{Jennifer and Anton – Love story contest winner}

I love this couple!  This is the second couple that won the love story contest, and these two are just absolutly adorable. They have been married for a little more than a year and it is very obvious to see that they are very much in love. The way Anton looks at Jennifer would produce ohh’s and ahh’s from any person who is the least bit romantic, it is so easy to see that the two of them adore each other.  Of course, I guess one can’t blame Anton, because Jennifer is absolutly stunning.  Here is the love story that Jennifer submitted to the contest.

On May 9, 2009, my life changed forever when God blessed me with the honor of looking into the eyes of my groom to say “I Do”.

Rewind a few years back to 2004, I had no idea that I was going to meet my best friend & future husband when I went to dinner with a group of my friends one summer evening at College. At a table that seats six, Anton was the only guy there. My first impression of him: he likes girls – lots of girls! I wasn’t interested in finding a boyfriend or a husband at the time; I was quite the nerd ;-) Anton, on the other hand, simply wants to meet lots of people & make new friends. I excused myself early from that dinner and didn’t give another thought about Anton.

So, Summer 2004 has ended, and Fall 2004 came rolling around. I studied diligently, and enjoyed meeting new roommates & classmates for the semester. One Sunday evening after church, I was standing in line at the College cafeteria, just wanting to grab a quick bite to eat so I can head back to my dorm room to study (told ya I was the nerd ^.^) I looked over and Anton was right there – standing with a 3×5 card – memorizing something. We said hi and exchanged a few words. He told me how it is very difficult to memorize materials for tests. I then went on and offered my “expertise” on the effective & proper approach to memorization! LOL :-) Well – that “grabbing a quick bit to eat” intention actually turned out to be a “3-hr long” dinner conversation.

And now, seven years after our first encounter, I am married to a hard-working man with a generous and loving heart, full of compassion and a strong desire to please the our Lord. I am so blessed to have my best friend as my husband!!!
