|Taken three days short of a year ago, but we still look the same... including me being in the third trimester.|
How we met: We met at an Evangelical Christian group on campus. He was telling someone that Masada was really a failed nuclear science program. As a history major, I found it quite entertaining.
When he first told me he liked me: I told him no and not ever. We were coming from quite different Christian spectrums (Orthodox and Pentecostal) and I didn't want to change for a guy. I did become Orthodox, but it was only through prayer and tons of study- his part in it was that I was interested in learning about a form of Christianity that I didn't know a lot about. As I learned more I felt compelled that it was true. Yeah, I liked him, but I wasn't going to give up my religion for him.
Sum up our relationship in the past two years: Got married, moved to seminary, had a baby, are having another baby.
He wears a dress because? It is not really a dress. It is a cassock- a religious garment worn by clergy on the Orthodox Christian Church. He is a seminarian and was recently ordained a deacon. (To compare it to Evangelical clergy, it is closer to being an Associate pastor- at least from my expereince.)
One thing he has helped me with: He has helped me to realize that I don't need to hide behind cosmetics. I was doing that a lot because I wasn't confident enough about myself. I still struggle with it, but he always helps pull me through. I don't think make-up is wrong though.
Random fact: He is super good at color coordination and knows more about Star Wars than I probably know about Jane Austen.
His weakness: Baby spit.
Our favorite place to go together: Just about anything that involves eating. At times we eat copious amounts of Chinese food.
My prediction in ten years: We will be working with some church and probably have a hundred kids.
