I remember that for some reason, I didn’t have my phone with me that night, and I didn’t have his phone number memorized, so I sent him an email thanking him for the beautiful flowers. He said it was nice to have someone to send flowers to. And we were both floating for I don’t know how long.
In many ways, these Valentine’s Day flowers were the beginning of us! I’m so glad he took that chance three years ago! I never would have imagined at the time that the next Valentine’s Day… we would spend together in Texas… sharing our first kiss… going out to a great restaurant and spending the evening wandering around a really cool art gallery.
