Hello? Is anyone there?!

A little 2012 throwback!

Oh boy, it's been quite some time since I have posted on this little blog of mine. Honestly, I have been so busy writing blog posts for The Greatest Candle's blog that I just don't seem to have the energy to write even more on here! Life lately has been pretty busy, routine and a little mundane but isn't that kind of what life is about?

I decided to write on here today because it marks seven years since went on our first date. Whatttt?! I honestly can't believe how fast life is moving. It's crazy.

Anyways, lets talk a little bit about our first date! We had a huge four-in-one date night, we started off our night with some dinner at jackastors and I remember clearly that both of us got the bowtie pasta (which is still one of my favourite meals!) after that we went to a movie, I can't remember the name right now but Gerard Butler was the main character. Once our movie was done, we weren't quite done with our date so we decided to go mini golfing in St. Jacobs. Here's the hilarious part, after we went mini golfing my mom happened to call me (and yes, I answered) and told me to go to the Portuguese Club to go dancing. I told Brent that I'd drop him so that I could meet up with my parents when he suggested that he'd come too, I was a little hesitant. I mean its a little weird for the guy you're going on a first date with to meet your parents but I took him anyways! We danced ALL night and had SO much fun! My parents LOVED him and couldn't stop talking about him the next day!

It's funny how things work out, I never in a million years would have done that with any other guy. I guess you can say it was fate. A little back story as to why November 7th is so important to my family. My brother died on November 2nd 1990 and was buried on November 7th, that Saturday seven years ago was the first time my parents had gone out on that day. It was the first time that they were able to go out and enjoy themselves and to me it was kind of fate because they met their future son in law. My parents truly see Brent as the son they didn't get to have and cherish him greatly and if that's not special I don't know what is.

I sit here and can't help feeling grateful, I'm so lucky to be married to someone who is kind hearted, funny and who loves me so deeply. It's obvious relationships have their ups and their downs but there is no one else I would rather do life with. This coming Sunday is our seven year anniversary and I am so excited to celebrate with him.

It has been the best seven years of my life.
