The "One"

With Valentine's Day around the corner I started to reflect on my relationship with my husband.

We met in college and have been together ever since. I actually remember the exact time when I finally knew he was the "one".

It was my junior year and I had an apartment off campus. I never stayed in that apartment. I usually always stayed with Jason. Judge me if you will but it worked for us. Since I was always at his apartment we split the cost of our groceries. We both had jobs (at the same place; yep one of those 24-7 couples) and got paid every two weeks. Well, I guess we spent too much money on college neccessaties one week because we were both broke!

Yes, we could have called our parents but we decided that we would work it out ourselves.  We had $10 to our names.  Not a lot when you think you need to eat at least 2x a day.  Jason agreed to take the money to the store and get us some essentials.  We ended up with bread, peanut butter, jelly and a case of ramen noodles. Candle light dinners with ramen noodles was what our week consisted of.  Nothing special but it was enough. 

You may be wondering how this story relates to how I knew he was the "one".  We both took a horrible situation (when you are college students having no money is one of the worst things) and worked it out together.  That week of eating ramen and pb and js with Jason made me realize that we could get through anything together.  All we really needed was each other

Now it seems like such a small thing seeing that we have been through so much more together.  You can say that we definitely fell in love forever over ramen noodles :)

That is such a sweet story! What a wonderful way for you to know that he is "the one" for you...if y'all can get through the hard times and make romantic candle-lit dinners out of ramen can do pretty much anything!

Thanks for sharing your sweet story! I hope y'all are having a very blessed day!
