This is OUR story

Yesterday Brendan and I celebrated our three year anniversary. However our story stretches back a lot longer than that and if you have the time I would love to share it with you.

Brendan and I were born 6 days apart in the same hospital and our mothers were even in the same room at the hospital. We spent a few fleeting moments in the same room too before I was whisked off too celebrate my first christmas with my family.

Our paths crossed again when we were in Year Six. We went to different schools but were both making our confirmation together at the same church. On the day of our confirmation my mum told me that I had been in the same hospital room as a baby with the blonde haired boy and that I should go up and say hello. For some reason I plucked up the courage to go and talk to him and started with the great one liner "Hey, so our birthdays are pretty close together" (I was 12 at the time). To which he replied " Uh, do you know if they have cut the cake yet?" and ran off on me. I was humiliated to say the least, thanks mum.

Than when I got on the bus for my very first day of high school who should get on at the next stop, yup the blonde boy who had humiliated me at my confirmation. We didnt talk for awhile and I am not even sure if he recognised who I was but after awhile we got talking and became great friends. We even dated for a little while in Year Eight but spent most of high school as best friends.

After high school we remained good friends and both ended long term relationships. I moved to Canberra to start university and he went off to Scotland to live for a year. Through the whole time we would email each other a few times a week and call when we could afford it. After 9 months of not seeing each other I made the journey home to see him when he got back from Scotland. I dont know what it was when I saw him again but for some reason I just thought he was the one I wanted to be with and luckily he felt the same way.

We had a long distance relationship for a year and than finally Brendan moved to Canberra to study teaching and last year we moved in together. We have our ups and downs but the good always outweighs the bad and as cliche as it sounds I am extremely lucky to have my best friend as as a partner. I definately think fate intervened a number of times in my life to ensure that Brendan was apart of it.
