We started dating 2 years later-after a few weeks of studying for kinetics and therapeutics (both tough courses required to become a pharmacist). It was easy. There was no forcing it. We had very different upbringings- I had a single mother, he had a 2 parent household. I was a city girl. He was from the South. I ran the streets. He was a homebody. But we were still so similar. He got me. We had so much in common- music, movies, ideas of the future, our love for Scrabble, and the good heart that makes us kind. I was eager to spend time with him because he knew how to treat me. I didn't have to teach him a thing! I was ready for love and he was ready to love me. I had been disappointed and lied to so many times in the past, I was content with the fact that there was NOONE in the world who could measure up- who would love me unconditionally and I accept and return. When I least expected it, God gave me Nate. The name Nathaniel means God's Gift and he truly is. No one is perfect, but he's perfect for me!
Today we celebrate 5 years of marriage and 7 years of love. He proposed to me on a Scrabble board. That story can be told on another date!
Happy Anniversary to Us!
