This morning I woke up to buckwheat pancakes and fresh berries (picture tonight when I talk about my meals) made by my husband Steve. He wanted to surprise me because today is the day that 4 years ago I met and started dated him. Steve and I met at a night club (only honesty here, we tell some relatives that we met at Pitt, because we both were at school there at the time). He asked for my number after we had spent 3 hours dancing together. When I left the night club I didn't think I would ever see or hear from him again. Well, we were married on May 12, 2007. I included some of our wedding photos (sorry they are small and hard to see, I took them off of Shutterfly, because I'm at work and those are the only photos I have access to).
I love this one, because we look so happy!
In St. Paul's Cathedral in Pittsburgh where we were married:
I like this one, although it looks all grainy here.
While Steve and I have had plenty of difficult times together over the years, we have also shared so many wonderful times together. Overall we have learn a lot about love and relationships along the way. I asked him on the car ride into work this morning if he thought it felt like less or more than 4 years, and he said less (I said more). I don't know if I said more because so many things have changed in our lives in the last four years or if I feel like he has always been a part of my life.
So Steve, thanks for continuing to date me even though you were scared on our first date at Dave and Buster's when I said I don't eat meat ;) Here is to hoping for a life together just as romantic and wonderful as the first year we spent together in 2005!
I'll post actual meals from the Clean Eating meal plan I have been following tonight!
