Things that changed her life {part 1}

There are some moments that change your game, your view, your life.  They start out normally, but well, they never quite end that way, do they?  This is one of mine.


I was still technically dating my ex – you know, one of those whose name you don’t speak and you just don’t talk about in general. You know. But we were still technically together.

I was 20.

Luci and I were headed home for Memorial Day weekend. Camping trip, and her love interest at the time was coming to visit. I’d never met him and of course, he needed the best friend’s approval.

He brought his brother and cousin.

I was nervous as we pulled into the PDQ parking lot, Luci driving like her usual bat-out-of-hell self, music blaring, windows rolled down, stunna shades on.

That’s when I saw them, when I saw him. Cowboy hat, chocolate lab and a smile.

“This is gonna be trouble,” I told Luci.

We both laughed. Yeah, we thought to ourselves. It is gonna be trouble.

And it was. Three years later, The Boy is still trouble.


This post inspired by – and the intro paragraph & post title from – Amy at Just a Titch.

      @Luc, Yeah, it definitely was… It’s so weird to think back to then! So much has changed.

      @Amy — Just A Titch… Exactly! I just KNEW. I mean, I didn’t know we’d eventually move in together, buy a house and be where we are now. But I knew something was different. 🙂 Thanks for reading!
