Is This a Coincidence or What?

I'm a scrapbooker, and while I don't keep up with it as often as I should, I've been on a scrapbooking kick lately. Right after we got married, Creating Keepsakes Magazine had a call for wedding pages for a wedding idea book they were publishing (The Big Idea Book of Wedding Memories). I submitted a couple of pages, and one got picked for publication. I got a copy of the book, but hadn't pulled it out and looked at it in years. Tonight I got the urge to look at it, so I dug it out of the closet. While I was looking at the picture of my layout, I noticed something I'd never paid attention to before. My husband and I met on a blind date. Our first date was on July 28th. Exactly 5 years later, on July 28th, our first child was born. Pretty darn cool!

Wow, that is *really* cool!!! I love stuff like that:). Our eldest son was two weeks late, which put his birth date at 2 days after our 2nd wedding anniversary!

Cool! I have something a little similar. Our first date was August 18th and our daughter (firstborn) was born on April 18th. I thought it was kinda cool :)
