First Kiss Anniversary

June 10th is a big day. For me, anyway. Brian thinks we should focus on celebrating our anniversary, which is on the 23rd of the same month, but I like to celebrate the "First Kiss Date".

Eight years ago, Brian took me out for a date. He put a blindfold around my eyes, then drove around in circles in a parking lot to throw me off guard. At the time, he hadn't learned that I have a terrible sense of direction. We ended up at Olive Garden, about 1/2 a mile from his apartment. After some delish Italian fare, we drove over to Charlotte Beach on Lake Ontario.
We walked along the pier, smelling the algae and hearing the pigeons screech. We sat down on the sand to enjoy the lake view. And then he kissed me. It was the first kiss of my life, and it blew me away. He sealed our fate with that kiss. Every year I want to relive that night. June 10th.

This week he asked me, "Are you sure you want to do the same thing AGAIN for the 8th time?".
Ummm. Are you crazy? Of course I do!

But this year the weather wasn't great, so we ended up at the Olive Garden and then Home Depot to do some leisurely shopping without the kids. (Thanks, Donna!) And then a quick stop at Abbott's for some ice cream. I got a nice kiss, but it was in the parking lot with cars pulling in and out. Abbott's is a hopping little spot. Not quite as romantic as that night long ago, but we celebrated and remembered.

That first kiss always remains special. Sorry the weather didn't cooperate, but I'm sure the shopping made up for it!

Is that you guys on the beach??? How sweet!!! I worked at Abbotts for a hundred summers in high school and hygiene school and somehow I managed to be much thinner than I am now :)

Yes! That is us on the beach... That picture was taken 3 years ago and I was pregnant with Joshua at the time. We hauled the tripod and camera around with us that year to the beach. It was worth it to get some pictures. I love pictures from behind, and one of my favorite wedding photos is of us walking hand in hand off into the distance.

Happy Happy Anniversary - Congrats.
