Our Fourth Anniversary (And How I Met Your Father, Lauren)

Today is our fourth wedding anniversary!

 I met Nick 10 years ago when I was on holiday in Sydney, Australia. It was in February 2004, a girls' trip with my friend, Jasmine because we were both dateless on Valentines Day that year. Anyway, we met Nick at a bar on a Friday night where a mutual friend was having his birthday party. He asked for my number, and he called me on Sunday. He actually waited 3 days, haha. We agreed to meet for coffee and dinner the following week. Jasmine tagged along to those dates, I can't desert her to go out with some guy I just met, right? Needless to say, Nick was charming enough to both of us that I was immediately smitten. From then on, I spent most of my 3 weeks holiday with him. We agreed to go steady just before I went home to Kuala Lumpur and he had already booked his ticket to come see me the following month. By June, I was moving to Sydney to be with him. A risky move but deep down, I think I knew he was the one.

When Nick visited me in KL for the first time, he was subjected to a 5 hour karaoke session with me and my buddies.
Christmas BBQ in his backyard. We were very proud of how yummy the massive trout turned out on the barbie.

Paris! I tirelessly went from shops to shops while he sat at a cafe sipping beer while people watching. We complement each other like that.

At a restaurant right after the proposal. No, he didn't do it in the restaurant. It was done in private in our suite at Lebua Hotel, Bangkok. See how happy I looked! 
My 30th birthday trip turned out to be a surprise when Nick arranged all my bridesmaids from overseas to be there too.
Saying our own vows. Best day of my life.

Tonight we are having a simple dinner at La Forketta. I'm meeting him there, so it'll be like a date. Only difference is Lauren's coming along too :)

Happy Anniversary, Nick. I love you.
