There was this one time when a girl, who was a few days shy of her 18th birthday, went to a college party on 2424 Durham Street.
That night she met a boy, who had just turned 21.
That boy soon became her boyfriend, then later her fiance. Then, the same boy became her hardest breakup. But happily, her boyfriend again, a few months later. Then her fiance again. And then on October 28th, 2006, he became her husband.
A few years later, that boy (who was now a hard-working husband), became a papa to their adopted fur-baby. A few years after that, he became a papa again; this time to their baby girl.
Together, they have experienced love, friendship, hardship, a few bumps along the way, a lot of happiness, a fur-baby and a baby, and scrapbooks full of memories.
15 years have past since that fate-full night on 2424 Durham when they locked eyes, and never stopped thinking about one another. And today, they celebrate eight years of marriage.
Happy Anniversary to the boy with the striking blue eyes that made it hard to look away then, and still does. I cannot imagine my life, had I not been sitting with friends that night on the porch of 2424 Durham Street.
