Seven years. An Icee Date. Me and my Bear.

Today marks the day that my life would never be the same. Outside of my salvation, it is the most important day of my entire life. (Yes, I think it rates as high as our engagement and wedding day, because without this time, neither of those things would exist.)

Seven years ago, I met this sweet tall teady bear who would one day become my husband at summer camp.

We were 20 and 21, just kids. A few days later (aka today!) we became official. I still remember the conversation that made us official like it was yesterday.

It was during our first official icee date. If you grew up going to this certain Southern Baptist camp in Oklahoma, you totally know what I'm talking about.

From the moment we were together, we accepted each other for who we were, faults and all.

I got to do all the things that I'd wished and hoped for with a boy at this camp with B and I didn't even have to ask to do them! That later would be telling of our relationship.

But the biggest and most significant part of this day was that Brandon pursued me. I didn't have to chase him. I would consider it a life-altering moment for me.

So this post marks the beginning of the most wonderful experience of my life. To my future kids--if you're girls, don't ever accept less than what your daddy would give you and to my sons, don't ever go after the girl who pursues you, the other way around is far more rewarding.

To my sweet husband, I love you. I can't wait to see where our life together takes us next. I feel like we can take on the world.

Hi y'all! The name's Samantha. You can call me Sam if you like. I am a lover to a boy I met at Falls Creek in the summer of 2005, that is a student of Jesus, a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead, Democrat by party, blonde to the core, and oldies but goodies kind of girl.
