Hidden Little Messages

Falling in love...
You read about it,
You hear of being set up by a friend,
Meeting someone new during a night out on the town,
Running into one another at work,
Maybe sharing a drink and conversation with a new acquaintance at a friends house.
All seem like very natural ways of meeting that special someone. Right?

I thought so too.

I always dreamed of how I would meet that special someone. I often wracked my brain for potential people I had already met that were in my life that might be that special someone. What if it was someone I passed on the freeway in my car one day?
That I would never know but it's cool to think about.

However NONE of these were an accurate guess as to how I would meet my future husband.

I will have to attribute our chance meeting to one of the greatest networking sites of all time, we all have one, and the world loves it...FACEBOOK.

Yes, I said it. We met on Facebook.

It all started with a simple message.
Quickly the messages turned into multiple messages and grew into essays.
We hit our 100th message within 28 days of us talking.

I have been searching for months and months to try to find these old messages but I somehow thought they got deleted.
I was devastated.
Last night I thought I would search one last time for our fabled messages AND I FOUND THEM!
Gosh I was so excited!

Rereading these messages was hysterical.
We even wrote vows for each other 6 days into our conversation.
Somehow we knew we would spend the rest of our lives together.
I think they will make a great addition to our wedding.

How it all began...

Our Vows

I take thee Matt Proper to be my ice skating husband forever wearing flowers and sparkles. Until glorious dolphin rides end and crap cars start. I promise to learn the heimlich, practice my running skills and tend his broken pinky.

I take thee Morgan Beck to be my headless wife, forever screwing up certain charades clues. I vow to continually snore so that I can revel in endless dutch ovens of my used-to-be-best-potential-friend-of-all-time. Until final words cease to be hilarious and someone tops the most amazing wedding on ice ever... neither of which will ever happen.

And yes, we still talk this way.
