I always joke with my husband that I was the first to ask him out. We met in college and I immediately fell hard for him and while waiting for him to finally tell me his feelings, I worked up the guts up to ask him to a service sorority formal (where the girls ask the guys). After all of that work, it ended up being canceled due to a snow storm. I think he knew by then that I was into him and he asked me out on a date.
Fast forward 11ish years and 3 kids later, we still love to date each other. I’ve learned that it doesn’t always have to be planned out or anything fancy, our main goal is to reconnect and come back together. We have a few favorite date night places but when it comes down to it our purpose is to spend time talking and knowing what’s happening in each of our lives and hearts.
