As of yesterday, my husband and I have been together for six years. On February 18, 2006, we went on our first date. He took me to Olive Garden, which is now one of our favorite restaurants.
I remember being all nervous and giddy at the same time. We even had a discussion in the car on the way to the restaurant on whether or not he’d kiss me at the end of the date (which he did ). It seems so corny now, but it was so funny back then.
We have been through a lot in the time we have been together, and I couldn’t ask for a better man to be by my side. He is a wonderful husband and a great father. We didn’t do anything special for the occasion, but just acknowledging it and reflecting on the time we have spent together is fun.
My mom thinks it’s silly that we even remember the date, but I think it’s just as important as our wedding day. After all, February 18 is the day it all began.
Happy Anniversary James!!
