The Story of Us part 1

This weekend we went to a wedding of goof friends of ours.
Clearly this is the second wedding I went to since my own.
Holy cow they are so emotional. I have known my friend since high school and I've been around through a few of her relationships. So to see how she was marrying the love of her life made me so happy, and sappy of course.
My husband was on the grooms side wedding party and when the pastor was saying his little talk on certain lovey things my husband would look at me and wink, and I realized how lucky I was to have him!
Andrew and I met my freshman year in college. He said that he had met me at the beginning of the year, in an elevator and I told him my name was Karla. It is Karla but thats my "middle" name. I guess I must have not been interested in him at that time since I gave him a name he could not look me up in school. So unlike me really. In fact I had never had a boyfriend at that point.
Fast forward to January and Andrew and I are in a class together-Music in the christian church. Clearly an elective course for me, possibly a required course for him, since he was a theology major.
We got to a tricky part in which you kinda had to know music, and since i've taken piano lessons and the flute for 6+ years I should know something about music right?
I did, and everyone was asking my questions to figure some scoring thing, and that's when Andrew was introduced to me.
We had a common friend and she told me that her friend Andrew wanted to know if I'd tutor him on this subject that we were doing in class. I agreed and the next day we were officially introduced. He was funny off the bat. We walked together that day, and then the next class period my friend told me he dropped the class.
Oh well I thought. I finished the class and gained a whole new love for hymns.
Around March I was walking into the girls dorm lobby with another friend and I hear a "hey gaby" I turn around and it was Andrew studying hebrew with his theology friends!
(Prior to this I had found him on myspace * way back i know* and then I guess he had deleted his page.)
I asked him what happened to his myspace and he said he deleted it but there was other ways to communicate and he flashed his phone in the air.
I was carrying clothes for my friends so I kinda yelled my number across the lobby and told him to call me so I can save it on my phone.
I ran up to my room and waited for his call. Meanwhile I was looking for my Anatomy and Physiology Lab homework that was due the next day, and I could NOT FIND IT. I was FREAKING OUT!!.
Then of course andrew called.
I must have been a total nut case saying who knows what about losing my homework and he just calmly asked if he could pray for me.
I was kinda stunned.
We were going to a Christian university and he was studying to be a pastor, but still it was new to me.
So he prayed, we said goodbye and then I of course found my homework.
We then began to talk more..............
