Almost 2 years ago… exactly (as I write this)… I sent a text message to a beautiful woman.
The message read, “standby for a knock at your door.”
She didn’t get the message till 4 or 5 hours later.
But in the meantime I met and got to know this same beautiful woman over a dinner at Blue Mesa, a trolley ride and coffee at Cafe Brazil.
Yup. 2 years ago today I met my wife for the very first time… in person that is.
Come to find out later – she’s not a big fan of Blue Mesa and she had a strict one-date rule. If she wasn’t impressed on the first date – you’re done – you’re through – no more attention from her.
Yet some how another I managed to impress her with not knowing where to board the trolley and running out of things to do by 8:30 p.m…. luckily you can always count on Cafe Brazil (or maybe it was the singing of the Aladdin theme that impressed her — doubtful).
Now after knowing her for two years its amazing to think about all the changes that have happened in our lives – and all for the better.
I can’t imagine my life any other way than with her by my side.
Happy “unofficial anniversary” Laurie. You are the pride of my life. I love you more than I ever thought possible!
