First Kiss: 16 years ago

Sometimes I read my old journals.  
They are hilarious and stupid but kind of cute too.

Wednesday, August 23, 2000:
"Today was the best day of my life.  Christian kissed me!  
Finally FINALLY!  After a lovely evening drive in the convertible, 
we pulled into the driveway and all of a sudden he said:
 "Stephanie close your eyes".  Then he put his hands on my cheeks 
and pulled me close to him and he KISSED ME!!! (Then I drew about 400 hearts).
"It was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO wonderful and absolutely perfect. 
Like, this kiss should be in a movie it was that amazing 
and so ROMANTIC, now if he will just ask me to marry him". (Smiley face).  
"Then we finally got out of the car and he walked me to my door, 
but before I went inside, he grabbed me at the waist and we kissed again.
I seriously felt weak in my knees.  That's a real thing!"
 (Then I drew about 35 more hearts).
"He told me he had wanted to do that for so long, 
and he couldn't wait any longer.
I don't think he realizes how long I HAVE BEEN WAITING for that moment.
Can't wait to do it again tomorrow....and I hope forever."

 Christian and I got engaged almost a month later on September 30th, 2000.
We were married on December 16th, 2000.
Claire was born on October 29th, 2001.
When you know, you know.
