11 Years Ago - Room 130

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

If you've ever read our engagement story you would know that Room 130 has a special meaning to Brandi and I. 11 years ago I peered through the door window of a physics class at Morehouse College. My life would never be the same. There in the middle of the class sat the Spelman woman of my dreams surrounded by at least 40 Morehouse guys.

Fast forward to 2008 and we're married!

Morehouse Homecoming was last weekend so Brandi and I decided to visit the place where we met. I have to admit that I got a little emotional but then I pulled it together and gave her a huge hug in front of the door. Ok, well maybe a little more than that - TMI. But its what I wanted to do 11 years ago the day she walked out of that door and said hi to me for the first time. My knees were weak and they still get weak every time she flashes that million dollar smile.

Love you babe!

Please, Hammer....I mean, Ross, don't hurt 'em! What you meant to say was that you made her weak in the knees, right...? Just kidding, Dr. Mrs...!!

I am going to be in the AU Center this weekend. I may have to now go find Room #130.

Great shot. I love the looks on both of your faces.

Hey Ross,
The picture of you and Brandi is just beautiful you can see the love all over your faces. I am so happy for both of you! As I am reading this I am really smiling, smiling to see how happy you and Brandi are, and I am listen to a song that absolutely must have written for her! It is a song by Kem off of his Kemistry album it is entitled YOU ARE. When you have a chance, after that looong day, sit down just you Brandi and that song, you couldn't end the day in a better way! :-) Continued happiness to you and Brandi.

You two are sooo beautiful!

While at the workshop, I asked Dr. Mrs. to tell me the story of how you two met (her version, of course). I was almost in tears myself at such a God ordained encounter of two spirits. And now you are One.

Like Spock used to say "Live long and prosper!"
