Those who knew The Captain and I in college will understand why it’s so appropriate that The Captain and I began our relationship on St. Paddy’s day. Some would say we like to indulge and party a bit, so you can imagine how the whole “let’s be boyfriend and girlfriend” speech went. As a matter of fact, I am not sure I totally remember! (Sad, but true!) That happened 10 years ago today!
I just can’t believe that this St. Patrick’s Day will mark ten years that Captain Awesome and I started our relationship. It took him a while to get the clue that he wanted to be “exclusive”, but I am so glad that he finally did. We have grown up together, and you have to agree that 10 years is pretty long for any relationship. Especially when you reach 10 years at 30!
Being an Irish girl myself, it’s nice to celebrate this holiday for multiple reasons. Plus, it’s always easy to remember! Although we’ve replaced this anniversary with our wedding one, we still make sure we celebrate today. As a matter of fact, mommy and daddy are going out to dinner tonight! Last year we did a bunch of shots to mark the day…this year may be a little more reserved. Mommy still has to wake up with her little man!
So for ten years the sorority girl, and the fraternity boy have made a life together. I wonder what our college selves would say if they knew that ten years later we’d be married with a baby! I’d like to think they knew we’d end up here all along.
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Happy St. Paddy’s Day and Happy Anniversary! I think your old selves knew just what they were doing 🙂
I love your story. Me and my boyfriend have a similar story and I was 20 when I first got with him too. We started dating on Valentines Day because of a huge party we were having where the alcohol was flowing heavily (even tho our officially anniversary isnt until a month later).
So thats great 🙂 I think you should def. have a cocktail or two tonight. So congrats to you guys!! 10 years is a long time.
Great story! Happy anniversary! Hubs proposed over St Patty’s Day 4 years ago, and we always celebrate that anniversary as well as our wedding anniversary…any excuse for a fun date night, right?!?!
Nice Jen and here is to many more St Paddy days together….I am 1/2 FYI.
Wow, ten years is a big one! That’s awesome. 🙂 Hope the celebration went well!
