This Is How We Met

This Is How We Met

Today I’m so happy to be over at the lovely and talented Leigh Kramer’s blog sharing the story of how I met my husband for her This Is How We Met series. We met in high school, but before you say awww, you should know we got off to a pretty rough start.

Here’s the beginning:

The fall of senior year, my high school English teacher broke our class into small groups to do little skits on MacBeth. I was with 5 people I knew, and one I didn’t–an unfamiliar boy who, so I’d heard, had transferred in the year before. My friend and I were making the arrangements for the group meeting, dividing up which people to call. I drew the short straw and had to call the boy.

We’d never talked at school; I wasn’t sure if he knew who I was. But I called, and explained that most of us could meet before school to run through our skit. I was unprepared for his response: “I can’t be there, I have to take my sister to school then. Tell them you couldn’t get ahold of me, okay? Just tell them we never talked.”

Head on over to Leigh’s blog to read the rest!

    So glad that you are a part of this series. I was a little sad not to here your story in the first “round,” and so glad that she’s keeping the series going so I can hear the love stories of some of my favorites!!

    Anne, that’s a great story and greatly told too! I agree with your husband: High School guys are idiots half the time. Some of us more than that.

    Oh, Anne! I am grinning ear-to-ear already and haven’t even read the whole story yet! πŸ™‚ I love a good love story and I just love, love, love the picture of the two of you! You both look SO young! And that boy doesn’t even look like Will!
