Tuesday 4 is in honor and memory of Toni Taddeo. Click HERE to play along with us!Marriage...
1. How did you meet your husband/wife?
My husband, who I didn't know at the time, moved into the apartment directly above mine. The day he was moving in I happened to be outside when I saw him carrying a big heavy TV up the stairs. Being neighborly I asked if he needed help. He asked me if I would just open his door. Of course I obliged. That was our first official meeting. At the same time I was already thinking he was not bad on the eyes ;)
In the evenings I always sat out on my little patio. I guess he noticed. A few evenings later he started spending evenings out on his little patio above mine. He was a musician. He would sit out there playing his guitar and singing love songs. Maybe a week or so later, after I had been serenaded every evening, he left a little note with a single long stemmed red rose on my patio for me to find when I went out that evening. I had a feeling, but then I knew for sure that his patio appearances and singing love songs weren't a coincidence. A few nights later he appeared downstairs outside my patio, again with a single red rose. We sat out there and talked the night away. The rest is history. :)
2. How did you know he/she was “the one”?
I have no idea how I knew, but I definitely knew and very early on. I guess he knew too. I've heard this story from his brothers every time we see them to this day. I don't think it had even been a week since we had met. His brothers were visiting and he told them she's the one, I'm going to marry her.
3. How did he propose?
We had only been together for about three months. We were in the car heading somewhere when he looked over at me and said let's get married. I said ok! He said let's go look at rings this weekend, I said ok! We did, and we had our wedding four months later. Crazy!
4. Do you have any favorite stories from your marriage or about your husband/wife?
We purposely planned the wedding for April Fools Day, it just seemed fitting for our crazy selves. It was a small wedding, just close friends and family. Every single person at the wedding thought it was all some kind of an elaborate April Fools Day joke. We spent the entire reception trying to convince everyone that we really, for real, just got married!
And we lived happily ever after. The End :)
