A love story good enough to hang on your wall.

Conan lost me in a game of paper, rock, scissors.
His brother was supposed to ask me out that night; he had won fair and square.
Paper covers rock.

Conan shrugged his shoulders, said okay, then skipped class to call the number scratched on the yellow post-it pinned above his desk.
He defied rule #1 in the Great Big Book of Twin Brotherhood Code and Ethics of Dating...respect the results.

I said yes.
And thus began our story.



Love conquers all.

Having grown up with your hubby and his brother, I can so envision this exchange occurring. They are too funny. And I love the story!

I love that photo. And that you crafted a wallhanging out of your story. Good for Conan for putting his wife above his brother. Premarital loyalty.
