To this day, when he asked me if I wanted to go to dinner, I wasn’t sure if it was a date. I mean, I thought it could be, but never having been asked on one, I wasn’t sure.
I’ll always remember what he ordered. “The cheeseburger without cheese.”
I can’t remember what I got. I just know there were fries involved.
As we sat in that booth with vinyl seating, under the pendant light at TGI Friday’s, we conversed. Learned more about each other beyond the, “Hi my name is ____ and I’m from _______,” that happened frequently interning at Disney World.
I was in a place where I didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. Photography was not even on my radar at the time. But I knew that the time I had in Florida was precious and being filled with dreams I hadn’t ever imagined.
Seven years ago I said, “Yes,” to a dinner invitation that changed my life.
Here’s to more years of ordering cheeseburgers without cheese, sitting in vinyl covered booths, and chasing dreams, together.
Dear Cent, Thank you for always encouraging my dreams, even when I feel like it wouldn’t work. You never let me give up, and I can’t thank you enough for that. I love you!
Stay tuned to big changes…coming very very soon!
