Creative Loving reader submissions: Tami & Coady

Legal billing assistant, 53, & bio engineer, 53, St. Petersburg

Met: At Eugene Field Elementary School

Together: 5 years in August

The story: Halfway through 1st grade… new boy gets on the school bus… no one will scoot over to let him sit down so I slide over next to the window and tell him he can sit with me. I then proceed to put my head on his shoulder. I’m not sure if I needed comforting that particular day, or if I was trying to comfort him on his first day in a new school. Fast forward to our 20th high school reunion where we run into each other and I think to myself, “He’s such a great guy. I bet he’d be a great husband.” Fast forward almost 10 years later and almost time for our 30-year high school reunion and I’m single (after two bad marriages) and “new” to FB and see he’s friends with one of my friends, so I send him a friend request. A month later he finally replies. We talk on the phone for months and then I take a trip to see him (I lived in FL and he’s in northern CA) and the rest is history. We were married on 8-10-12 in Vegas. He’s my rock. AND… he is, indeed, a truly great husband!
