In 2007, some girlfriends and I took a trip from Florida to New Jersey to go to 3 day festival. It was an excruciating 18 hour trip filled with some pretty spectacular adventures. While at Bamboozle,CP and I met by chance when the ride me and my friends had taken to Bamboozle left us stranded there in order to go to the City.
Perchance, one of my friends called on a friend to come pick them up and he relinquished that duty to CP. CP and I remained friends but we were respectfully dating other people at the time. When we were both crushed by our significant others, we turned to each other for support and friendship.
Initially, our friendship was based on pure sarcasm. We would stay up late talking and spending half our days sending messages to each other. Eventually our relationship blossomed into what it is today.
My favorite day of any year is Friday the 13th. I was born on Friday the 13th and my mom always jokes that during birth she begged the doctor to wait one more day.
My favorite number is 13 and when that special day comes around…nothing makes me happier.
On Friday, April 13th, 2012 I had a half day at work and after coming back from a Bowling activity with my co-workers, I found a note on the door that asked her to join CP in the backyard. When I entered the house Saves the Day “Nightingale” was playing inside, a song I had told CP I wanted to play at my wedding some day. As I made my way to the backyard, I found a path of gerber daisies leading to the fire pit which had also been filled with the flower, my favorite. CP had dressed, our yorkie, Buckley and, mini dober,Luna in bow ties and made a sign that said “13 Reasons You Should Marry Me.” He finished the list with “Oh yeah, I also got you this…” and pulled out the ring.
