I remember the day perfectly. I had spent all day working at the pizza/ice cream shop where I worked 40-50 hours a week the summer of 2004. It was my last day working there, because school was about to start. I remember having butterflies in my stomach the whole day at work, because I had a hot date for later that night ;-)
I got off work at 6, and had just enough time to get ready before Luke picked me up on our first date :-) We went to Tinseltown to see a movie. I remember most of the way there we talked about a young adult worship service our church was planning on beginning. It's crazy to think that now that service has been going on for almost 5 years, and Luke is the drummer for the worship band.
The movie we went to see was "The Village." It was a really ridiculous movie, and we both hated it. But we still both had a perfect evening. After the movie, Luke dropped me off at home, and I remember not wanting the night to end!
Who knew that that was the beginning of a relationship that would last a lifetime? Well, I did actually :-) I just KNEW that Luke and I would end up together. I even wrote about it in my journal later that night.
I can't believe we've been together for 5 years now! That's 60 months. 1,825 days. 43,800 hours. 2,628,000 minutes. 157,680,000 seconds. Crazy if you think about it like that! We have spent roughly 1/5 of our lives together. And it's just the beginning.
Here's to many more years together!!
