On November 20th two years ago I sat at a cafe waiting for a guy who was a half hour late for our very first date. But the moment he walked in and we locked eyes all was forgiven. He had this sparkle in his eyes, a warm smile, he was tall and beautiful all I can remember was giggling nervously as he extended his arms for a hug. We grabbed some tea and sat in the back corner of the cafe and talked for the rest of the evening till we got kicked out because they were closing. The guy that I met that day with the sparkle in his eyes turned out to be the love of my life, Drew Anthuny.
That was the beginning of our love story.
Drew and I cherish the memory of our first date so much that we made it a tradition. Every November 20th we must go on a coffee shop date. This past Sunday was our second year- first date anniversary and we went to the Republic of Pie. We shared a Cookies and Cream pie, I sipped on some Blood Orange hot tea and he had a Dulce Latte. We sat in a corner, looked into each other’s eyes and pretended for a few minutes that we were meeting for the first time. As he looked at me I could still see that sparkle in his eyes. We stayed engaged in conversation for the rest of the evening till we got kicked out because they were closing. Exactly the same way it happened two years ago.
The only difference was that at the end of the night instead of going our separate ways, we headed to our home. The home we’ve shared for the past year.
The celebration wasn’t over there, once we got home we shared a romantic, warm, candle lit milk bath. The warm bubble bath was the perfect finish to the cold, rainy day. The music was set to old school Italian songs and the sound of rain drops coming from outside just made the night magical. Of course, we can’t forget about the wine. Drew is more of a sweet-red kind of guy and I’m more of a chardonnay kind of gal.
Needless to say, it was an unforgettable evening 😉
