Alternative post title: “Everything Happens for a Reason”
As a long time reader of the ‘Bee, I always like to get to know the couples I am reading about and I hope you do too; it puts everything in perspective. If you don’t like this kind of thing, then I’ve got plenty of wedding planning posts coming up soon!
Where we left off, I was telling you about how Mr. Sphinx and I started dating when I was a senior in high school, after meeting on a trip to Europe.
Most of our relationship has been long distance; we weren’t very far away but it did last for several years. I moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, for college for four years, and Sphinx worked in New Orleans. It’s only about an hour apart, but we were limited in how much we were able to see each other. He got plenty of frequent-driver miles on I-10 over those years, coming up to see me whenever I had a free-ish weekend. And of course, as a good LSU student I was able to make it work it by getting him some tickets to see his favorite football team play.
