I Feel Pretty | Foxy

This past weekend, my husband and I celebrated a pretty special date – the anniversary of our first date!

We met 21 years ago on a blind date.  No, that’s not a typo and yes, there used to be such a thing as blind dates.  For you youngsters of the social media age, there was actually a time in life where you could go out with someone without already knowing what they looked like.

OK, enough with the history lesson, back to the story.

My neighbor and his best friend had been dating.  They asked the two of us to come along with them one night to hang out.  I didn’t really want to go but had nothing better to do.  My hubby didn’t want to go either.  But as fate would have it, we did and we totally hit it off.

The weird thing is, even though the evening went well, (we even kissed at the end of the night.  I was NOT a casual kisser so this was a big deal for me!),  he thought I wasn’t interested.  I thought he wasn’t either because it took two full days for him to call.

When he finally did, we started going out and I’d like to say the rest is history, because it kind of is.  Although, we did break up for five years before getting back together and getting married.  But that’s another story for another day.  (The short version is we were two teenagers with a little growing up to do.) 🙂

All I know is it is clear that God made us for each other and we were meant to be from that very first date, 21 years ago.

Here’s a dressier shorts look that I wore out to dinner on our date-iversary over the weekend.

Now to explain the “foxy” reference in the post title.  No, I don’t think I’m looking hot in my shorts or anything.  I’m feeling pretty foxy because of these pretty gold earrings from Foxy Originals.
