1,095 Days is 26,280 Hours, Which is Also 1,576,800 Minutes

Three years is roughly 1/10th of my life.  In those terms, it doesn’t sound like much, but a lot can happen in the span of three years.

On August 17, 2006, my friend Kenneth invited me to go out for drinks with some friends of his.  Only one person showed and when it was clear that her and I were hitting it off, Kenneth played his wingman role perfectly and headed home to get some sleep before his ‘early meeting’.  And so, on the night we met, Danielle and I also had our first date.

Three years later and it’s hard to imagine what life was like before we met, which is weird as there’s another 9/10 of my life that came before that.  Needless to say, it’s been the best 3 years of my life, which means I’m looking forward to that ratio growing smaller over the decades to come.

Sadly, Danielle’s employer has fought tooth and nail to separate us today.  She’s in London for a conference all week, leaving me home alone with Mojo.  So this post is less for all of you and more for her.

I may not see you tonight, but I thank God everyday that I saw you that night three years ago and that you fell as hard for me as I did for you.  I love you and miss you, so come home soon.

    This post reminds me of the opening song of Rent. You stayed home and watched it while Danielle was away, didn’t you?

    I was hanging out with Louis and Minerva in Montreal last weekend and remarking upon this particular set-up which, as set-ups go, has to be my best ever. 😉 Cheers to you guys.
