525,600 Minutes

One year ago today I drove through a horrific ice storm to the middle of nowhere. The spacious bar was empty except for the pregnant bartender that was chain smoking Camels ... and him. Our first date. If the location was any indication, we were definitely in trouble. One patron who walked in later actually arrived On. His. Tractor.

Throughout the evening we talked, laughed and shot some pool. We drank some beers and flirted. He even got up the nerve to kiss me when he claims he's never been the first kiss initiator before. I've initiated many times and I was definitely too nervous that night. We made plans to see each other again that weekend...

It's been a very good year.

Here's how I know I'm up for another one:
I'm a planner. Must have a plan. Even if we have to change the plan and wing it at the last minute, I. Need. A. Plan.
SM is not a planner. In fact, even when I specifically ask him about plans he hedges around hating to commit to it, as if locking himself into a time will squoosh all the air out of his lungs. He'd much rather act in the moment.

We were discussing having an actual DATE this weekend to celebrate 1 year and Valentines Day. I wanted ideas of what to do so I could figure out a wardrobe. He was thwarting me at every turn and driving me absolutely ape-shit crazy!
Today I got this email-
