An Anniversary

On this day, 5 years ago, I first met my husband in person. My life would never again be the same.

We met via an online web-based game. A silly little thing that I found interesting more for the intelligent nerdy conversation than for the actual game-play. He and I carried on a casual flirtation. Neither of us was looking for anything serious. After a couple of months of this, when I dropped my laptop and cracked the screen, he offered me a replacement monitor until I could get it fixed.

I made the 2 hour drive to his city, and he met just outside of town so that I could follow him to his office. I parked and got out of the car to say hello, and the very first thing that he did was kiss me. I can definitely say that I've never had an introduction quite like that! We had a long(ish) distance relationship for a while before I moved in with him in January of 2008.

We got married in October of last year, in a very unique and non-traditional ceremony. I wore pink, he and his groomsmen wore Harry Potter house ties and Converse Chuck Taylor's (and the uniqueness doesn't end there!). It was the most wonderful day of my life.

I am thankful for him every day. He is the most amazing person I have ever known, and I am a better person because of him.

I love you JP!
