Jason and I met in October 2002 through mutual friends. We hungout for a little while and ended up going bowling. I joke about how Jason was not interested in me, because he barely said a word to me, and I spent most of the night talking to one of his good guy friends. You see, Jason is just a very shy person, especially around someone of the opposite gender. He’s gotten better over the years. Haha. A couple of weeks later, Jason messaged me on AOL Instant Messenger (remember that old tool? haha). We chatted about everything for quite a few weeks. Eventually he called me and asked if I’d like to drive around with him and look at Christmas lights. I, of course, said yes! We had the best time together. We spent the whole time talking and getting to know each other better. Jason officially asked me out New Years 2002/2003. It came as a surprise, because I already figured we were boyfriend/girlfriend due to the fact we had already been going on dates. Jason proposed to me a year later on New Years 2003/2004, and we later married in October 2006. We’re coming up on 15 years from when we met, which is so crazy to us. We have come a long way from our 17 and 21-year-old selves, to the grown adults we are today. We have worked at our full-time jobs for over 11 years each, we’ve owned our first home for 10 years now, I earned two college degrees, we have adopted many pets, we have traveled to several places, and so much more. We are best friends. We participate in so many activities together and we support each other to take part in our own interests. We are comfortable in our own space and having our alone time, but also encourage each other to have our girl or guy time as needed. We communicate about basically everything, and have very similar views on worldly topics. Jason and I are comfortable enough to be silly around each other and just have a great time. We have tickle fights, and many of our pictures involves at least one of us sharing a silly facial expression. We are an amazing team. Obviously we are not always sunshine and rainbows. We can drive each other nuts sometimes and we have our arguments, but our negative time doesn’t usually last too long before once of us apologizes. With all that said, we are excited for the adventures that are waiting for us in the next few chapters in our “Book of Love”.
Here are a few pictures of us from the past few years. Eventually I’ll share some pictures from the early years of when we first started dating. (Once I dig them out, of course) haha
