A Decade of Dating.

Saturday, October 1, 2016

We met in the last year of the last century.  That sounds dramatic.  We met in 1999.  He was the quarter back and I was so not a cheerleader.  That fall, between passing periods, he asked me if I would "go out" with him.  A decade later, he became my husband.

That is the snippet of our story.  Our story, though not likely an overly exciting tale, is one of steadfastness.  It speaks love volumes of how God can weave together two people’s stories in the most refining, beautiful of ways.  

We dated for a decade.  We have often joked that someday we’d write the book, “A Decade of Dating.”  Seventeen years later, this seems like the craziest time to try.  

During the month of October, my hope is to write about what a decade of dating had to teach.  Consider it the open letter that I hope my kids will keep tucked in their back pockets.  

I hope you’ll join me.

  1. This is such a great basis for a #write31days series! My husband and I were together...umm...8 months...before we got married, haha, so your story sounds like the complete opposite of my own experience! We met 8 years ago, so we've got a few years to go before we hit a decade yet, but I'm looking forward to all the memories and 'growing up' that can happen in a whole decade!
