One look can change your life.
So here’s the story of how we met. Gather around, it’s one of our favourites. I (Kez) worked Saturdays at a cafe/bakery when I was a teenager, and Sam played for the local football team on Saturdays too ⚽️ Every weekend before the game, he would come in for something greasy to cure his hangover from the night before.
I remember so clearly seeing this blonde haired, blue eyed guy walk into the cafe one Saturday, and as cliched as it sounds being immediately drawn to him 😍 I made a point of serving him first, and then I cornered my friend to find out who he was.
What I didn’t remember was that Sam had been into the cafe before, on a weekday with his boss for lunch. He first noticed me then, and decided to come back in every weekend from then on, dragging his mates with him. For the longest time, he had my number saved as ‘Bakery Girl’ in his phone!
A few months down the line, Sam asked me on a date. We went bowling, Sam ripped his jeans, and I laughed so hard I almost peed. Sam was everything that teenage me never thought I’d get, and to this day I still look at him and can’t quite believe how things have played out.
From a girl with a crush to a wife on a worldwide adventure, one look can change your life in ways you never imagined.
