How Did You Meet Your Spouse?

In honor of Charles and I's wedding anniversary, on April 26, I thought I would put this fun question on my blog.

"How Did You Meet Your Spouse"?

Well, I was a waitress at Friendly's restaurant, in Portland, Maine. Charles was a customer that came in every Thursday. He usually requested to sit in my section but I was dating someone else at the time. He always ordered the same thing...Cream of Brocolli soup - large and a cup of coffee.

One busy Saturday he asked me if I go to the movies with him. I felt rushed for an answer and said yes.

When we finally went out he took me to dinner and a jazz club. At the jazz club he told me he needed to tell me something...he was in the Navy. Ugh! It was too late I was hooked.

That was twenty-four years ago!

p.s. Marcus had the opportunity to visit the exact restaurant in 2004. He loved the food but couldn't wrap his mind around the fact that his parents didn't always know each other. See, even the teenagers believe in a soulmate.

We met through church events - we were friends for several years and I didn't think he would ever ask me out! He finally did and 5 months later we were engaged and 4 months after that we were married. :)

Awww...that's such a sweet story! Happy Anniversary Charles & Rona!

Dave and I met in college through a mutual friend. I was going to the dining hall with two friends and the one guy that knew Dave just out of the blue said, "Mary Ellen, one of my friends thinks you're cute". :)

Ohhh how sweet! Happy anniversary! Dustin and I met while living in the same dorm in college. We were friends then but didn't date until years later.

First, Happy Anniversary!! What a romantic story.
I met my hubby at work. I just was transferred into a new store & I saw a guy who was always hitting on me. Oh no, I said how could I get transferred to where this jerk works. Then I spotted his hunky tall friend. I knew immediately we would be together. So I started dating my hubby & to get revenge his friend started dating my hubby's sister. It all worked out though, we've all been married about 11 years now, ha ha.
