Year One

Just like everything in life, not everything goes according to plan.

We almost didn’t meet. You had to cancel Saturday but we both happened to be free on Friday, so we met a day earlier instead. Boy, we were both glad we did.

You surprised me with your cheery attitude. Right off the bat, you started our first date with a nice, big hug. You had this smile that somehow made me smile along with you. It was something I found myself looking forward to.

Conversation was great. You were chatty, I had a penchant for listening. I liked the sound of your voice. And your hilarious fake accents. We both spoke about ourselves, our previous experiences using ‘light’ and work.

At the end of the night, I walked you to your car, you dropped me off at mine.

And like our eyes did to begin the night, our lips met to end the night.

I think I said ‘I’ll see you around.’

Just like everything in life, not everything goes according to plan. Sometimes things turn out for the better.

Here’s to our first year.
