On this night, 6 years ago, Brent and I were outside on the deck in my backyard when we had the conversation and officially started dating. Right after the conversation, Brent noted, "Only 3 months 'til Christmas!" So, in case you were wondering, it's only 3 months until Christmas. :)
That was the beginning of quite a journey, with 4 years of long distance looming ahead of us, but here we are, 6 years later,we found ourselves married, sharing a small apartment in Maryland, and (at least I am) loving every minute of it. I feel so lucky to get to hang out with my best friend every day.
On this night last year, we were adjusting to a new state, new jobs, and celebrated with dinner at the Melting Pot.
On this Sunday night, Brent and I had the privilege of seeing a dear friend ordained as a minister. It is an honor to have been a part of the celebration, and I even got to taste-test a new recipe in the process (these iced pumpkin cookies are so delicious and easy!). He is however, beating me in our fantasy football match up right now. Hmm.
On this Sunday night, the Colts are winning for the first time this season, against the mighty Steelers, which makes it that much more exciting. We're entering the 4th quarter with a 3 point lead. Hoping we can hold 'em! Can't wait for Peyton to be back though. This Sunday of football is even sweeter considering the Patriots lost to the Bills earlier. I saw a t-shirt the other day that said "I have 2 favorite teams: The Red Sox and whoever beats the Yankees." I think I need one that says "I have 2 favorite teams: The Colts and whoever beats the Patriots." Go Bills!
On this Sunday night, I think I have lots for which to be thankful. :)
