Meredith & Christine

Sometimes love can hit you at the weirdest times, and that’s definitely the case when it came to myself and Christine.

We met in 2006, she and I were in the same Philosophy class at a college in Lynchburg, VA. We were both taken by other people at the time, and it took me a while to warm up to her. She was quiet and didn’t really say much, and I have a tendency to be very crazy and rambunctious. We were definitely polar opposites in every sense of the word!

After I finally got her to open up, we became fast friends. And soon the sparks flew (well, at least on my end.)

I first noticed Christine “like that” when she and I and a few friends went out for her birthday in ’08. There was something that was just extremely sexy about her, and I couldn’t exactly put my finger on it. I had always flirted with her in the past jokingly, but something about that night made the attraction more than jest.

Well, things tend to happen for a reason, and they did. In August of 2008, Christine broke up with her partner, and my fiance’ at the time broke up with me. Heartbroken and torn, we turned to each other for comfort. Soon, that comfort grew to a deep-seated love and respect for each other… and we were inseperable after that.

We got engaged on April 6th, 2009. These past six months have been a whirlwind, but we both know we’re destined to be together. Graduation from college for me is in May, and then the tornado of wedding planning begins! Commitment ceremony will be in April of 2010. I know it’s going to come up fast, but Chris and I are extremely stoked.
