Day 1316 – Did You Know We Met In A Bar?

Today marks the 6 year anniversary of meeting Bret. I can’t believe it’s been that long already. I love that I’ve known him almost as long as I’ve been shooting weddings. What a crazy dance it’s been so far!

So, here’s a little bit more about how we met…I know I keep hinting at this….I may never tell the full story online…we will always tell it in person…if asked. I love when people ask how we met…we give each other “that look” that says, are we telling the full story or the partial story? Well, today you’re getting the partial story. 😉

My dear friend (and one of my grooms) Dan mentioned he had a guy friend he thought I might like. So, we set up a blind date. Now, at this time, Bret was still living in California and was still in the Marines. He just happened to be in Virginia for some training in February of 2007. We met at the TGIFridays in Bel Air that crazy night. It was THE most awkward date I’ve ever had! AND I’m not going to lie to you, dear readers, when I first saw him, I was disappointed. My initial reaction was “Oh…that’s him??” And honestly, his reaction was pretty similar to mine. We did enjoy talking to each other though, so we exchanged numbers and the rest is history.

We don’t normally do much for this anniversary, but this year, we’re grabbing dinner AT TGIFridays!

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
