Our story begins quite a long time ago. Phil and I went to elementary school together.. kind of. There may have been a few years difference. I remember Phil in first grade, trouble as ever, while I was moving on to high school. Throughout the years we crossed paths a bit. I remember him buying his white jeep wrangler at the dealership I worked at. Pretty soon after that both of our lives took a different path. We both found ourselves with our lives turned upside down and trying to survive with two little children to raise. I was working a third job at Smiths grocery in Greensboro, where Phil was a frequent shopper. I ignored him, as I was pretty sure he was married and didn’t need that drama in my life! Pretty soon I received a Facebook message, where I soon learned that was not the case. I ignored him again… but he was persistent. I finally gave him a chance, and invited him to hang out at my cousins house for a weekend get together, and the rest is history!
