Our Last Anniversary
Four years ago today, Dan and I had our first date. We met up at a Barnes and Noble, and he gave me jasmine tea and an audio book, we walked around for awhile, and then made our way to Applebee’s for dinner. Dan ordered the chicken fingers, and, when the waitress asked him if he wanted a basket or a platter, he said it was a platter kind of night. I ordered something that neither of us can remember that wasn’t salad, and Dan liked that I didn’t order salad.
Afterwards, I gave him a drive home, and kissed him as we stood in the street outside of his house. I got lost on the way home. We had our second date two days later.
And that was it.
In 321, we’ll be getting married, and our dating anniversary will probably fall to the wayside. So, tonight, we’re going to do what we usually attempt to do but never quite succeed in doing every year: recreating our first date. Applebee’s chicken fingers platter – here we come!
Dan, happy anniversary. I’m continually happy that you are in my life, and I can’t wait to marry you.
How did you celebrate your last dating anniversary?
