I made a CTMH Mickey Mouse Anniversary Card… Surprised at all? lol
Yeah, I didn’t think so. ;) But here’s why I did it….
6 years ago yesterday (August 3rd, 2010) was the day that Mickey Mouse and Close To My Heart introduced me to my future husband. 8:) <—smiley face with Mickey-Ears on.
It was the summer of 2010. I had just pushed the submit button on my registration for the 2011 CTMH Convention to Disneyland – Yay! But being a pretty carefree, lazy morning (even though I’m pretty sure I probably had better things to do), I started perusing profiles on a popular dating website. Kind’ve embarrassing to admit, really, but whatever. lol
Anyways, while I was looking around I came across a rather interesting profile that belonged to a pretty handsome man. The guy seemed down to earth (as much as you can in text) and he mentioned how much he loved Disneyland. …Wait what?! ME TOO! <3
Being that I had just registered for Convention, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and drop him an email to introduce myself. I made it a point to mention that I loved Disney and that I had just booked my upcoming trip to Disney for 2011! …That’s when the the “Cricut’s” started chirping. …Well, it’s probably spelled more like c-r-i-c-k-e-t-s but since I’m a paper-crafter… you get the jist. ;)
Anyways, several hours later he responded to my email and we started communicating back and forth… a lot! I fact, I think these may be the profile pictures we used…
In a few days we will celebrate 6 years of actually dating one another – crazy! Maybe I’ll even take the time to tell you a little bit more about how that day went down. lol I’m pretty sure I broke all the “blind date” rules in the book. Yikes! lol
