With our anniversary tomorrow, I have found myself reminiscing over wedding pictures, mentally reviewing our first year as Mr. + Mrs. and remembering the beginning of us.
It all began with a wedding, where Travis was smitten with the girl in the red shoes. Dancing the night away, a simple chance meeting quickly grew into a future forever.
Honestly speaking, I thought my “ladies room challenge” would have ended the night of the wedding. But I quickly realized I was more interested than I first expected when I cancelled a Wild game date and invite him over for dinner three days later. Yes, I actually made dinner for our first date! Many months and countless moves later, it was becoming obvious to everyone that Travis wasn’t the only smitten one.
A wedding may have been how it all started, but it has been the memories we’ve shared and the lessons we’ve learned together that has made us who we are today. We now spend our winters on the slopes, our nights watching “What Not To Wear” and many summer WT weekends at the races, truly embracing each others hobbies and interests as our own. With initial thoughts of “it’s about time’ when Travis finally proposed, this girl in the red shoes has finally realized that we have only begun writing “our story” together. And hopefully my dancing partner will continue a life of being smitten.. and doing the dishes!
