Today is a double post, so don't forget to scroll down and check out the previous one! I also changed my blog design - I think it suits me better. :)
Hubby and I have postponed Valentine's Day this year. Put a down payment on a cruise, add a busy schedule to the mix, and you find yourself pushing Valentine's Day back to March, so you have the funds and time to do it right. We do, however, have the space in our budget to have nice dinner out with friends that night. We are looking forward to it.
Korie and Frank have a very special story. Their lives are literally intertwined. It is hard to deny that they are meant to be together.
Korie is my oldest friend. We were inseparable from fifth to eighth grade, until we went to different high schools. We lost touch, only to be reunited this past year by my second oldest friend, Camille (she didn't come to our school until seventh, and her and I went to the same high school, keeping in touch after graduation).
Frank was one of my brother's friends from our childhood church. They spent a lot of time together, and even had the same haircut at one point (creepy!).
Korie and Frank attended parties with my brother and I growning up, had dinner at the same table with us at our house, even slept in the rooms next to each other when my parents let us each have a friend over to spend the night. But they never payed any mind to one another.
Jeff lost touch with Frank, much like I did with Korie. But while Jeff and I were out of their lives, Korie and Frank met again, under different circumstances. It wasn't until after they started dating that Korie put two and two together - she had met this guy before! She had spent plenty of time with him already but never bothered to pay attention!
Now they are engaged. :)
Korie text me the other day with a very cute idea. We are making Valentine's Day cards for each other! Below are what I came up with. First is Hubby's card, then Korie's, then Frank's. I can't wait to see what Frank and Hubby come up with to give to us girls - neither of them is very crafty!
Sorry for the long post. I guess I am making up for lost time! Feel free to join the blog hop March 11th to 13th! I'll be there, ready to go!
Happy V Day!
