S: Andrew and Meredith's Engagement 2011
BC: PhotoBooks by Claudia
1: Dear Meredith, Wow, what a wild ride its been so far! Look how far we've come- from partying on Bourbon Street, to writing letters from Japan, to standing at the end of a pier in Newport. I look at you sometimes and pinch myself because its so incredible to me that we found each other again, and now we're engaged to be married. I wanted you to have something that you could turn to, a book that told our story in pictures and words. Our adventures have been some of the most exciting in my life and I can only imagine what is in store for us in the future. If I know us, they should be thrilling, full of excitement, family, and friends- but we should never worry about whats in store, because its all destined to be.... I love you, Drew

6: Hey Baby, So, my first letter to you. I'm writing this on the heels of the best weekend of my life. There's been so many emotions that I've felt and there were surely enough of them this past weekend. I love you so much and I hope you realize that. We've only been together three months but already I feel like I've known you my whole life. I look at all the pictures we have and it puts such a big smile on my face (you know the one) to know that its the beginning of many more... perhaps even the beginning of an album maybe? So I can't wait for you to see these...
7: how blond you look in the one picture. I know you'll love that one. It's too bad we don't have more of New Orleans, since that was the beginning. I'm writing this while I'm at my normal cigarette spot and all I can think about is your beautiful face and the way your eyes shine when I look at you. I can't tell you how special you are to me and how much I treasure being your man. That's why I love our pictures so much, because they are the pinch on my arm to assure me I'm not dreaming. I know there are lots of options as far as guys go, so I just want to thank you for picking me. I love you with all my heart and soul. Drew
14: In 2005 with tears in our eyes we had to say goodbye The letters, the phone calls, all the miles we would fly You were in Connecticut while I was in Japan With distance between us, I wanted to be your man Our love felt right but the time for it was wrong The days became hard and the nights felt so long As life went on, we remained apart But as years passed, you never left my heart In 2010 I found you again, something called Facebook was the key Call it luck or call it fate, but I always knew we were destined to be Here we are together once more, your bright eyes still shine Lets make it last forever this time, I'm so glad you're mine
