Four years ago, today, Cody asked me to be his girlfriend on the “Great Wall of Chocolate” dessert at P.F. Changs, and we eat there every year on our anniversary just to keep the tradition. :) I wrote alllll about our “how we met” story on my blog last year, which you can read here!
So most of you know about my cousin Christopher, who passed away in 2009. As I’ve mentioned before, Cody went to high school with him. One day, my aunt, (Christopher’s mom) came over to our apartment and she saw my two coffee cups that have a C & H for Cody & Hayley.. and she immediately noticed and said “Omg! Your initials are Christopher’s initials!” : Christopher Hernandez. And as cheesy as this one sounds, Cody, Meela (our dog,) & Hayley, are Christopher’s full initials: Christopher Michael Hernandez. Seriously, so crazy! Cody and I didn’t start dating until a few years after his passing, and my aunt has always said, “Most people would say Cody was Heaven sent, but I say he was Christopher sent.” <3
