How We Met… 2010

September

     I met Eston at Groat’s Bar in my home town. My cousin Tawnya had brought me out for drinks. I had just moved back into my dad’s home after my first year of college, it was Summer Break.

     Tawnya was friends with all of Eston’s friends that were at the bar and so we all drank together. By the end of the night, they had all left but we were still chatting away. As the bar had then closed up, I drove Eston home. The very next day I went back to his house to visit some more. After that, I never really left.

November 21st

     Eston and I had been hanging out for a couple of months by now. I remember I was watching a movie with his little kids Riley and Basil that I then heard a familiar ping on my phone. He texted me “Will you be my girlfriend?”

     I had to pin him down to get him to really say it out loud but I said “Yes” to his question with enthusiasm anyways.  

November 24th

     This was Eston’s 26th Birthday! It was also our first date as a couple, I drove him to Marshall, MN and we enjoyed food, shopping and then ice cream from the local Cold Stone Creamery! The ice cream ended up all over the side of my car at 60MPH as we were traveling home later. We also slid into the median of a divided highway by Granite Falls, MN as a cop tried to get me to slow down by swerving in front of us. In his defense, I was speeding a little bit but that is no excuse to attempt a maneuver like that on icy roads.

     Eston made fun of me for quite some time for that and still loves retelling the story to people who will listen.

December

     I finally moved into Eston’s house! Our first home together.
