I thought today would be the perfect day to blog about this because it is a special anniversary for us.
This is us, on our wedding day. It was nine years ago today that Frank called me for the first time. I think he called twice. I had met him once before. I was set up on a blind date with his roomate. I remember the first time I saw him. I will always remember the first time I saw him.
When I got home and listened to the message I remember smiling very big. He sounded so nervous. He wanted to know if I could have dinner with him that night. We did not have dinner that night, but the Tuesday after, and well, that was it. He was 21, I was 23. He was still in college having lots of fun. I had already graduated and had a full time job, but it just worked for us. Two and a half years later, we were married.
So to celebrate this day of love, and our "first time we talked on the phone" anniversary, I made hime a Valentine. Our favorite chocolate cake, with ganache. Very much like our wedding cake. No white cakes at this wedding. Chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting, and chocolate candies on the side. I had two pieces that night. I think that sounds good for tonight too.
Happy Valentine's day.
