I couldn't be happier today! My David and I are celebrating our 5th Anniversary!
It seems like just yesterday that we met in University—I, keenly focused on my studies, and David, outgoing, intelligent, and the most talented designer in the program. He caught my attention, though, I didn't let on. That's right, I played hard to get for, oh, a month of two. Our sometimes deep, sometimes light, late night chats, my glances during lectures, and his mischievous (dropping a penny in my boot, and I didn't even know it!) and unexpected sense of humour made me realize that I was missing out on a really fun relationship.
It was the wee hours of the morning, February 17th, 2005, that I opened my inbox to find a message from him. Nothing could have prepared me for that moment...I opened the message to find a beautiful, and I mean beautiful, Valentine's Day card, designed especially for me...complete with a sweet illustration, a poem, and note—all in an array of pink, black and white. As tears were filling in my eyes, I thanked God for sending me this very special person. This person who, in such a short period of time, had made such a strong impression on me.
Since then, our strong bond has been built upon mutual respect, appreciation for one another, and a love so, so strong. Every once in awhile, I look back on my journal entries, outlining momentous occasions, challenges, fun times, and the beautiful, special moments that we have shared over the past 5 years. We are fortunate enough to see each other everyday, as we share an office space, and even work on some projects together...and even now, I wake up every single morning, so happy to be alive, and so blessed to be able to share my life with the most indescribable, amazing man...
