The Museum of Fat Love | On Exhibit | Grace and Andrew

Grace and Andrew

My husband Andrew and I met almost 10 years ago when I was a volunteer EMT, and he was a volunteer firefighter.&bsp; His sister volunteered with me, and he came to our station one night to ride on the ambulance.&bsp; We stayed up talking until 4 in the morning, and the rest is history.&bsp; He's told me since that he fell in love with me that first night.&bsp; We dated long-distance for about a year, then moved in together when he moved back to our hometown.&bsp; We've now been married for almost five years, and I can say with certainty this is the happiest I have ever been in my life.&bsp; Andrew is now a professional firefighter and I'm finishing up my PhD, and we are thinking of having kids in the next few years.&bsp; I was 180-190 lbs when we met (30 lbs heavier than my husband, who is a skinny guy), and at the time I was shocked that such a cute guy could ever be attracted to me.&bsp; I'm now about 50 lbs heavier, and (thanks in no small part to HAES) I am completely secure in who I am and I no longer have any doubt that such a cute guy could be attracted to me :)&bsp; We spend our time renovating our 90 year old brick row-house, canoeing, biking, volunteering together, and cooking crazy good food from our local farmer's market.&bsp; We are best friends, and I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him.
