The Story of Us

Everyone loves a love story. Whether the story boasts of great feats to preserve love or soft moments that lead to romance, we all just love love. Actually, one of the first things I ask my couples is how they met! To me, it is such a good way to get to know them and their relationship! I especially like when they both tell “their side” of the story! haha.


Josh and I get asked about our love story all the time. It’s just one of those questions you ask couples. Ya know.. “So, how did you two meet?” It comes up a lot! We love telling it {and we have our sides of the story too. ;)}. So, we decided it would be fun to share it with you! Now, I will warn you, it’s quite a ride. So, hang on and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

The Broken Streak

Josh wrapped his arm around Samantha’s shoulder. “Love ya like a sister,” he said as he released from their side hug. They smiled before getting in their separate cars. As he drove away, he thought about the past few days. He had friendzoned her. And, he had expected it to be quite a blow. He knew she liked him. But, he was thankful that their friendship never seemed to waiver. A previous relationship had left him with questions an anxiety. So, it was just easier to be friends. There was no pressure. They could just hang out. They could be themselves. And, they could stay best friends.


Weeks went by and the two continued their streak. For the past month, they had seen each other almost every day. And, on the few days that they didn’t see each other, they talked constantly. It was their new norm. She still rode with him to the Tuesday studies. They even went to a movie alone. And, as always, they shamelessly flirted.


On one evening, the daylight faded as Josh drove home from Tennessee. He had been busy all day; the two had not been able to talk at all. The streak had been broken. There was a strange feeling in his chest that took him a moment to identify. He missed her. With this came the realization that a shift had taken place in their relationship. He thought to himself, “I don’t want to spend a day without her.” So, he picked up the phone and dialed her number. And without a second thought, he said, “I need to see you. I’m on my way.”
