We started instant messaging one another and looking at each other's music selections on our phone. We would go to group lunches and company events. I developed quite the crush on him and the feeling was mutual. We fell hard for one another and are still crazy about each other. We laugh, hug, and say "I love you" every day. Yep, we're one of those couples you hate. The kind of couple that would rather hang out with each other than anyone else. The kind of couple that can work together all day and still want to be with each other at the end of the day. The kind of couple you roll your eyes at and want to vomit for loving each other so much. The kind of couple we use to long to be but didn't think would ever happen. We really are soul mates.
Fast forward five moves later (ultra-modern condo in Tampa, tinnnny temp apartment in Connecticut, Cape Cod house in Connecticut, tiny apartment in St. Petersburg, and now our forever Colonial in Valrico) in six years, two jobs for hubby and three for me, and more gray hair for the both of us.
Although today is our third wedding anniversary - we got married at the Holiday Inn Clearwater on the pool deck overlooking the gulf - we are going to celebrate this weekend so that we can take some time to just be with each other sans house projects. Neither one of us has been able to relax (or get more than 5-6 hours of uninterrupted sleep each night) since we put in the offer on the home. Too much to do and worry about I suppose. But hopefully we'll find something fun to do and take the time we need to celebrate.
