Today is the one year anniversary of Mr Monster and I going out on our official first date. Despite only a year going by, I feel that we have been best friends forever and spending time in his company has made this year the best of my life. I can’t wait to marry him.
As chance would have it, we have a picture of the moment we met, snapped by a friend of mine shortly before Christmas 2010. I stole his top hat on the dance floor in a nightclub and that was it, sparks flew, angels sang, fireworks exploded….although I did give him a fake name, and he gave me the wrong number so it wasn’t all perfect!
We tried to contact each other a few times after that first meeting but for various reasons we were both unsuccessful. until that is, he managed to get a text to me on Christmas day. We agreed to go out for drinks on Jan 2nd and have been together ever since. Allow me to take you on a pictorial journey of our monster 2011…
First picture of us as a couple, funnily enough, at the venue for our wedding reception!

So tonight, to celebrate we are off for a meal at the pub we went to for our first date. Who’d have thought that a year on we would be planning our wedding. It’s a funny old world!
