Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s my love story.

I met my wonderful husband on New Years Eve 2007. It was a party we both almost didn’t attend. A masquerade ball, where the ratio of women to men was about 4:1. I didn’t expect to meet anyone!
We had some mutual friends, ended up talking a lot, and he asked for my number.
Our first date happened a few days later. I really wasn’t sure if I liked him. He was quite different than the guys I usually dated.
But our first date was great! I stayed out later than I planned, and we got along so well.
Our second date went even better.
I guess we both had fun, because we were together a lot after that.

We got engaged on October 25 th 2009. We finally had a pleasant autumn day and went for a walk by the river. I had a feeling it was coming, and I was pretty excited when he asked!!
We planned our wedding for the following year. September 11 th 2010.
It was lovely. I was so happy I found my best friend to spend the rest of my life with.

IMG_8368-0We had a wonderful honeymoon in Mexico.
We had bought a lovely house, and enjoying every minute.
We planned a European vacation.
My husband had a surprise for me. He had been saving aeroplan miles for years, and used them all to get us first class tickets. It was fantastic. An amazing trip. Paris, Barcelona, Nice, German Black Forest area ( a lot Steve’s family still lives here) and Berlin.

While in Germany, I realized something was off. I realized it was more than jet lag making me so darn tired. It was more than new foods making me queezy.
Took the test that morning in the little “hutta” in Ofenburg, and now, life was going to change again!! I was not sure how far along, but I was definitely pregnant. And that part of my life will be a future post!

  1. I found your blog accidentally and enjoyed the bits I had read. Today’s story made me realize we are colleagues! I never connected the name with the PACU nurse! I assume you never connected mine to the Bone Room!
