Dating Days

We met when I was 15 and started working at Little Caesar's Pizza...the same place he worked. Because Little Caesar's was the best place to work and we really didn't do any "working" at all we just hung out at work. Everyone would come up there just to hang out.  At 15 this was the best job to have. And because of all the hanging out working Jason & I were able to become good friends.

The summer after my high school graduation we started spending time together... not just at work. We had the best time hanging out and just getting to know each other aside from the work stuff. Before we knew it we were dating and together ALL the time!

 I really don't remember the exact moment that we officially started dating. But I do know that when I was 16 I told all of my friends I would one day marry Jason. They all laughed because at this point we weren't even dating. It took almost 2 years, but we did start dating! 

During the shuffle of life we have lost the spontaneity of dating. I am sure it has something to do with the responsibilities of being an adult and not to mention our precious 2 year old Jake. It makes it a little harder to head out for a late dinner when you have to get a baby sitter or you are tired from the day.

But this is definitely something that I will be focusing on now that I have had to reflect. I am sure we still won't be as spontaneous and carefree as when we were "just" dating, but I know there is a way to have a happy medium with where we are now.
