup and tampons ). At this age I was conceited and full of myself. I visited Wal-mart every week with my mom and of course visited the healthy and beauty section. One day Paul decided to ask my mom if he could speak to me. He and I became friends, sort of. He liked me and I liked his musical skills. He sang just like Dave Matthews who I just happened to be in love with. He also was older, SCORE! He approached me one day and wanted to date me. Being the completely awesome person I was at that time my response was, “You’re too skinny, so no”. Needless to say we didn’t hang out much after that.
Years later I went to a local bar with a guy friend. I sat down to enjoy the music and have a drink only to look up and see an adorable face with a nightingale voice… Yup, you guessed it, it was Paul. I was smitten. He kept giving me these eyes that just made me fall harder and harder for him. I knew he shouldn’t be nice to me after the way I’d treated him, luckily though he had mercy. I facebooked him that night and we started talking again.
We decided to start dating one day after spending a solid week together and lots of deep conversation. Deep down I wondered how he would be with my daughter since he was not used to a child around. He blew my mind needless to say. He was the most perfect father I could have ever asked for for my daughter. He showed her love just like she was his own flesh and blood. God really blessed me.. in so many ways with this man!
I can’t wait to share the rest of my life with Paul and all his awesomeness.
He’s the perfect Father, Husband, Provider, and man that I know!
