Happy Anniversary

Today is our wedding anniversary. We've just been to our favourite mexican restaurant. I had the usual Chicken Caesar Salad - gorgeous!
It's our fifteenth anniversary, but we were together for about three years before that, and we met nearly twenty four years ago, so we know each other pretty well.
We met at a writers' workshop in Leith. I'd joined it a few weeks previously, but I had done so because I had seen the notice in the community centre when I had gone along to join the art group. The art group clashed with something else, so I ended up going to the writers' workshop. If the art group hadn't clashed, my life would have gone in a completely different direction entirely. That was a real Sliding Doors moment.

I like the story of how you met. Very cool. It makes me think of all the connections that are missed, too.

It was the pivotal decision of my life. So many things resulted out of going there, that simply would not have happened otherwise.
