Hi! Today I'm so glad to say that the lovely Shalea is sharing her story today. It's so cute, and I can definitely relate to her on being a sucker for musicians! :) If you're willing to share your story, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much Shalea for taking to time to share this and I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did! xo -Liz
Sean and I actually met for the first time when I was 12 and he was 14 I had heard from some girls at school about a really cute boy in a band. Naturally, I HAD to meet this boy. Honestly, I was super disappointed. It was at a concert so I couldn’t see him very well and I didn’t actually get introduced to him. I was with a group that knew the group he was in, so we stood in a mutual circle of friends the entire night without saying a word to each other. About 6 months later my family tried a new church in Farmington, NM. We walk in and I hear the most amazing voice singing on stage. I couldn’t see very well but I could distinctively say, it was indeed a very cute boy singing and playing his guitar. After church he came up to me and introduced himself. I couldn’t stop thinking about him for weeks! A few years went by and I would get so nervous to see him every Sunday and Wednesday nights at church. My mom and all my aunts would always tell me “Someday, you are going to marry that boy Shalea.” I would always play it off and say I didn’t like him like that, because he had a girlfriend at the time. He was the sweetest, cutest, most charming boy I had ever met. Being a sucker for musicians didn’t hurt either. We always had chemistry, always great friends. One summer night in 2002, Sean offered to take me home after my softball game. On the way home he looked at me and said “You know, if I didn’t have a girlfriend I would be with you.” I laughed, punched him and told him he was nuts. But in my heart there was nothing in the world I wanted more. We had a great summer hanging out getting to know each other more. By the end of that summer he had a new girlfriend…..me. He told all of our friends “In 2 years I am going to marry this girl!” We all laughed. We got married 2 years later in the spring of 2004. The end.
