It was a set up Thu, Feb 06, 2020
In 2006 I would have told you I had no interest in marriage. I was in my mid 20's and I enjoyed living the bachelor life. This all changed on February 23 2007, the day I met Sarah.
My cousins girlfriend(now wife) Alexis hired a new girl at her salon and she thought we might like each other. Alexis was the person who usually cut my hair at the time so she told me to come in with my cousin on a certain night when this new girl would be working. Alexis cut my hair as usual and the four of us went out and had a drink afterwards. We laughed and joked a little bit. She was super cool so at the end of the night we exchanged numbers and went our separate ways. The next day she ended up texting me while I was at work to see if I wanted to hang out. I said sure and we have literally been together every day since.
It just worked. Right away we had a lot in common and laughed, A LOT. After a year of dating, on the anniversary of our first meeting we took a trip out of town to celebrate. I had plans for a more public proposal, but I chickened out and proposed in the hotel room. She said yes and we were married on Halloween 2009.
13 happy years later, she is my best friend and we still laugh... A LOT.
