Two and a half years
That’s how long I’ve known this little nut.
October 23rd, 2008 was quite a good day. And has led to sooo, so many other good days.
Two and a half years ago, I was a volunteer in the AmeriCorps…working my little bee-hind off in 4 jobs, splitting my time between Charlotte, NC and Rock Hill, SC. I hardly had time to breathe, let alone think about “meeting anyone.”
Nevertheless, two and a half years ago, I somehow managed time to squeeze in weekly Trivia every Thursday evening at a local bar in town, Big Daddy’s, with my new group of Charlotte friends.
Two and a half years ago today, I got a text from one my buddies telling me to drop by his apartment for a barbecue before trivia.
Two and a half years ago today, I attended that little barbecue shin-dig.
Two and a half years ago today, I walked onto the doorstep and into my friend’s apartment…an apartment that turned out to be the place where Ryan lived.
Two and a half years ago today, I met this guy…
…and he turned out to be the love of my life.
So needless to say, two and a half years ago today… my life changed for the better.
Let’s look at some highlights, shall we?
It’s so crazy to think that I’ve known Ryan for two and a half years. I feel so blessed, and I can’t ever imagine a day without him.
How did you meet your significant other? Anyone else meet ‘em completely out of the blue at a time when it was hard to carve out time to simply sleep?
And a random question: do any of you have a “good-side” when it comes to taking pictures? If it hasn’t become obvious from this post… the majority of our “monkey-arm” pictures are taken with me on the left and Ryan on the right. Is it a coincidence? Or is it due to the fact that the camera button is on the left hand side, and because I am the “Master Picture-Taker,” I must therefore end up on the left… Hmmmm. It’s a mystery the world may never know.
PS. I cannot thank you guys enough for all of the support and well-wishes you all left me in the comments section of my last post. It is amazing to see how many of you could relate, and it’s great to know I am not alone in this journey! Makes me love this little blogging community even more
