Hi Everyone
 Happy Tuesday
Being a hopeless romantic 
 and a bit  nosey curious 
 to learn how 
 couples met
and fell in

My parents met at Church  she was 19 and he was 26
My Mom was actually engaged to another man but he was away at college
My Dad had a car  and offered to drive my Mom to Church
she had to take two different street cars to get there
 this went on for about six months
 my Dad even went on a few dates with my mom and her fiance to
 "take pictures of them"
one night my Dad drove my Mom home after Church
 and he walked her to her front door as usual
 but instead of saying goodbye
 he kissed her
My Mom said she was so surprised but it was a really great kiss
 the very next day
she broke up with her fiance
 my parents got married a year later

I met my handsome husband at work
 I had just started a new job at a cosmetic counter for Estee Lauder
 my husband and his friend came in to the department store
I remember he walked by a few times and then went
 and jumped on some exercise equipment that was for display only
 there were even signs and ropes !!!
My new boss of 3 weeks asked me to please go and get those guys
off of the exercise equipment
 I went marching over with everyone watching
 and said ever so sweetly
"Can't you guys read"
this equipment is for display only
 my  handsome husband said
 how else was I going to get you over here to say Hi

great line.....
but he did get off the bike

the best part of this story is
I was hired for another job
 I received a call telling me they had over hired
 I did not get the job after all
 I was so disappointed
 I had already given notice at my current job
this all seemed so unfair but God had a great plan
a friend told me her sister was thinking about applying for a job at a department store
and I should go and apply too
so I did and we both got a job at the store
 I met my handsome husband 3 weeks later

A Dear friend of mine met her husband when
 she was in College she
 went to a halloween party dressed as a lobster on a dare
 when she got back to her dorm room she realized she had lost her key to her room
and started knocking on doors for help
no one answered on her floor so
she had to go downstairs
finally a door opened
and a boy answered  he was visiting his sister He said
she could stay with them until her roomate returned
they started talking
imagine she is still in her lobster costume
They were up until dawn talking and laughing
forgetting all about the time that night
and the sister also in the room
 they began dating and got married that same year
they even served lobster at their wedding

My Great Grandfather met my Great grandmother
when he was traveling across the country
headed  west
he stopped at a farm for some food and water
my Great grandmother had 3 sisters she was the oldest
all the girls were excited to have a young stranger at the dinner table
My Great grandfather said he took one look and fell in love with my Great grandmother
he stayed two days and on the third day they eloped
 she came west with him
they were married 64 years until his death
The plate in these pictures was my Great grandmothers
the one thing she took with her

I would
 to know  how you met each other

"Nothing is impossible to a willing heart"
