Meeting Mark - erburns

Celebration Associated with Colorectal (Colon) Cancer. Posted on March 16, 2012 View this journey (4 Experiences)

In June 2011, I met the love of my life. Mark and I were both in my cousins wedding, and it just so happened my cousin and her now husband were trying to set us up. However, nobody really thought it would work; I was a 22 year old about to start my senior year in college and avoided my small, farm hometown at all costs. Mark is a 26 year old owner/operator of a family trucking company, and was too busy to sleep let alone date. But I drunkenly hit on him, and it took off from there. I decided to stay an extra while at home instead of go back to school, and we started seeing each other whenever we could. We talked every day, met each others family, he even let me ride in the truck with him a few times. When August rolled around and it was time for me to leave for school, we made promises to see each other often i.e. me mainly coming home since he worked on the weekends too. But I was okay with that; I'd only known him two months and he had changed me; I was a better person because of him. By October, I knew he was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with.
