Our Story Part Two

When we last left our heroine she had just received a mysterious phone call...


Well I answered the phone and it was not my friend, but it was Pop Rocks. He informed me that he went to purchase a ticket and was told that I had not purchased one. So he bought both of them. I promised to pay him back and he told me not to worry about it.


I began to wonder if this was more than "just friends."


I went to spend the weekend with my Grandmother. While I was there we went to the mall. I decided to look for a dress for the Jr/Sr and so we looked. I did indeed find a dress, but my Grandmother loved to tell how I was so excited, but adament that we were just friends. She could tell that it wasn't. She was such a smart lady!


When I got back to campus I went about my usual business and was coming out of a club meeting on Tuesday when my phone rang again. This time it was Pop Rocks, with whom I had exchanged numbers after a second phone call from a friends phone. He wanted to know if I wanted to get together and hang out that weekend. I agreed and we decided to go a movie. He called me back later in the week and added dinner. I wasn't totally sure that it was a date. I decided to wear khakis and a new top, but decided at the last minute to change into jeans. Right as I turned to change, he knocked on the door, wearing jeans of course.


The next weekend was Junior Senior and we had a wonderful time.



After that we pretty much hung out all the time! It was great. I love that we became such good friends before we dated. I also love that we found each other at church.

Our relationship came easy after that and four months later we were engaged. It felt like we had been together our entire lives.
Another random thing that I love about our relationship: I made a committment on that first date to be only myself. I figured I didn't really have anything yet to lose be being someone I'm not, so I just acted like myself. He did too and I think thats why our relationship was so wonderful, we were comfortable with ourselves in the relationship so we were comfortable together.

  1. I really like what you said about just being yourself from the beginning. That's good advice!

  2. I'm here from Modern Mrs. Darcy and I just wanted to say that your tale made me smile and gave me hope because I'm entering my senior year of college next week! I always think that meeting my husband is some abstract event largely in the future, but your post reminded me that it can happen at any moment!

  3. Emily! I am so glad that I can give you hope! I used to wonder if I had met my husband already and for most of my life (and most of college) I hadn't! Enjoy it though! I wish that I had spent more time hanging out with my girlfriends and soaking up life before marriage. Its always hard to remember to enjoy the stage of life we are in, instead of anticipating the next stage!

Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London by Creek Stewart

Creek Stewart of "Fat Guys in the Woods" fame released his first novel, Rugosa: A Survival Story from Omaha to London, on February 14. I just finished it and I was very impressed. 

Omaha is a boy scout and since the loss of his father the entire world has been turned upside down. Now he finds that one of the people nearest to him in life, London, is in trouble and he has to risk everything to save her.

Will be able to make it to her in time? Will she even be alive when he gets there? What kind of danger will he face on the way there? 

Find out the answers by reading the book. (What'd you think I was going to say?)

I really did enjoy this book. It was a gripping story and only took me three sittings to get it finished. A lot of the plot hits closer to home than I would like. An added bonus was some of the survival skills that I picked up along the way. 

I could really relate to Omaha as a character. He is a quiet person that prefers the outdoors to being around people. While b…

Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb

My latest BookSneeze selection is the book Cruel Harvest by Frances Elizabeth Grubb. The story is Mrs. Grubb’s memoir of her life growing up with an abusive father. This was a hard book to read. I’ve always had a very tender spot in my heart for children that have to endure abuse. I never had to and am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for his grace in my life. Mrs. Grubb’s story was shocking, appalling and full of hope.

Her journey led her all over the country and down many dark paths. There were times of light in her life though that made all the difference to her story. Most interesting to me was how she overcame what could have made her a hard person and was still a seemingly kind and loving woman.

My heart broke over and over again as I read her story. There were times that it seemed she had escaped only to be trapped again. It was amazing to read about her tenacity and endurance for something that would have likely killed if not the body, the soul of most people. My life e…

Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan

Libby's entire life was turned on its head in a matter of hours one cold Chicago day. How she reacts will redefine how she lives and will change the rest of her life.

I sincerely loved this book. I was hooked from the first paragraph. Despite what could be considered an outrageous plot, I found it believable and relatable. I definitely recommend it though, there are some things that could be considered triggers for some readers so avoid it if you are sensitive about cancer, losing a parent or divorce. 

Pagán's writing was refreshing and real. I think what I loved most was the epilogue that actually wrapped up the story, without putting it in a box with a bow on it.

Since I didn't receive a free copy of this book I am linking to it here for you to purchase on Amazon. This is an affiliate link, which means that I will get a small part of the profits: Life and Other Near Death Experiences by Camille Pagan.
