It All Started In Spanish Class

Kirk and I were best buddies in high school. Back when he had a Mexican Mafia goatee, and I had bleach blonde hair that I didn't dye. I dreamed about dating him, but never thought it would happen. We were just friends. Just really good friends.

But something happened around graduation time. I can't even really remember how it happened now. We didn't go out on a date and he didn't formally "ask me out." We just ended up together. We somehow progressed from good buddies to an inseparable couple.

Been together ever since.

When people say things like, "I married my best friend," it always makes me smile.

Because I really did.

Happy Valentine's Day, Honey!

Love you to pieces.

Love the pics....Addison actually recognized you guys! You do look pretty much the same though. Have a safe trip back! Will we see you tomorrow night? I still have your crockpot!

I love the title and the pictures. It all started in Home Ec class for us!! Justin is very proud of that fact. Isn't that the main reason guys take Home Ec?

It's always cool to me when two people truly are best friends before dating!

That is a great story. My husband and I were friends from day one. We started of with the dating scene but it was always so comfortable which was really cool.

I enjoyed reading your story. You guys have looked good together from the beginning. Andrew and I fell in love when we first met and it's only gotten better over the years. I thank God for the true love Andrew and I have for each other, but for yours as well. Isn't it great?! Happy belated Valentine's Day. Love ya,
