Five years ago, more than three years after our first date, MacGyver unilaterally declared that I was "his girl." After years of back-and-forth, flip-flopping commitment phobia (on my part), he "put his foot down," so to speak. We were "official."
So today is our Miniversary. Unless the sitter falls through, we'll be going out tomorrow night to celebrate with some really good wine and some live jazz. Other than that, we're not doing a whole lot. We've been so busy lately, low key seems like the best bet.
This was supposed to be a longer post, but it took me so long to figure out what year we first became official, that I'm running out of time. I can't believe it's only been 5 years since that trip! It seems like so much longer. Then again, it's also hard to believe our first date was 8 years ago, too. That sounds like ancient history. It feels like I've always been with MacGyver, but at the same time it doesn't seem like it was all that long ago that I was relationship hopping and making boys cry like it was my job.
If you're feeling let down that this post isn't full of flowery gush or fun filled details, you can check out what we've done for Miniversaries past - including our super awesome Boston trip in 2010. Or you can delve into the conveluted path of how MacGyver and I ended up together. For now, though, I have to go. I have tons to get done today before I head home for a very special "lunch" with my MacGyver.
Happy Friday All!
