writer’s workshop :: that day

March 18, 2010 in BF,writers workshop

I often find myself just staring at BF in admiration. Never in my life did I think I could or would love someone this much.

During these moments of adoration, the same thought is always running through my mind… How did I get this lucky? Never did I imagine that WE would be here, together, like this. Never.

Because it was so hard for me to imagine this point in my life, I am always asking BF about our first date. Specifically, I like to hear his point of view on the night.

I remember it vividly. I replay those first moments over and over again in my head. We had the most amazing dinner and the most amazing conversation. The food was incredible. But I was too nervous to eat any of it {so I took a to-go box & I downed it in the car on my way home from our date! – ha!}. We laughed and laughed and laughed.

He drove me back to my car. We talked outside for about an hour. I wanted him to kiss me. He didn’t {he would tell me on our second date that he wanted to kiss me, but didn’t want to break his “I don’t kiss on first dates rule”}.

I still remember the butterflies I had for days and days after that.

I never imagined that it would have lasted this long. The butterflies are still here. & they are here to stay. But I love thinking back to when it all started.

Inspired by the prompt “If you had to relive a day in your life what day would it be?” from Mama Kat’s Writers Workshop.

I wrote about meeting my boyfriend too πŸ™‚ I never imagined after all of the hurt and bad relationships I had in the past that I could grow to love someone so much!

What an awesome story!

=) I still get butterflies too. And I've known my guy for nearly six years now. (We haven't been together that long, but my gut knew long before my head did. That & we had some “life circumstances” that needed resolution. But that's another story for another day.)

That's sweet πŸ™‚ Having butterflies is the best feeling!

There must have really been a connection/attraction between you two up front–nerves around a person have never come between me and my dinner! Haha.
