Tell Us Your Love Story...tag...part 3


YOU CAN READ PART 1 HERE AND PART 2 HERE.

I promise this is the last part.....

Our dinner and conversation was about 3 hours and neither one of us wanted to say goodbye...not normally doing this...I invited him back to my place for coffee and we talked (I swear to God, it was just talking.) until 2 am. This was one of the reasons why I was so interested in him. He was really interested in getting to know me and didn't just want to "mess around." Anyway, after he left, I tried to go to sleep but thought about him all night. The next morning I had an e-mail from him about what a great time he had.

On Friday (August 4), we went on a double date with his best friend, Rob and Rob's girlfriend. The food was good, but the movie (Hollow Man) was horrible. We laughed about how bad it was. Sorry, but Kevin Bacon is NOT a good actor.

The next day, he took me for a picnic and horseback riding. The horse he had wouldn't move forward and kept backing into the trees near the trail. We nick named him "Almost Glue," since he was so old and slow and was only interested in eating grass. We laughed a lot and talked about everything!!! That night he took me to "High Finance," a restaurant at the top of Sandia Mountain. You get there by riding a tram car. It was tons of fun and after that date we had our first kiss. It as so amazing!!!

On Sunday (August 6), he had plans, so I was spending the day doing paperwork. There was a knock at the door and the flower delivery guy was there. Richard had sent me a bouquet of flowers and a letter. The content of the letter is all mine...but let's just say, I knew I was in love with him on that day.

From then on we were inseparable. Three years later we were married and here we are today. He is still my best friend, soul mate and the most admirable, caring, hardworking, funny, sweet, gorgeous man I know. Sorry, ladies. I found him and he's all mine.

I'M TAGGING A FEW OF YOU....

That is so sweet! What a fantastic story for you to tell your son some day!

Great story, Tracey! And, ooh, High Finance...that scored him some brownie points, I'm sure! :)

Annie said...

Thanks for the tag. We went to High Finance when we were there last. We went up a day too early having come from sea level, we got altitude high. I'm sure it was gorgeous, we got fogged in, but what an experience.

Great story. I can't believe you're in the 70 day range....
