So, life has changed a lot for me since my last blog post. Where do I begin? First of all, I’m still in living in western Kentucky. This past summer of 2015 I met a wonderful girl named Amy who has totally changed my life. It is pretty amazing. I’ve been working an IT job in Paducah, KY for about 6 years now. My coworkers and I have a tendency to go out and eat for lunch on occasion. One of the places we went to eat frequently was called Pizza Inn. And that’s where I met her…
I remember the first time that I saw Amy. She was gorgeous. She had the most beautiful black hair. It was short. She was tan. And she had the most lovely brown eyes and the world’s most amazing smile. I remember the first time she smiled at me. I am a pretty shy guy, so I can imagine I blushed a little bit and probably didn’t know much to say other than, “Hi…” I remember I fell in love with her almost instantly. I always watched her whenever I came into Pizza Inn. And I always wondered, “Would a girl like her ever give a guy like me a chance?”
Well, as it turns out, she had been watching me as well. I didn’t know it, but I had somehow made an impression on Amy with my niceness or my smile or something. I really will never understand what she sees in me. I’m nobody special. I’m pretty average. I’ve got my share of baggage. I worry. I’m fearful. I’m indecisive. I’m extremely human. But for whatever reason, she liked me. Hurray!
So, one day I went into Pizza Inn for lunch by myself. My coworkers were both out on vacation. So, it was just me. And I sat in the front section and just happened to have Amy as my waitress. Lucky me! I remember she waited on me and talked to me a little more than usual that day. It made a big impression on me. I was so happy. I remember looking at my ticket which happened to have my beautiful waitress’s name on it. Amy.
Well, the next time I was in Pizza Inn with my coworkers, I sat in a different section. But they were really busy that day and Amy just happened to come by our table to help fill drinks. I didn’t know it at the time, but she did that on purpose. I also ran into Amy at the buffet that day as I was grabbing a plate and she stopped and talked to me. She caught me off guard and I was almost speechless. Remember – I was really shy! So, I was like, “Oh, hey…yeah…nice seeing you…” Basically, I was stumbling all over my words.
After that day at Pizza Inn, I decided to do something. I looked up Amy and Pizza Inn and I ended up finding this girl on Facebook. Yes, I know. I’m basically a middle-schooler in my approach to find out more about this woman. But I didn’t care. I had to do something. So, I added her as a friend on Facebook and decided to wait and see if she responded.
Well, Amy told me she got the friend request and was instantly excited. She added me as a Facebook friend and we began messaging that evening. I was floored! I couldn’t believe this girl who I’ve admired for so long was talking to me! But she was. So, we began by chatting on there. Next thing I know, we end up going on a date.
We met in Noble Park for our first date. I was so nervous. I was probably sweating like a mad man. She looked so beautiful on that first date. We talked and we walked. I felt like I was floating on a cloud. And before the night was over, we kissed. My first kiss with Amy was under the big gazebo in the middle of the pond in Noble Park. It was magical. It was perfect. It felt like fate.
Now I’m with Amy and I couldn’t be happier. Every day I get to see her beautiful smile. Every night I get to fall asleep next to her. And I know that from today until forever, we will be together. We plan on marrying on October 09, 2015, in Noble Park under the same gazebo where we kissed for the first time.
I’ll finish this by adding that Amy is a wonderful woman. She’s a Christian. We have been adjusting…letting our children adjust to each other…and I believe we’re going to build a beautiful, God-loving family together. I pray every day that we’ll always be together. And I have faith that we will.
