So today is my one year anniversary with Mona. Wow, a year. Time sure flies.
On Friday we recreated our first date: went to the same restaurant and hotel bar afterward for a drink. Then unlike our first date, we spent the night together.
Today is the actual anniversary and I saw her today too. I gave her a card and few gifts. I bought a few knick knacks. The centerpiece gift was a Powerpoint collage, retracing many of our big dates with pictures. I had it printed and bound at Staples. She called it the “best gift ever.”
However, she did not get me any gifts. I got a card which was sweet. I didn’t mind no gifts, we hadn’t discussed gifts. She didn’t even realize to get me some. It’s ok. It’s only our first dating anniversary.
Part of me can’t believe I’ve had a year long courtship. That’s a breakthrough for me, as I’ve mentioned on many occasions.
And today I came clean. When we first started dating, I blogged about having stretched truths about my longest relationships. Today she asked me and I decided enough was enough. I told her the details about the women I exaggerated about. She didn’t seem phased at all.
I’m in love. Go figure. This is already a breakthrough year. Now let’s see what else I can do.
For giggles, here’s a link to my blog post about our first date a year ago.
