Four years ago, I turned my cheek when my date at a Super Bowl party tried to kiss me.
That date is now my husband.
If you had told me then that I would be in a home with that same man hosting our own Super Bowl party, I would have scoffed. After all, that wasn’t in my plans.
Luckily he gave me another shot. Even though he still teases me about that night:)
You never really know what the future will hold. Be curious.
Last year’s Super Bowl was an exercise in trust for me, as my then-fiance and his cousin traveled to New Orleans for the game (and Mardi Gras).
That was a pivotal weekend for me in learning to trust myself and in layering positive memories over old.
You never really know what you’re capable of. Believe in yourself.
And tonight, when he kisses me, I won’t turn away. I’m no longer afraid of love.
