My Life: Great Hearts Think Alike

Tuesday, February 14, 2012

In the spirit of valentine's day I figured I would share one of my favorite stories of me and Chip's early courtship days.  Like to hear it? Hear it goes (in my David Alan Grier voice from in living color, remember that show?)

Chip and I met at the end of our sophomore year in college which was spring of 1998

When the semester ended, I stayed at school to take a few summer classes and Chip went back home to Birmingham, Alabama to start his internship.

We wrote each other A LOT of letters.

One day, I decided to switch things up and send him a card.  I took a trip to Hallmark to find the perfect card that matched how I felt.  Came back home, signed it, and mailed it off.

Two days later, I got a card in the mail.  I thought it was a return to sender, but when I flipped the card over, it was addressed to me from Chip! (yes my maiden name is Player and no I wasn't a player *wink*).  I opened the envelope, and to my surprise it was the same exact card!

And if that's not crazy, they were both postmarked on the same day which means we had no clue that we were sending each other a card at all!

And there you have it!  One of my favorite memories!

Happy Valentines Day!
