Wedded Bliss

Thursday, October 11, 2012

Yesterday was my 2 year wedding anniversary with my amazing husband. December of this year, we will celebrate our 7th year dating. For those of you who don't know us, we met when I was 14 and he was 16. We went to the same high school and we dated each others friends. We never connected when we were young, but we were quite good friends. High school graduations came, and the world sent us off in different directions.

It would take 5 years before Brett and I even speak again. It was that menace Myspace, we have to thank. We reconnected through social media, he was living in Chicago and me in California. We did the long distance thing for 8 months, but knew we had to be together on a daily basis. By the end of 2006, he had convinced me to leave everything I'd ever know and move back to Chicago with him. This was one of the scariest moments of my life. I cried, a lot.

Looking back, I wasn't taking a gamble on Chicago, I was taking a risk on a relationship. One that was new and foreign to me. I threw up my hands and decided I was going to trust this crazy, passionate man, and in return he promised me all my dreams would come true... I have to say, he has lived up to the hype. On a daily basis he inspires me and he motivates me to be a better me. He is my best friend, my partner in crime, and my rock.

To celebrate our Anniversary, we went out for a seafood dinner Monday night. There are lots of great restaurants in LA, but we can't afford them :D We ended up going to Red Lobster, which I know isn't the classiest of joints, but we always enjoy it! I had my favorite, crab legs and Brett got all you can eat shrimp. It was tasty, and exactly what we wanted. I of course, was a little over dressed for such an establishment, but hey, that's what I do ;)
