DAY TWENTY-FIVE – Surprise! What surprised you in 2011? Did you do something unexpected? Or perhaps some life event/milestone snuck up on you? How did you handle it? How did it turn out?
The best surprise I got this year was when Michael didn’t tell me he was taking off of work and drove to Maryland to spend time with me on our 5 year anniversary.
I was teaching a summer course that day when he gave me a call. He asked what I was doing that day and then told me that he was 20 mins away. 🙂
This was an awesome surprise because I didn’t think he would have been able to take off of work (this was back when he was still relatively new at the job). He picked me up from campus, and then we spent the day watching Lost and getting yummy foods at the local diner.
Even though it was a pretty low-key day, the fact that we got to see each other on our special day was all that I needed. Five years is a long time to be with someone, so it definitely warranted some sort of celebration!
I wonder what surprise is in store for our six year anniversary…?
