Hello my name is Courtney and I’m over at Sweet Souther Gumption
Here’s how my love store began:
As I was sitting at a friend’s house on a cold winter afternoon when this tall and strikingly handsome young man walked in the door and smiled at me. The shy me bit her lip, pretended not to notice him, and looked away. We began dating in high school, but we drifted apart over time. I still had a good bit of growing up to do and he was only the second boyfriend I had ever had. I was heartbroken over the loss of not only a man I knew I loved deeply but also a friendship of a good man that I admired so deeply. When you’re sixteen the whole world seems so different. When breakups happen, it can really pull at the heartstrings.
Fast forward to 2014. We, in the most unlikely of ways, met up again and picked back up right where we left off all those years ago. The only difference is we have both grown. We’ve lived and loved and made mistakes but in the end, love defies all. My husband, Shane, and I couldn’t be more opposite if we tried! That is what I love about him most. I am an introvert, a deep thinker, I’m cautious of all things and people, and I write and read with passion. My husband is a loud individual, a social butterfly, he knows no strangers, he likes the UFC, working on his truck and in the yard, not reading or writing. He is quick to jump to a decision and not think things through. We really are two beings that are one, even though we are not the same. I always say has the talk of a great salesman. He can talk someone into anything. He will make you feel great about anything! The times I doubt myself or my abilities he is always there to make me feel like I am on top of the world.
Although there are times when his extroverted tendencies cause me to feel quite overwhelmed and exhausted, he has taught me to become more outgoing and that has helped with my anxiety.
He is the ying to my yang as I say. He completes me as I do him. He is everything I am not as I am everything he is not. We are a team, best friends, and lovers. How amazing is that!
