30 years ago



It was December 14th, 1979. I was a senior in nursing school and had to repay a debt to my friend by going on a blind date that I wasn't looking forward to. My date had moved to Kansas City a few months earlier because of a job offer from Hallmark. My friend, Margo, had been trying to set us up for a month and I kept saying no. As it turned out, that was the evening that I met my future husband. We liked each other right away. We had a short engagement and were married in June of the next year.

Happy First Date Anniversary Warren!

Oh, Cat, even tho I haven't met either of you (yet) I suddenly burst into tears when I read this post.

I also tend to remember our first 'date' (i.e. the date we met) as our anniversary, more than our wedding date. I've got to send this link to my mom!

Happy First Date Anniversary. Even tho that period was not our civilisation's best, stylistically, (case in point, Warren's glasses), still, you two managed to look great.

Cat, I met my husband at a wedding. One of his friends married one of my friends and we were both in the line. I have one of their wedding photos framed with the two of us in it. It seems so odd to think that I did not even know who he was when the photo was taken. We met Sept 9, 1981. Our first date was Sept 22 of the same year and our 26th wedding anniversary was last week.
One more thing we have in common, we are both lucky in love.
Congratulations,
Kat
