What’s in a Number?

Ten years. An entire decade. It was a Thursday. I was 16. He was 15. We had been hanging out since mid-December. He called me while on a ski trip over Christmas break. I took that as a good sign.

January 4th. “Are we going to do this?” It was such a funny way to ask me to be his girlfriend, but I was already completely smitten. It all started as a high school crush.

We have been through so much together–we’ve grown up together, changed together, and made each other better people. To those who say you grow apart as you grow up, I just have to laugh. He’s seen me at my worst–a selfish, snooty teenager, and he’s helped me become better. I think he would readily say the same thing.

He’s the love of my life, my everything. I can’t wait to grow old together and continue to laugh and love each day! 

So, most of these don’t actually date back to 2001. Apparently I did not have a digital camera then. The more I think about it, the more I remember us all toting around disposable cameras all weekend and then rushing to WalMart Sunday or Monday for one-hour photos. Hmmm… I think 2003 is as far as I found.
