The Day Russell and Mer met

Four years ago today on May 7, 2005, Russell and I met. Amy Talbert, his cousin, introduced us. I used to go to Mamaw & Papaw Price's house a lot with Amy on Sundays for lunch. I saw Russell's senior picture and I just thought he was SO handsome! "I will have to meet him," I said to Amy. I met his parents, Ricky and Jackie once too. But I didn't think Russell would be interested in me. Well then Amy and I seriously started talking more about how Russell was and what he was like. The more I thought and talked about it, the more I was interested in meeting him. I got very anxious to call him and Mama always told me to "never call guys". But she actually wanted me to call Russell! So I called his house first. Jackie answered, I was totally embarrassed but I said, " Hi this is Meredith Jordan,is Russell there??" Jackie said, "Oh well he isn't but, do you want his cell number?" HA!! Anyway, I called and talked w/ him. We then called one another a little bit after that.

I called my cousin, Jennifer on May 7th to tell her how nervous I was. She said that she and Matt could go with us to El Dorado and see a movie. I felt a little relieved.
So we finally met! Russell came to my house in Camden and I was just SO nervous. I opened the door and I thought, "WOW he is SO TALL!" HA! Anyway, the two of us went to Bentley's and then back to my house. Matt and Jennifer met us there and we all went to El Dorado together. I was so excited. Matt and Jennifer didn't eat yet, so then we went to Good Times Grill and then to see Sahara at the theater. Jennifer took this picture of our blind date. I love this picture.

This picture was taken soon after we were dating. It was still May of 2005 and as you could tell, we fell in love for one another fast! The one below that, was taken 6 months after our first date at the Wilson Gardens in Magnolia.

Four years later, we are happily married and thank God every day for one another. Russell is the best man ever and I can't be more grateful for him than I am right now.
