First Love ❤

Day three of 30 day Blog Challenge
First Love ❤

On our first date I knew I'd marry him....how did I know? I just did, there was something about him I was smitten from day one! 
Our first date was on the ski slopes....his first love for sure! He kind of tricked me into the date, said a bunch of us are going skiing do you want to come? Me not being a big skier thought okay as long as it's a group how bad could it be. There was no group just him and I and a blizzard! 
This is me on our first date....why I have a picture is beyond me. Don't you love the old pom pom hats! And how about his jumpsuit! So Vintage or so 80's!

Okay back to my LOVE.....I fell hard, first his striking good looks won me over, his height and muscles wow! amazing blue eyes and feathered hair! But more importantly he was so kind, funny,smart. I was drawn to him like a magnet. I thought I had been in love before. Many times but none like this, it was instant from day one. 

Two and half years after that first date, we were married. On March 19th we celebrate our 23rd year of marriage. 

My first and only love...I'm so lucky to have him and love him with all my ❤!

I can't believe that you both took pics on your first date, so lucky! I think it is strange and amazing that you, Beth, and I KNEW we were going to marry our husbands when we first met them! I remember telling Mom and seeing her roll her eyes. Can't blame her, I was sixteen!

Of course he tricked you. That's what we guys do. LOL

But it paid off for both of you. Congratulations on 23 great years.

He's very handsome. :)

I was just telling someone today that on my first date with my husband, it wasn't really love at first site, but I knew, he was special. It was like my soul said, "Oh, there you are. I've been waiting for you.". Sometimes, you just know I think.

So fun to hear the back story! H is a skier, too. And I skied for awhile because it was the only way to get to see him. Now I've got him, and I haven't skied in over 20 years. I know - not fair. :)

That is the sweetest love story. I think your pom pom hat is cool. Do you still have it?

I love the pics you have from your first date! Gotta love 80s fashion - though he did look great in that skisuit! Its funny that you knew right away when you met that you'd marry him - my guy and i felt the same way. I guess tht's how you know it's meant to be!
