The following month (February), I flew back to Texas to meet his parents. We knew we didn’t want to wait long for me to meet them. It wasn’t fair.
I flew to his city first, getting to work alongside him for a few days before he could take vacation. We had a blast, and it was good to see his coworkers again!
(At an event for his work the night before we hit the road for San Antonio)
We started our roadtrip after 2 days to San Antonio to meet his parents. We had such a good time on the trip that I forgot to be nervous. That is, until we drove up to his parents house, and I had somehow discovered the function to swallow had eluded me.
I was so nervous! I had heard so much about them. But what if they didn’t like me?!
My fears were put to rest within a few minutes of walking through their front door. They made me feel so at ease. I loved being at their home.
My visit to San Antonio was filled with amazing homemade meals (both of them can COOK!!!!), a trip to the River Walk and the Alamo, hours of talking, and we were even joined by the rest of Roger’s family (his sister and brother-in-law and their two children).
I had the most wonderful time. Plus, I was in San Antonio over Valentine’s day. And Roger was my first boyfriend…so ya know…it was special!
He took me out to a lovely Italian restaurant on San Antonio’s River Walk, and gave me a beautiful necklace to match the ring and earrings he had given me at Christmas.
Being with his family made me realize how much I loved Roger, and how much I’d really like to become his wife!
Unfortunately, he wasn’t sure if I was ready and left the ring at home. I was only slightly disappointed. But I knew it would happen when the time was right.
Next up: The proposal.
