Our Love Story : Part 1

The Best Love Story : Part 1

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season are the Christmas movies that play all season long. I admit, I started watching them in October and feel no shame.

Christmas Movies Have the Best Love Stories

You need a certain type of mindset to watch a Christmas movie, because they are known for being super cheesy. You can’t sit down to watch a Christmas movie in a serious mood. You kind of watch Christmas movies with a whimsical mindset knowing that they are all pretty much the same story line with different actors and a different setting. They all start with the story line of two people whose paths randomly cross in some way, insert a cheesy attempt at a deep plot twist, then these two people end up madly in love. That’s it.

Christmas movies aren’t likely to make it to the big screen and you can’t expect Emmy awarding performances from most of them. You watch Christmas movies to feel good, but ultimately, you watch Christmas movies for the best love stories.

We all adore a great love story. It is something about peeping into the lives of others and learning about the magic that brought them together. Every love story is unique, and it is so interesting to hear how other couples started out.

How We Met

My husband and I have been married 7 years, as of this past September 21st. We now have two kids, ages 3 & 5, but how did all this begin? Many people know that we met in undergrad, but they don’t quite know how we ended up together. Were we college sweethearts? Did we fall madly in love during my last year of studies? Did we lose touch and reunite years after college? Did we get hooked up by a mutual friend?

Below, you can check out part 1 of at least 3 videos answering those questions and telling the beginning of our love story. In today’s video we talk about how it all started.

Annnnd just for kicks, If I had to name our love story, like a Christmas movie, I’d call it the "Holly Jolly DM".

Check it out and let me know what you think!
