The Beginning of Love

These past few days I have been going through all of my old emails related to everything wedding planning for our wedding scrapbook. I forgot how much detail and planning went into our wedding! 

This made me want to write about our entire love story starting with how we met.

We met in August 2007. We both started working at Hollister at the Mall of America. (Looking back we both find it semi embarrassing that we met while working at Hollister, but without it we never would have met!)

We started talking a lot at work and I always felt that Richard was a good listener and easy to talk to. He impressed me with our first date, which was the first real date I had been on. Eventually, we hung out outside of work and thats when everything clicked. We started dating and Richard swept me right off my feet.

He impressed me with our first date, which was the first real date I had been on. We went to a restaurant in Hudson, Wisconsin(where Richard lived) called Mama Maria's. Then Richard took me to a state park-Willow River, where we walked down a path (and a hill) to a waterfall. Since the sun had already set, the stars were out and it was really beautiful. On the way back to the car, Richard decided that he was going to carry me on his back. It was thoughtful, but by the time we got to the top of the hill, Richard was sweating. He quickly changed his shirt when we got back to the car and hoped I didn't notice. What a cutie. 

Yes that is a wrestling sweatshirt. Richard wrestled in high school. True Story. And I was a big fan for those few months-but only for those few months.

More on our love story to come!

Linking up with Shanna!
