One Year

One year and a little over one month ago, I was single and loving life.  I had just run my first half marathon and had come away from it with the best group of friends a person could ever ask for.  A group of friends that cared for me so much that they were really interested in finding me a nice guy to settle down with...  And that's how it all began...

I was having lunch with my good friend (and fellow runner) Meghan one afternoon when she brought someone to my attention.  He had been in our running class last spring and although had run with a different group, he was always smiling and so friendly.  Then...  He made this video And I was sold. (Seriously, watch the video. You'll see what I mean.) Cute? Check. Funny? Check. Cat? Check.

So, one Saturday afternoon at the beginning of last summer, I decided that I wanted to go to Bread & Cup (a local restaurant with awesome food) for wine and cheese that night. I asked on Facebook if anyone wanted to join me and the only person that responded was Aaron. We met, as friends (who didn't even really know each other), and ended up talking for hours. I knew there was something there. Two days later, he called to ask me out on a real date. And the rest is history. We have had a lot of ups and a few downs, but it's fair to say that today, we are as happy, or happier, than ever!

So, it's been a little more than a year, but tonight we are going back to Bread & Cup to celebrate our anniversary. I'm SO excited!!

Happy (Late) Anniversary, Aaron! And thanks to all of our family and friends who have celebrated with us and supported us over the last year! Now I just have to decide what to wear...

(Note: Yes, I realize that this is a dating anniversary and that some cynical people think it's silly to celebrate. I don't care! I think it's so important to celebrate as many good things in my life as possible. And this is a very good thing.)


  1. Happy (late) Anniversary to you too, babe. :)

  2. You guys are great together. Congratulations!

  3. Congrats to both of you!! What an awesome couple you are!!
