Sparkling Truth

Every couple has a story of how they met. Sometimes funny, other times disastrous, romantic or sweet. I like the story of how my husband and I met. When I tell it, I like to joke that I dazzled him with my sparkling, bubbly personality – or perhaps it was my horridly sparkling pink dress (insert cringe). We’re high school sweethearts but unlike many couples who met at school we didn’t actually attend the same schools. In fact, he lived over 100 miles away. So how did we meet? I’ll start at the beginning.

It was the homecoming dance of my junior year in high school. My date, a friend, had to cancel last minute and I almost decided to just skip the dance all together (no one wants to be a wall flower all night, right?). My girl friends talked me into going to the dance anyway, but I arrived over an hour late. Walking into the dance, I noticed this attractive boy who definitely wasn’t from our school. Thinking he was already taken I quickly forgot about him. It wasn’t long before the girls had filled me in and he not only introduced himself but asked me to dance.

Sparkling Truth

To make a long story short we ended up talking and dancing the night away. It wasn’t long until we were dating long distance and before I knew it, it was my wedding day and he was still my dancing partner.

I’m a firm believer in always having your sparkle on. If I hadn’t, I may have missed out on this crazy, beautiful life we live.  

When have you ever benefited from having your sparkle on?
