30 Day Blogging Challenge Day 24: My Favourite Day of the Month
Everyone has their favourite day of the week, but I also have my favourite day of the month, and that is today! Each 23rd of the month is very special to me, as it was on this date six years and seven months ago that Luis Alfredo Pérez Soto, proposed to me, although we had been together for a couple of years before that , as we got together in March 2006, but had been living together since January that year.
Lots of people ask me why we chose this date. The answer is that my birthday is on the 22nd of December, and the exact moment I was proposed to was the early hours of the 23rd of December in 2008 . This took me by surprise. I can remember that I was half asleep when Alfredo pullled out a ring and said he wanted to be with me forever. I was overwhelmed and burst into tears, as I never thought anyone would love me so much they would want to be with me
Since that date, 23 has become my lucky number. We always celebrate on the 23rd day of every month without fail. To us, it doesn't have to be a big celebration, we are just happy to spend time together. We usually have something nice to eat, and just enjoy each other's company. Today I was presented with a gift from Alfredo which was the new wheelchair control I have needed for the past few months. I was really happy. Something else we do is to send each other E-cards every month on the 23rd. We both agree that celebrating our love for each other in this way is great for the both of us , and it is what we will do for years to come.
