Sunshine and I had a two-month break in early 2009. Of course, that “break” was us actually breaking up.
I’m not going to re-hash things because the bottom line is that we both needed this time away. We didn’t realize it at the time, but this time apart was absolutely necessary for us to truly understand and appreciate what we had together. We needed to be apart to understand what we were missing during that time period.
And while people may roll their eyes at this, both Sunshine and I truly believe that fate…or the universe…brought us back together. We talked online and that conversation quickly escalated to the point where I went to go visit her again to see what could possibly happen next.
I’m so glad I did.
That weekend (May 22-24, 2009) was quickly deemed “The Best Weekend Ever“. It was a re-launch of our relationship…one that has grown and matured over time.
Obviously…six years later…it’s easy to see that it was the right decision to make. I moved to Halifax to be with her, we lived together, and then we eventually got married. So on our sixth “Best Weekend Ever” anniversary, please take a few minutes and click the links below. I recapped our original reunion in four separate blog posts, and I’m hopeful that you’ll be able to feel our happiness from reading my words and by viewing our pictures.
Happy 6th anniversary, Sunshine. We made it and I am thankful for that weekend every single day.
