Oh for Pete’s sake…
Randee and Mike met just out of college, while both taking a Consulting class for work. They were partnered together during a “How to give successful feedback” exercise and did so well at considering one another’s feelings and compromising that they figured “Hey, we’ve got this marriage thing in the bag! Let’s do this!” Okay…maybe it didn’t happen exactly like that. Maayyybe there was a four year period of dating and falling in love before he popped the question (in the sweetest of ways, btw), but you get the picture.
One of the things I really love about these two (and there are many) is how truly excited they are to be in one another’s presence. After four years, they are still sweet and cuddly and downright giddy to be snuggling with each other. Their favorite date nights involve solving crimes (read: snuggled up on the couch watching who-dunnit television shows) and elastic waist pants. Girl after my own heart, I tell ya. They are the poster couple for Paula Abdul’s ‘Opposites Attract’ (and yes, I recognize that this reference makes me old.) They are so very different in so many ways, and yet they just…fit.
They find joy in random little moments. They crack each other up. It’s really lovely to watch and be a part of.
Randee and Mike, after an afternoon with you, I felt as if we’d been friends for years. I’m so stinkin’ grateful that I get to know you, and watch your relationship and marriage grow over the years. Oh, and next time you’re in town, feel free to stop by any time and watch some Law & Order with me. Oh, and don’t forget the spandex. 😉
