Do you remember your first kiss?

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

Yesterday, I found this video of the filmmaker Tatia Pillieva, who asked 20 strangers to kiss on camera. I found it so awkward that I kept on pausing every two seconds, just to work through my own anxious feelings. (Believe me, you didn't want to sit next to me when I was watching the Grey's Anatomy episode of April's wedding aftermath - that took me forever. Flip had to pause every two seconds because I was shouting at the tv so much. I just couldn't bear it. My ANXIETIES!)



This awkwardness made me think back to the first time Flip and I ever kissed. It was on our first date, we were standing in my foyer of my flat, saying our goodbyes for the evening, and suddenly Flip just grabbed me, dipped me and kissed the hell out of me. I was telling a friend how grateful I am that this was actually how our first kiss happened, that we didn't have to go through any awkward stances and chitchat like these lot did above - I mean, I honestly wasn't expecting this really shy guy to kiss me out of the blue - but he did. And my friend said: "just like he did at the wedding."

And then it hit me - our first kiss in our marriage was probably an exact replica of our first kiss ever. Except for the wedding part. And the white dress part. Pretty awesome, right?
 

Coincidentally, we are married five months today. I can't believe five months has already gone by. The old adage that the first year is the most difficult has definitely rung true on a few days, but there is no-one else I would rather spend my days with. I love you Flip!

Gosh, first kisses can be soooo bad! Luckily ours was beautiful. It had been building up for MONTHS so when it finally happened, it truly felt like we had been kissing for years already. Our first kiss on our wedding day was just as perfect, we never practiced or talked about it - about from joking about how awkward we could make it for our folks haha!

So adorable that your kisses were the same, and happy 5 months!
