One Year

Can you believe it's been a whole year? I certainly can't. So much has happened in the past year, so many wonderful memories. There were definitely moments I didn't think we would make it this far, but we have and we're still going strong. I'm more in love with him than ever.
This day one year ago, the bf (before he was the bf) came over to hang out and watch a movie at my apartment after work. We put on Hairspray, I remember because we didn't get all the way through it. Now, we'd been doing our dance for quite a while. He'd been there to help me move in to my fabulous new studio apartment. That was
the first day I really ever wanted to call him my boyfriend...I nearly slipped up then, it just felt so natural to have him there. We started playing tennis with some friends, we were playing 3 times a week at one point. About a month before we'd gone to happy hour at Casa with friends from work, and my friend Bee joined us. He flirted more with her than me that night, and paid her a lot of attention. While I thought it would be neat if two of my greatest friends got together, I was slightly jealous. I was used to having his full attention and the whole thing was rather disconcerting. To coin my phrase then, I was an attention whore...for his attention.

I laughed about it with Bee and the Sultan's Daughter.
Things continued, we talked ALL the time via text and im. I missed him when I wasn't talking to him. Now, you've probably heard me tell that I had a tendency to be skittish...which he knew. But he played it well, it got to the point where I was getting annoyed that he WASN'T making a move...which leads us to the night we watched Hairspray. We were cuddled on my bed watching the movie. I don't remember how it happened, but all I know is that for the millionth time he went 90% and I suddenly had a blast of courage and went the last 10% (it was a total Hitch moment) It was about dang time we finally kissed. Though, if you ask him about the story he'll tell you I attacked him. I think he was just over excited that it finally happened, I don't really think I attacked him. :)
Tonight he's taking me to the same Italian restaurant that he took me to for our one month date. I can't wait to be there again...and my tastebuds are definitely craving some chocolate crème brulée.

Happy Anniversary baby. I love you.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you both!

April-Thank you so much! It was delicious! We ended up being too full for dessert this time, but the chocolate creme brulee wasn't on the dessert cart so I wasn't too upset by it.
