Show Us Your Life: How We Met

Show Us Your Life with Kelly's Korner

I had ended a relationship in December of 2003. I was working at Cracker Barrel and not having the best of years. The guy before Blake didn't want kids and I already had one. He was great with Steve but I knew that our relationship would not go anywhere. When we ended our relationship, it ended some friendships also. I had been hard core into the karate circuit and he was the instructor. I moved karate schools and just went back to life as normal. Around April I met a guy and gal at the Barrel who was a lot of fun to hang out with. When I was with them they argued constantly. We started hanging out with one or the other. Usually not both at the same time. See this guy was involved with this girl for the past 6 years. I never had any intention of ever dating this guy BUT as time went on he broke things off with her and we ended up together. The next couple of months were blissful and for the first time in 6 years I thought that he may be the one! After 4 short months of dating he and Steven surprised me one afternoon with a ring and then he asked me to marry him. We then waited another year before the wedding and the rest is history. We are getting better by the year and I love him with all my heart! He is a great husband, father, stepfather, and provider! I can't imagine my life any different. Oh yeah......and the other woman!? She is happy and I think married living up north. They are still friends and when she comes to town I actually encourage Blake to visit with her. They grew up together and Blake and his brother are both friends. She even lived with us for about a month once. So, while I did steal him in a sense, this is who I was meant to be with!
