S: our first year together


1: The Beginning | It started with a wink... did say 1 in 5 relationships start online. We are definitely one of their success stories. Although if I hadn't messaged Mark first, who knows if he would have found me....he wasn't looking outside of Burlington for love! | Milestones May 7, 2011 Mark met my best friend Colleen for the first time. Big thumbs up from Col! | My first TFC game May 14, 2011 It rained, Toronto lost, but boy did we have so much fun!

3: Niagara Falls May 2011 | This was our first weekend trip together during the Victoria Day long weekend. We ate at the Keg, walked up and down Clifton Hill, walked through the wax museum, played mini golf, took a ride on the Sky Wheel and just had a lot of fun.

19: We celebrated our 6 month anniversary with dinner on October 13 downtown at Benihana Japanese Steakhouse. Chefs prepare all entrées at a 'hibachi' table where a fast-paced performance of chopping and juggling creates an exciting teppanyaki-style dining experience.
