Things I Love Thursday – 2

15 Jul

I love holding hands.

I always have, I always will… It’s my thing.

I remember the first time Mark held my hand. It is actually a super cute story!

We were on our first date at Manly beach, it was a Friday evening, and we had walked along Fairy Bower from Manly to Shelley Beach. We sat on the beach in front of Le Kiosk for a while, and when it was time to walk back, Mark stood in my way so I had to walk up the rocks to the path, instead of simply up the ramp. As I was trying to negotiate the rocks, he offered his hand for support, and never let go : )

He hasn’t let go for 5 and a half years, and I hope he doesn’t let go for the next 70 years!

    Sweet story 🙂

    I’m a hand-holder too, I love that when you are holding hands it keeps you walking side by side…

    If it could get any better it would be when there is a pair of chubby little hands between yours and his and their owner looks a little bit like you and a little bit like him.

      Denise I’m so excited for our little chubby hands to come along 🙂 I hope I’m as lucky as you have been with your gorgeous children x

        Well if our niece is anything to go by we can safely assume that Aitken babies are off-the-chart gorgeous! Although, when yours comes along that will make Nina a Great Granny!! I am too young for Nina to be a great grandmother! I still think of her as the glam thirty something in clicky heels and a swanky shawl thrown raffishly over her shoulder. You see my problem.

    The think I love is that you two hold hands the same unique way Jen and I have done since 1976.
