Project 52 - The eighth date

This week's date, over a cup of tea, we looked through a shoe box full of memories and letters from when we started going out and through our engagement.

This is one of our first 'dates'. No, that is not Tim on the Harley with me. He paid for me to go on a harley ride. It was one of my dreams. I had to hold onto some random guy... not quite what I had in mind. :)

Some of the first movies we saw together before we were actually going out.. I won a bet and Tim had to take me to 2 movies. He threw the results. :)

A certificate my sister made for us because we were bugging her so much being in love. Something that people find funny to know about us is that Tim and I were next door neighbours. We still lived at home with our parents and siblings when we started going out (and right through our engagement). Needless to say, my sister got over us being around all the time.
I had to get my wisdom teeth taken out not long after we started going out and I got a dozen roses for my trouble. This is the card I got. Funny. :)

As much fun as it was remembering where we have come from and what we did back then we are glad to be in this moment. We are going to be celebrating our ten year wedding anniversary in May. We are pretty proud of that. Life has certainly been a roller coaster ride, but the life we have now is more than we could have dreamed back then.

  2. Sounds like a great time. My hubby and I have gone through old notes and things from our dating days (we will celebrate our 7th anniversary this year) A lot of the memories and notes made us laugh. What were we thinking when we were younger?

  3. Gosh, I was wonderfully inventive back then!
