April 2nd | Special Memories

Today - April 2nd - holds a special place in my heart :)

April 2, 2005
I went to work at the bank for my scheduled Saturday morning shift.
When I left the house it was cool, but totally normal for a Spring Ohio day.
By 1pm however, my car was covered in snow!
Lots and lots of snow!
My drive home took me 45 minutes instead of the normal 5 minutes.
I can remember it like it was yesterday.
Funny since that was 10 years ago today.
Why do I remember that day and the weather so well?
Because on that very day I answered the most important question I have ever been asked...

It truly feels like yesterday and ages ago all at the same time!

April 2, 2011
I decided to take a pregnancy test that morning just for the heck of it.
I knew that it was super early and most likely I would get a negative, but something in me just said do it!
I did it....and the word PREGNANT appeared within seconds! Not minutes people!
I couldn't believe me eyes!
I casually walked into our bedroom and gave Mic the news.
Of course another test was required to make sure that first one wasn't broken or something.
Sure enough the word PREGNANT appeared again :)

It is crazy that two of the most important moments in my life fell on the same exact date.
April 2nd will always hold a special place in my heart.

And as I was discussing this post with Mic, we pretty much determined that we possibly met for the very first time on April 2, 2001!
How nuts is that?

Check out all the other dates Mic and I have had in common over the years here.
Do you have any dates that coincide with other big events?
