Who are the DeStephano's, anyway?!?!

Part 1.

Bryan and I met nearly 10 years ago.

Strangely, I met his family before he and I met.

It's a twisted web of connections....
His brother was my then church's pastor. His Mother and I first crossed paths at my workplace as I tried to sell her smelly bath and body products. She purchased a pink elephant soap dish for her grandchild.....which is still in use. Bryan and his father sat just outside of the smelly store during that time. And his Mother coaxed Bryan to go into the store after she had left....what she expected him to do, I'm not quite sure. Some months later, Pastor's wife, Bryan's sister in law, just happened to be working at a place that I had become newly employed at. Pastor and Pastor's wife's child, who received the pink elephant soap dish that I had a hand in picking out, also attended said workplace.

Confused yet?

After some time, Pastor and Pastor's wife decided that Bryan and I should, at the least, meet. I'm fuzzy on the why and how this came about. After trying to turn down the offer repeatedly, I gave in.

We met for the first time in church. He talked more to my Father than I. I turned them down for lunch afterward. He called me on Thursday of that week. We went to dinner and a movie on the following Saturday. And that was just the beginning....

We were married 1 year, 1 month and 10 days after we first met.

It was perfect.
