For the Love of Blogging-Day 4

Welcome to day 4 of For the Love of Blogging, a Valentine blogging challenge hosted by Oklahoma Women Bloggers.

Thursday: For the love of...LOVE! Share the greatest love story you know. It could be yours, your parents, or from a 90s chick flick starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal.

My junior year of college my husband and I worked for OK County. Though we parked in the same lot, shared friends, and had even been at some of the same social gatherings, we never were formerly introduced and never spoke for the first 4 years I worked there.

One day, I parked and noticed him pulling into his spot. I smiled, waved, and continued the several block walk to work. I wore a blue mini dress that caught his eye and unbeknownst to me, he became curious. (It didn't hurt that my backside rocked that minidress back then!!) *grin* When he got to his office, he called our mutual friend and my boss, Joe, and asked if Joe had noticed a girl with brown hair in a blue dress. The hub thought Joe knew me and that I worked on Joe's floor but wasn't sure. The whole day, 8AM to 5PM, Joe kept his eye out for a girl in a blue dress with brown hair. Toward the end of the day, I asked Joe a question (our desks faced each other), he looked up and the light bulb came on. He called the hub and said, "Do you mean Sabrina?" He described me and the hub confirmed that it was in fact me he was talking about. Joe laughed. "She's been sitting across from me all day."

So thanks to a blue dress and Joe finally opening his eyes, we are together over 7 years later. I thank God that He finally had us notice each other.
