First Date Anniversary

Five years ago I was in Virginia meeting Carmen for the first time. My friend Karen shared a FB memory post from Feb 14, 2015:

I love to see people smile. And some smiles are so much more meaningful than others, when the smiler hasn't been able to smile for a while. Today I saw just such a wonderful smile that lit up a happy face, and it made me very happy.
I honestly don't know how it's been five years already. I was a mess back then and if I hadn't had Karen with me and Ed cheering me on back home.

All I know that I was broken hearted but when I sat on Carmen for the first time I felt my heart start to heal a bit.

boy she has changed


And here we are five years later, still together.

Me: Carmen do you know you have a strand of hay on your face?
Carmen: I hear that vertical stripes are slimming
 Both of us have grown together.

And, because it's valentine's day Irish also wants recommendation. After all he's the sweetest horse around.



Happy Valentines Day everyone!

  2. I can't believe it's been five years! I started following your blog when Carmen's seller shared it, and you were one of the people who made me think maybe, just maybe, I could have my own blog too 😁 happy 5 year Carmen-versary and also kisses to Irish!
