I met my wife Kristen by random chance on a night out with friends. I was living a few hours away at the time and had decided that I was not interested in dating anyone for a while.  But as it so happened I found there was something special about her and I just could not let her get away without her phone number or arranging to meet again.   After working up the courage to be able to call her for the first time, I managed to stammer through a few conversations and arranged to see her again as soon as I could get back to Edmonton.  When we look back at our lives and see just how random it was for us to both be at the same place at the same time I believe it was fate that brought us together.  I realized without a doubt that she was the one for me when I found myself not wanting to be anywhere except where she was.  I constantly wanted to impress her but found nothing to be a chore as long as it made her happy.  Still today I get nervous and excited whenever I see her number show up on my phone or her vehicle pull into the driveway.  My favorite thing about us is that we enjoy being with each other no matter what we are doing.  Not every day can be a special occasion so enjoying all the small things as well as the big things is important.  Our first date was running errands at the mall and I still think that was my favorite date we have been on.  I am very happy I waited for the right person to come along to not only be my wife but my best friend who I never want to be without.  She makes me a better person and I will do anything for her.
