Show Us Your Life: How I Meet My Husband

I jumping back on the Show Us Your Life series over at Kelly’s Korner.

Jon and I meet in March of 2005. My best friend, Amanda, and I had decided to come down to Austin for a short spring break trip. We stayed with my aunt for the weekend. On Friday night Amanda and I went for coffee at Mozart's. I remember telling her that I was feeling really comfortable not being in a relationship and that I wanted to just enjoy being single for awhile. Little did I know, I would meet Jon the very next day.

On Saturday my aunt took Amanda and I to a concert at Antone’s. She invited a few of her friends and one happened to bring Jon along. We all had a lot of fun that evening and I was sad when it was over and we had to say goodbye, but I had a weird feeling that I would see Jon again. 

On our way home from the concert, Amanda mentioned to my aunt that I thought Jon was cute. Mu aunt called her friend, who had brought Jon to the concert, and asked if they wanted to come with us to the kite festival the next day. They did and we all had a great time. When we were leaving, Jon asked for my number and that was the beginning of our relationship.

I was living in Dallas at the time so we had a long distance relationship until I finished up school in May of 2006. When I graduated I moved down to Austin.

We have known each other for just over 5 years and been married for 3 now. We could not be happier, especially now that we have this little guy in our lives.
