Yesterday David and I, as a couple, turned one. It was the anniversary of our first date. We had decided not to spend much money on gifts, because we just had Christmas, both of our birthdays are around this time, and Valentine’s Day is coming up as well. But when I first saw him at church, he had these for me, along with a really sweet card:
(There are twelve of them.) We spent the afternoon together doing some romantic things that I loved and may talk about at a later date. But for now I will just say that we decided that our next dog will be an English Bulldog named Cobbler. :)
In the evening we went back to the restaurant where we had our first date, The Melting Pot. It’s a delicious fondue place. Really comfortable, private, romantic, and fun. When we got to our table there were more roses waiting for me, and they took our picture and framed it for us:
Then I gave him the gift I made for him, which was a mix CD of all the songs that really remind me of him for one reason or another. I made a case for it, and a booklet to go inside. In the booklet I wrote down excerpts from my journal of when we first were getting together, through our first kiss, and the first time we said “I love you.” He loved it, and I was glad because I actually spent a lot of hours on it!
What can I say, I love him!
