“Book Lovers”

best of smart

We met while working together at a pizza place. I was working through college and he was working part-time to supplement his income. He told a friend that he liked me and so we began talking more and more. Finally, we went on a date and during the date he had mentioned how much he liked to read and some books that he enjoyed. I, an avid reader as well, had some books by that same author so I told him I would let him borrow them. After a few weeks, we continued talking and dating, he came to work (on a day he had off) and said he wanted to return the books and would just put them in my car. I handed him my keys and when I finished my shift I found the most beautiful rose and note.

Postscript: That was just the beginning of our story. We were married 4 years after this.
