I know you came to find gift ideas for your man but I wanted to quickly share my story how I met my husband. We are celebrating our 10th year anniversary this December and I’m so excited. Keep scrolling for the perfect ideas.
When I met my husband on a blind date, I was totally nervous. My brother-in-law set us up after I was harassing him to set me up with someone he worked with. I was about to turn 18 and he had told me there was someone that would meet me. Daniel was 20.
One day after a shift together, my brother-in-law called my sister and told her for us to meet them at downtown Disney. My sister, brother-in-law and niece (9 years old) all went with me on my “blind date”. I saw him walk up and I was excited but very nervous. We shook hands and introduced ourselves then we went to Planet Hollywood. I thought he had awesome manners. He was shy but so was I.
We didn’t get together for a while after that. I was still in school and lived an hour and a half away from him. He thought I looked too young and was nervous to be with me until I was 18. Three months later I was celebrating my 18th Birthday with my sister and brother-in-law, and in walks Daniel in his leather jacket. Hehe! I was completely surprised to see him. Since my sister never told me he was coming.
We went to City Walk and walked around and went into some clubs. Daniel was a good dancer and had really opened up and was very funny. We walked around and it was cold outside and he offered me his jacket. That night we definitely had sparks. I saw that he was a fun going, sweet, caring and funny guy. By the end of the month, we went on a date (by ourselves) to the movies to see King Kong. We stayed up all night and talked in his little green Honda Civic. Then he wrote D+M on the foggy window and asked me to be his girlfriend. We leaned in to have our first kiss and it went all wrong…..
15 years together (almost 10 years of marriage). We eventually perfected our kiss. I’m so grateful for my sister and brother-in-law for hooking us up. We have gone through our ups and downs but I’m so happy he is the one by my side.
