Today's entry is from Teresa B:
Mine and my hubby's story is probably much like many others...but one I know we'll always remember and hopefully tell our grandkids some day.
It all started when I decided to live and work on campus at Textile (now Philadelphia University). I had a townhouse with a couple close sorority sisters and my husband and fraternity brothers just so happened to unexpectedly stop by our house (we were having a party). I was having a great time being single and enjoying my friends and freedom. I saw this guy sitting by himself in the living room; felt kind of bad. So I sat down said hi and we starting chatting. Turns out, we talked for about 3 hours that night...weird because I'm not much of a talker & neither is he! I didn't really think anything would come of our talk, but later the next week my sorority sister friend said her friend (my husband's friend) was talking about how Pete (my husband) really wanted to ask me out but was too shy.
His friend basically asked me out for him and we had our first date. It was not the greatest of dates...Pete couldn't eat & wouldn't talk much at all (he was totally nervous). I knew if I was ever going to get to know this guy, I'd have to get him to talk, so for the next couple weeks when we got together I made him take walks with me at Kelly Drive (no tv, no distractions; just us & time to talk). It worked! He opened up & we really meshed...it was like I had found the one person who I could totally be myself with. We made each other laugh. Once school started in the fall we ate lunch together whenever possible (each skipping a class here & there to be with one another). Peter makes me so happy. In 2004 we had the wedding day I've always dreamed of...on the beach with the sunset in the background.
And exactly 2 years later our daughter, Elena, came along. We're so blessed to have found one another & have the family we have.
