Today is the one year anniversary of my first date with Chris. If you don't know, Chris and I originally met on twitter. When I got laid off earlier that year I started using twitter more than I had in the past. And the great thing about twitter is how much easier it is to find and make new friends than it is with facebook.

So enter Chris. I must have tweeted something interesting at some point because he started following me. So I started following him back because really, that's how you make friends on twitter.

Several months went by and we'd comment occasionally on something one or the other said, but I never gave it any more thought. Next thing you know I'm being asked out on a date.

As you can see, a lot of things can happen in a year.  I went from being unemployed and single to  full-time (non-contract!) employment and sharing my life with someone special.

This has been a really eye-opening year in a lot of ways. I've learned a lot, grown a lot, and had a great time. I'm looking forward to the next year with Chris, and the one after that, and the one after that.  And I'm pretty sure he is too.
