One thing that I hardly ever talk about on Simply Rebekah is what my life was like before blogging. Mostly I share pictures, tips, or stories from my current everyday life and you rarely hear me talking about my past. Today I’m going to try something new.
Over the next several weeks I will be sharing My Love Story. Spolier Alert!!! Yesterday Nate and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. Obviously I married the guy. I hope you enjoy the journey despite knowing the outcome.
Let’s get started…
“Let’s walk around and see if we can meet some people.”
It was the start of my freshman year of college. My roommate and I were feeling adventurous as we ventured across campus to explore some of the other dorms.
That is when I saw him.
Nate was leaning out a first floor dorm room window, strumming a guitar (that he didn’t know how to play), and calling out to anyone who walked by to “climb through the window.”
We did it.
Looking back it seems silly.
How did you meet your husband? Oh, well… umm… I climbed through his dorm room window…
There isn’t much to remember about that first brief meeting. The room was kind of dark. The music was loud. There were several guys in there and it seemed like some were exceptionally tall. I felt intimidated and silly. Everyone was pleasant, but it wasn’t a very good atmosphere for getting to know someone new.
We didn’t stay long.
It was a short interaction that seemed meaningless. Yet the crazy thing is that I ended up marrying that terrible guitar playing man. And even more shocking… My roommate married a man that was in that room too!
How did Nate and I go from window climbing to true love? The journey continues next week! Read Chapter 2: IHOP.
