I went to pick up my best friend on April 18, 2001. It was supposed to be an ordinary run of the mill kind of day. We were going to the Farmers Market, to the movies, and just to hang out. She called me and asked if we could also pick up her boyfriend to spend the day. I said sure. We go and pick him up and he asked me if it was all right to pick up his nephew. I said, “sure, why not make this a better day?” Little did I know. We pulled up to his apartment complex and he came out of the door. I saw the handsomest angel sent from God Himself. He came down and got in the car. I was driving, and every now and then, I would look in the rear view mirror and I saw him looking at me. He made me feel kind of nervous at first, but as the day went on, I kind of relaxed. We drove up to this point where if you stand on the hill, you can see forever. My friend and her man went down the hill, and his nephew followed them down. My best friend told him to go back up the hill and come and
talk to me. He was nervous, because he said “I don’t know what to talk about.” She said, “say whatever comes into your mind.” I can remember the first question I ever asked him. “When’s your birthday?” (I had to break the ice somehow.) Our birthdays are 5 yrs. and 10 days apart, which makes us the same sign. Scorpio. He started to talk about the bees, the plants, and the birds. He calls me his “Nature Girl”, because that’s where we met, in the middle of nature. We talked for hours on end, until the sun was practically setting. We exchanged numbers, and he called me exactly 20 minutes later. (that’s how long it took me to get home after dropping everybody off). We talked almost all night long, and before the conversation was over, he told me that he loved me, and I told him I felt the same way. Needless to say, that was the beginning of our forever. We have been together now for 2 years, 5 months, and 9 days. We are getting married in November of 2002. Baby, I love you, and I am so happy that we came to pick you up on that beautiful day in April.
