Last week, I promised Courtney from Confessions of a Knitter that I would write about how Special K and I met...I kind of forgot so here I go. :)
A little back story, I was playing softball for two teams. The Tuesday night team was the younger crowd from church and then the Thursday night team was the "tad" bit older crowd from church. The coach on the Thursday night team was Special K's dad. During the time I had been playing on the team I had gotten to know Special K's dad and step-mother. I would often go to trivia with them on Monday nights. I had heard that his son was moving down from somewhere and honestly I thought he would be a young son like 15 or younger. When a 22 year old son showed up to one of our Sunday practices I was caught off guard.
Special K had been living with his mother in Ohio and had come down to get a job and live with his dad. That first practice we talked a little and Special K was already hooked. (hehe) Our first conversation that we actually had was at a going away party for his step-sister at the sports bar we are having our reception at. He came over and sat next to me and we talked for a long time. I didn't think much of it but heard from his dad that Special K thought I was cute. :)
After we talked that day, Special K asked me out on a date but I told him that I wanted to be friends. I had been kind of seeing someone, which ended shortly after he started asking me out but I still wasn't ready for a "date" with him. It was never that I didn't like him but I have never been a trusting woman when it comes to men that I liked and I was "scared" to "date" him. At first I only spent time with him in a group and then we started hanging out and doing things just us. I always had a great time but still kept telling him it wasn't a "date." You can imagine how thrilled he was to hear this. He started seeing someone for a bit and I didn't like her but was polite about it. He was seeing her when I realized that I just had to give him a chance and go on a "date." Instead of telling him to break up with this girl and date me, I told him that I had an idea(to go on an actual date) but he had to figure out the other girl first.
The other girl ended up breaking up with him and Special K and I kept hanging out and getting closer. One night we were at a friend's house for her birthday party and it was the first time I realized that I really really wanted to kiss him. :) That's when I knew that we were meant to be together. Soon after that we started dating but didn't tell anyone until we figured out that we made a good couple.
We have been together for over a year now and it's been a roller coaster ride of emotions but I know that I love him very much and would rather be with him than anyone in the world.
Well, hope you enjoyed the double dose of Wedding Wednesday this week. :)
Happy Hump Day!!
