How you met your husband!


This week from Kelly's Korner is show us your life: How you met your Husband!!
It all started in May 2005!
Erik and I met at Sanmina-SCI back in 2002 when we were both working in the Richardson office together. We really didnt' strike up a friendship until we moved our offices to Allen, Texas and were on the same Program Management Team. Around early May of 2005, we started going out to lunch with another friend and some how started to email each other at work! Funny considering we were sitting 2 cubicals away, but (speaking for both of us), it was the highlight of our day to come in and read/write an email to the other! It was a lot of fun, but neither of us wanted anyone else in the office to know we were talking. I recall the weekend of Memorial Day and I was planning to visit my Step mom and her brother in Murphy and Erik said I should stop by because he lived just a few minutes down the road in Wylie. I was so nervous before I went. I remember sitting with Kaye and Karl talking about it before I headed off to see Erik. I got lost and was a lot later than expected but I finally made it. It was fun to sit and talk face to face without being at work and not over email. We went on our first unofficial date to Chili's and that's where it started!

We gradually got more secure with our relationship to the point of telling people we worked with that we were dating! That was scary! People were really happy for us!

In October of that same year, I had sold my house and Erik was being deployed for Kosovo. Erik asked me to move in with him which helped us both at the time. I wasn't sure where I was going to live and he was leaving his house empty with a dog for a year! Our relationship grew very strong during our last days before he was deployed and even more so when he was gone. We made plans for a trip during his R&R in June of 2006 and met in Italy. We traveled through the country and also went to Turkey where Erik met my Dad and Kaye for the first time! It was the best trip EVER!! On our last night together in Rome, Erik proposed!!

We were married May 26, 2007 and welcomed our first child, Ryan in September. We are now expecting our second child, Reese in June!

Its been a fun and amazing ride and I couldn't imagine my life with anyone else in this world! Erik is the sweetest, most loving and brave man I know. I look forward to spending a long and happy life with him!! xoxo, love you babe! Pin It
