I love March. Spring is coming. It’s getting warmer and the frigid winter air is moving out finally.
I also love March because not only is it my birthday month, it’s also fiance and mine’s anniversary.
We have been together for 4 years. 4 years sounds like such a long time, but it doesn’t feel like that. I still remember when I met him at the gym. We had mutual friends through his fraternity and the guys had invited us to go, never intending a new romance start. I went to get away from doing homework that night. I just wanted to hang out.
Honestly, I thought he was too cute and out of my league. I have always been friends with guys, so I was very used to being in the “friend zone”. Well, we started talking. Watched a movie with the friends, and he invited me to dinner at the new thai restaurant in town (which was a big deal because the university we go to is in a VERY small tiny town, so a new restaurant is BIG).
Well, you know the rest. Dates, meet the parents, a few fights that test this new relationship, realizing we don’t want to be without each other. Yada yada.
4 years later, and we are two months away from our wedding, moving to a new town this summer for him to start law school, and trying to find a teaching job. Very much looking forward to it all.
And to top off the wonderful month, it was my birthday today! I know, most women as they get older, the dread birthdays, but I love them. Always have. I always joke that I will be the 80 year old woman in the nursing home still excited it’s my birthday. So to all of you who have a birthday today as well, I hope you had a great day!
I’m off to go sleep in tomorrow. Homemade french toast tomorrow morning and relaxing. Couldn’t be better. (I’ll post some more pictures this week.)
