Wedding Wednesday: How We Met

I love these "Wedding Wednesday" posts because it allows me to share events that took place before this little bloggety-blog existed. {And perhaps I just love talking about The.Best.Day!} Today I'm going back to when it all began by sharing "his and hers" versions of how we met.

How We Met (Leslie's Version):

We were introduced through mutual friends, the Campbell family. I'd say it was pretty much a set-up because I'd been hearing about how I needed to meet this "hot golf pro" for at least a year prior to actually meeting him. {Sidenote: Ryan is Abbey Campbell's golf coach, and Abbey is the younger sister of one of my best friends (Lindsay, bridesmaid).} The entire Campbell family was in Dallas for Abbey's golf tournament and invited me to join them for dinner. When I arrived, I was surprised that "the hot golf pro" was going to dinner too!

A few days later I got a text from "Ryan" {Abbey may or may not have sent the text from his phone when he wasn't looking!} saying it was nice to meet me and that we should hang out again some time. We talked occasionally through text messages over the next few months. Ryan will say it was a lot of work to catch my interest and sometimes a couple of days went by before I would respond to his texts. However, the truth is that I was just really busy with work and didn't have time for anything, let alone a "long distance relationship." The texts eventually evolved into multiple-hour phone conversations, which says quite a lot considering how much I typically dislike talking on the phone. All of the texting and late-night phone conversations led to meeting in person {nearly six months after we first met}, and we "officially" starting dating Labor Day weekend of 2011.

How We Met (Ryan's Version):

I was in Texas to watch Abbey play golf.  I went to dinner with the Campbells and was suprised to find out that Lindsay had invited her college roommate {Leslie}. We didn't really hit it off that well that evening, but it was the day after St. Patty's Day, so I'll just blame it on her hangover. Once I got back home, I got her number from Abbey and "with her help," I started my courtship.  It took about four months, but she finally gave me some attention and we started talking on the phone...and we have talked every day since.

 And there you have it...the beginning of "our story!"
