The Finnegan's

My husband and I have been married for almost two year. We have a very unique story of how we met and I thought it would be fun to share it. I had been working for Police Dept in the city I grew up in when a fellow co-worker and friend of mine needed to create a myspace account so that she could keep in contact with her brother who was currently deployed overseas. I helped her create an account and as he and I were her only friends we added each other to be funny. This turned into simple comments and messages over myspace but I didn't think much about it until her and I planned a trip to Las Vegas. She then asked if her brother could come as he would be back from his deployment. How could I say no to a solider returning from war. I agreed and the simple comments and messages turned into long emails and a few phone conversations. When he came into town around Thanksgiving, we met and hit it off. For about a month after this meeting we exchanged constant text messages, emails, and phone conversations. I was falling for this guy. Then came our trip to Vegas. A few days before we left we went on our first official date. It was amazing to say the least. Vegas was a blast and somehow I knew I had found the person I wanted to be with. Luckily he felt the same way! Shortly after we got engaged and were married a total of 4 months after we met. Many thought we were crazy but we are happier than ever and never have had any doubts that we are the ones for each other

  1. That is such a sweet story! And totally random too. I love stories like this because there is always the "what if?" factor.
