we went to our favourite sushi restaurant Go Tempura for dinner and ivan asked them to put our sushi on one of those sushi boats along with the ring. so sweet! i love the ring so much, it is perfect.
ivan and i started dating in February of 2002 but we actually met in the fall of 1997 when i was just starting grade 9. he was my guitar teacher (even though he is less than 1 year older than me). it was definitely not love at first sight, haha. i was kind of really annoying. 2 of my friends and i had our lessons back to back so we would always interrupt each others lessons and goof around. i think ivan actually dreaded our lessons, haha. we were some of his first students and we were not well behaved.
before we were dating :)
I stopped taking guitar lessons sometime near the end of highschool but my band still went to visit ivan sometimes because he had helped get us together through the place where we had all taken lessons. One day when we went to see ivan to show him a new song he suddenly looked kind of cute to me. we had a few mutual friends and we had talked about jamming in the past so i was bold and wrote my phone number on the blackboard in his room and told him to call me so we could jam.
