It was a long day of painting during the Summer of 2014 when Spencer and Holly met, working together with another individual while passing the time by listening to music.
As the days went on, Holly headed back to college, as Spencer set up for the new winter season. A few short months later, Holly returned to work as a night shift manager, but Spencer was on the morning shift, leaving little time for them to see one another, other than between shift changes.
She was afraid that she looked terrifying, thinking sarcastically to herself, “Great. What a great first impression.”
Luckily, their dear and mutual friend, the not-so-shy Sara B., took it upon herself to set them up, and around that following Christmas, the soon-to-be lovers began chatting through messages on Facebook.
The couple’s first date was a fun-filled skiing trip, but upon looking into the mirror after a cold and misty rain, Holly realized her mascara had run all over her face. It was also obvious that her good hair day had become a bad one! She was afraid that she looked terrifying, thinking sarcastically to herself, “Great. What a great first impression.” She then wondered why Spencer didn’t say anything about any of it.
Looking back two years later, the answer to that question is clear; they truly love one another for who they are and who they have become.
