Here's a sneak peek from our soon to be published website - a refresher on how Gene and I met! (And no, there is no such thing as too much presence on the internet! Nothing wrong with a blog AND a separate wedding website!).
The Meeting - October 5, 2007.
So where did we meet? Where else? A bar! And not just any old bar, we met at the Dugout, a campus dive near Boston University where Gene works. While Gene was out celebrating the end of a busy period at work with coworkers, I was out with a big group of girlfriends watching the Red Sox in the playoffs. We were a group serious about our baseball, and our beer! Gene bravely approached the group and soon enough, we had hit it off. (Plus, Gene liked that I was drinking Stella Artois beer that night - lucky for me it wasn't a Bud Light night!). About a week later, we went out on our first date - dinner in Boston's North End (for some tasty Italian food!), a leisurely stroll through the Boston Common and Public Gardens, and we ended our night at a dessert restaurant called Finale (because chocolate is a food group!).
For our negative-versary, pre-wedding-versary - whatever you want to call it - on the date that is a full year before the wedding (which is just over two weeks away!), we've decided to go on our first date again. It should be fun - and I am especially looking forward to Finale!
In other ideas...incorporating a pet into a wedding has always been a popular idea. Even though Ashes looks pretty spiffy in a bow tie...I think he'll stay at home for the big day!
I will cut you in your sleep.
