This love story is probably more dramatic than it needed to be, but it's still my favorite! We weren't high school sweet hearts. And we didn't fall in love in college. I told this guy "no" a bunch of times before I ever agreed to go on a date with him. But this man pursued and persisted. One time during his pursuit to date me Brad showed up at my apartment pool and texted me, "Hey, I'm at your pool and I have pizza!" (I guess he knew the way to my heart!) And after 2 years of putting him in the "friend zone" we fell in love + got married! No one has ever pursued and valued my heart like him!
