I knew my husband was "the one" from the first date. We were set up on a blind date, and by the end of that night, I drove home, called my BFF, and told her I'd just met the man I was going to marry.
All my friends and family thought I was insane. Husband is a Wildland Firefighter, and we met in the thick of fire season. He works 14-21 day assignments with only 2 days of R&R inbetween. During his fire assignments he typically has next to no cell service, and no internet acsess, or acsess to a landline. We were set up on our blind date while he was home on 2 days of R&R. I thought he was the most incredibly handsome man I'd ever seen! We started dinner at 6, shut the resteraunt down at 11, and talked in the parking lot for another two hours! I didn't want to leave his side! The next day we got together, and then he had to leave for another fire. I know everyone thought I was crazy waiting around on this wild and wooly firefighter from the backwoods of Idaho, but I knew he was special:)
Now we're married, have an amazing life together, and I'm going in tomorrow to be induced to give birth to our first daughter. He's my best friend, confidant, lover, and above all else, I trust him 100% with anything and everything. He accepts for who and what I am, and loves me all the same.
