10 Facts About Me and My Better Half

by Josée

I was inspired by Elisa over at Elisa Loves to join in on Betty’s 10 Facts About Me and My Better Half lists.

1} The first time I tried to get his attention he handed me a computer magazine and proceeded to play his computer game. I decided that I didn’t like him. That was in late elementary school.

2} We went to the same school, the same church and our parents were good friend so we saw each other a lot. For the longest time I ignored him and spent time with his younger brother. Then his parents bought a cabin on a lake. He would do water sports and I was interested again.

4} We started dating when I was in grade 11 and he was in grade 12. I asked him out. The next year he left to go to university and convinced me to come the following year. I wasn’t hard to convince.

5} He studied engineering (for work) and played piano and computer games (for fun) and I distracted him when I wasn’t doing my own studying. He didn’t mind.

6} We went through a lot of discernment about our relationship in that first year we were both at university. Finally we decided to get engaged, I was 19 and he was 20.

7} We got married one year later and lived in a tiny apartment on campus. Sometimes Hubby would come home with flowers, picked from the neighbors’ yards. I would make him crepes.

8} My Hubby randomly brings home “Best Wife” certificates and write ridiculously silly poems that make no sense but do rhyme.

9} He is very supportive of my crazy ideas (like raising meat rabbits or pressing 500lbs of apples) except when I mention something absurd like planting a garden on the roof of our house (which would be very challenging).

10} Almost 6 years later we have two little ones (with the hopes of more) and we learn to love each other more as each year passes by.

Yay!! Loved reading this (I've obviously a little behind in my blog reading). =) I love that your hubby supports your crazy ideas about gardens on the roof (I would LOVE that!), mine just rolls his eyes and waits for my next crazy idea. Haha.
