Todd and I went to high school together years ago, but we never knew each other well. We had some of the same friends (he even dated a couple of mine), but I never would've imagined he'd someday be the love of my life. We both married other people, and both divorced several years ago. I have a 13 year old son from my first marriage, and Todd has no kids.
Fast forward several years, and I get a Facebook message from a familiar face. He suggested we have lunch sometime, and we messaged back and forth a LOT. I wasn't really realizing that every friend on our lists was seeing everything we typed, and as the flirtation continued, his friends started asking about being invited to the wedding.....and this was before our first date! He lives a couple of hours away and it was a few weeks before we could work out that first date, but then everything just fell into place.
It's hard to explain how everything just fit, but almost immediately we were talking about marriage. My sister got married this spring, and that whole process helped a lot with deciding what we want and what we don't. Now we're working out all the practical details and planning on getting married next June.
I joined Project Wedding last year when I was helping plan my sister's wedding, but now I'm looking forward to figuring this all out for my own!
