Our love storyOur love story started long before Matthew and I ever actually met.
And when you think about it, most love stories start that way. Every moment leading up to the one in which you meet your future husband or wife somehow shapes you and prepares you for that person you were fated for. Any previous heartbreaks or dark days or lonely nights can be crucially important in the grand scheme of things--sometimes we need to know what something feels like when its wrong before we can ever really know it when another thing is RIGHT.
So that's why i need to start the story with a little bit of background. The whole "girl meets boy, boy and girl fall in love, boy and girl get married" model is a little too simplistic for my needs. You people want details, don't you? Of course you do.
