How my husband and I met: Our Love Story
Hey everyone, this is post is actually not going to be about my pregnancy but about how I met my husband.
Well, I don’t think I have ever talked about how I met and about our relationship so here goes- our love story.
I “met”my husband 2 years ago.
Here is the reason why I put quotations around met. My husband and I met at Chili’s where we both worked. He has been working there about 9 years, almost 10. I started to work there about 3 years ago.
According to him he used to say hi to me all the time. Quite frankly I don’t remember that at all. Like, he says that I would say hi to him and give him a kiss on the cheek and everything but I really don’t remember any of that.
Anyway my first year working there I was a host and I had a boyfriend at that time. However, he didn’t live here, he lived in Colombia. My relationship with that guy was not the greatest..I thought I loved him but boy was I wrong.
Being introduced: Love story unfolds
But because I was with him I didn’t really pay attention to any other guys probably the reason I don’t remember ever meeting my husband !! Hahaha Long story short I broke up with him(the guy from Colombia). A couple months after the break up I was talking to one of my bosses and he was telling me that I wasn’t the only Colombian that there was another server who was Colombian and also a cook.
And I was like, well I know about the server, but the cooks, what none of them look Colombian! So I asked him who? And he was like, look let me show you him and he showed me Jose (husband) I was like ohhhhh wow I didn’t even know that.
Jose had also just ended a relationship a few months back. So after that day my boss showed me him, Jose started saying hello to me more and more, and me too. At this point I was a server so I would get out late from work… also at this point I liked him I thought he was cute and funny.
One day we both got out late. I got out before, as I was walking out of the kitchen he asked me: “hey are you going to wait for me”? I jokingly said yeah but I wasn’t going to, we were just playing. For some reason I found my self waiting for him!
He was surprised himself because he was playing and thought I wouldn’t stay. Anyway, he got out and we went to the parking garage and asked me what I wanted to do. I didn’t know so he offered to go to his house — I know what you all might be thinking but we never had those intentions– well we dropped my car off at my house and he took me to where he lived, he had a roommate, so I met them and we just hungout at his house.
Things got real serious!!!
Unfortunately, and fortunately, things happened that weren’t planned– but that’s all I will say because this a rated G blog!
After he took me home. He was/is so sweet. We started talking more and hanging out more to the point where I started sleeping over his house! Obviously I wouldn’t tell my mom because she wouldn’t have approved. She and I were living together at the time.
That October of 2015 I was scheduled for a surgery. I had a cyst in my left ovary and had to get it removed. He was so sweet and was texting me throughout the surgery worried about me. My mom saw the texts because she had my phone during the surgery, and asked me who he was! So I told her that it was someone I was interested in and that he was interested in me. I was on bed rest for like a week and a half so Jose actually came to my house one day to visit me and met my mom. My mom didn’t like him at first because of the age difference he’s 34 and I’m 21 so I can understand why she wouldn’t approve.
Eventually she started liking him and now loves him. From that moment on we were inseparable. At that point my mom knew I was sleeping over his house. I was actually more at this house than mine. I would only be home I think Tuesdays and Thursdays to hang out with my mom. Even sometimes Jose was with us.
Eventually my mom offered to move out from where she and I lived! To go to an efficiency she had been planning on going to save more money. We didn’t want that but she insisted! We ended moving in together after being together for 4 months crazy!
After that we ended moving to Nashville which is a whole other story for another day. Little to say we are back in Miami so obviously didn’t go that great in Nashville. We now live in an awesome townhouse in Homestead. Hoping to buy a house soon!
Married and Pregnant–our love story!
We are recently married, have 2 dogs and are patiently waiting the arrival of first baby boy together. I am currently 9 months pregnant and couldn’t be happier to call this amazing man Jose my husband. He has been such a great support, best friend, boyfriend, partner in crime, and husband!
I am so blessed that God but this wonderful man in my life and we are praying that we having many more years of happy marriage and a wonderful blessed life together!
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,
5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;
7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.
8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
