Six Years Ago [Tomorrow] // Happy Friday

I know some people might think it's somewhat lame or weird that I still count this day as anything but six years ago tomorrow was one of the biggest and most important days of my life.

Six years ago tomorrow the hubs and I went on our very first date.

The day my daughter was born was a very important day. The day we got married was a very important day. The day this little boy is born will be a very important day. But none of those days would have ever happened had it not been for this day.

I'm not exactly known as the bravest person ever. I was always afraid to go outside my comfort zone. I was good with the little box I put myself into. But then I decided to go outside that box. I decided to be brave and that's how I ended up on match.com. Even braver was making the first move and reaching out to this boy who showed up on my daily five.

Some people thought that we were crazy. Some people had their doubts about us lasting. When we met it was still early in the online dating world and a lot of people were uncertain about that path. Since it has become more and more popular to meet online.

But we have lasted. We have evolved as a couple. We certainly aren't the same people who met through a dating site six years ago. But we work. And we have this beautiful life. We have had our ups and downs. We have fought. We have laughed. We have discovered our dreams and what we want for our lives separate and what we want for our lives together. We have had to deal with heartbreak and loss. We have had many many more good times.

To me that day six years ago changed my life. It changed the path I was on. It changed who I was. It gave me the life I have now. It gave me the love of my life. It gave me a beautiful daughter and soon a son. It was because of that day that all my good days have happened. It was because of that day that I have this life.


So to you who think it's lame or weird to count this day as anything, what is your day? What day changed your life forever?

Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday!
