Becoming Brett's Girlfriend
This is now Part III of the "Our Love Story" series that I am doing on this blog. I love reading about how people fell in love and the continuation of their love stories - it is something that I find to be truly inspiring. If you are just tuning in, you can find the first two parts here. If you have already read those two parts, I am so happy you are back!
About two or three weeks into Brett and I dating he wanted to meet up with me before class "to talk". I tried to quiet my panic as I wondered what this could be about. I was worried that he would want to stop seeing me, maybe the feelings I had for him weren't shared? We met outside the next day, under a big tree near my building. It was still beautiful out - being only mid-September. In my classic style I started to get super nervous. Brett started asking if everything was okay. I said "yes, I guess so..." then blurted out "I just feel like maybe you don't want to see me anymore." He gave me a bit of a shocked look and said "No, I was thinking maybe I could start calling you my girlfriend?"
I can't even explain how happy my heart was on that day. It was one of the first of many steps that led us to where we are today. Every time I walk past that tree I smile to myself. I hope that someday we can come back to campus and reminisce about that meeting under the tree.
