♥ Happy Valentine's Day ♥

Happy Valentine's Day!

In honor of this special lovers day, I thought I'd share a quick story about our very first date!
We met through a co-worker of mine. She had been asking me questions here & there and then finally admitted she wanted to 'set me up' with someone. I was skeptical. I was in college, had a job, had my freedom and wasn't really into dating. I was just going about my way. But alas, I agreed and the double date was set up with my co-workers daughter & her husband as we were all the same age.

I walked into K&B's house all nervous and shy. We were introduced for the first time and he handed me a single red rose with a smile. We decided on dinner & a movie and off we went!

I was so nervous at dinner and was thankful that K&B were with us as they 'broke the ice' a few times asking questions. I remember ordering a diet coke and squeezing my lemon into it and it squirted everywhere. haha! Chris laughed and said something like 'lemony fresh!'. We finished dinner & headed off to the movies.

We took our seats to watch Indecent Proposal (that is aging myself eh?). It looked like a good movie but as a first date movie.. yeah ummm, no! I squirmed in my seat so much during certain scenes thinking.. WHO PICKED THIS DAMN MOVIE!!?? I'm not sure I really even knew what the movie was about by the time it was done because my nerves were completely shot. 

We rode home, mostly in silence.
K&B said goodnight & walked in... Chris walked me to my jeep.
I thanked him for a nice night & the pretty rose.
I asked if he wanted my number, he told me he had already stolen it from K. *blush*
We both smiled.
I awkwardly played with my hands, fiddling with my keys.
He lifted my chin ....and then he kissed me.

the rest as they say, is history.
