Five years ago today Rob and I met for the first time. We met for a coffee close to my apartment at the time early in the afternoon on Saturday, Jan. 17th, 2004. The weather was much like it is today, cold and windy.
I remember sitting by the window watching for him (it was a blind date, but I had seen a picture) and being very nervous. When I saw him crossing the street I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest, and when he walked through the door I stuck my head even closer into my Chatelaine magazine, to catch my breath, I couldn't believe this hot rocker was meeting me!
Our first date for coffee lasted nine hours. We ended up going for dinner and then back to his house to watch a movie before he drove me home. Falling asleep that night I had the strangest sensation that my life had changed forever, and it has, in the best way.
