8 years ago today, I went to “The Secret Garden” play held at our high school. My friends were running late (and I was early, as usual) and I saw Mr. Knight chilling outside the theater. I walked up to him, M&M McFlurry in hand, and started chatting. He finished the rest of my McFlurry (and now finishes most my meals today). When it was time for the show to start and my friends were still not there, Mr. Knight and I walked into the theater and sat together. We cuddled during the show and exchanged phone numbers at the end of the night. I guess you can say, the rest is history!
Mr. Knight and I before our Junior Prom, about 7.5 years ago (wow I feel old!). Prom always fell around my birthday. I’m giving Mr. Knight a smooch after he just gave me a ring for my birthday. That’s totally my Grandma watching us in the background… awkward. Want to hear something cool? Mr. Knight’s sister (Sweet Bridesmaid) is a Junior in high school and just got a beautiful ring from her boyfriend for her birthday. Sooo sweet.

Every anniversary, I think back to that night and how things could have ended up differently for us if my friends had been on time for the play. It’s funny how things happen. Mr. Knight and I had been eyeing each other for years before that very night. Holding hands in Spanish class, slow dancing at homecoming, and passing notes to each other in Concert Band (yes… we were nerds). What was it about that night, which finally brought us together? Although Mr. Knight never “asked me out.” It was just inherent, we just knew (from that night on) we were a couple.
And you know what’s weirder? That following Friday we went and saw (I believe) the 2nd Harry Potter film. Guess what comes out this Friday? Why, it’s another Harry Potter movie. 8 years later and Harry Potter is STILL in theaters. Crazy.

After 8 wonderful years, I can easily say I’m more in love with Mr. Knight today then I was ever. Everyday I fall in love with something else about Mr. Knight. He truly is my best friend. I’m so excited for what’s to come in our lives together.
There is comfort in knowing that no matter where life takes us, I need not worry, all I need is my Knight to keep me happy. :)
Happy Date-iversary Darling!
