Show Us Your Life – How You Met Your Husband

                                   Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

Alex and I met in April 2002 when we were set up by mutual friends to go to the prom together. On April 11, 2002 Alex IM’d me (gosh it has been a LONG time since i’ve been on AIM) and asked this questions…You + Me = Prom? ….. i said yes. We started hanging out after that so that we would get to know each other before we went to the prom in May. On April 20, 2002 I was asked to be someone's girlfriend for the last time. I can remember that night like it was yesterday. In was a cold April night and Alex was driving me home in the firebird. We were holding hands as we drove and i remember having so many mixed emotions (all good). Later that evening we were talking over AIM (again i know…obviously the only way people communicated in 2002) and he said to me “I really wanted to ask you out tonight” and I said “well why didn’t  you” and he said “because i wasn’t sure what you would say” and i said “i would have said yes” … and there ends my single life.

We went to the prom together…then another and a few other events before i graduated in 2003.
