Oh my gosh if there is one couple I have just LOVED to follow their relationship on social media since we first met its hands down Cayla and Ben. The way Ben so openly loved on Cayla is exactly how I hope to raise my boys!!! He is super thoughtful whether it be getting coffee or a new thing she needs for the gym and according to Cayla has really shown her a Christ like love here on Earth.
During the summer, I work as a Lieutenant for the oceanfront lifeguards. I was called down to the 15th street pier for a drunk guy who was causing problems because he apparently had a couple of kids with him. When I got there, my good friend Emily gave me a quick rundown of what was going on: this dude had been drinking all day, was watching his niece and nephew, tried getting into the water completely wasted and was being extremely belligerent towards the lifeguards. So, there I was with three police officers, a drunk guy and two kids. I noticed that the officers were pretty tied up with trying to figure out what was going on with this guy, so I kept the kids busy down by the water. Not long after, this super tall, dark and handsome officer walks down towards me. This is going to sound totally cliche and lame, but I kid you not, I was immediately attracted to Ben…so much so that I immediately went back to Emily to tell her how cute and dreamy he was and that he was probably a total jerk haha. He had this quiet confidence about him, a pretty alright smile, and was halfway decent at his job too…even though he was spending the majority of this case with me ;).
As the summer went on, my encounters with Ben kept occurring…he always seemed to be the officer coming to help me with different calls on the beach. However, one call completely unrelated to work involved my friend Emily and me. She’s known for locking herself out of her vehicle…so I decided this was the perfect time to get Ben to come save the day. One of my off-duty cop friends sent me his number so that I could ask him for help. Welp, I called him. But, the conversation went a little different from I had imagined. With a nervous voice, he muttered the words, “You’re a firefighter, don’t you know what to do?” Needless to say, I will give him a hard time about that for the rest of our lives.
