BC: The End
FC: Est. 1.25.13 | A Year of Love
1: Jared, On this, our one year anniversary, I just want to tell you how much I treasure and adore you. You have been such a huge blessing to me in so many ways, but most of all, you are a beautiful example to me of how God loves-- unconditionally and with a passion that overwhelms. My prayer today is that God continues to bless our relationship as He shows me new ways to love and serve you. I hope that you enjoy looking through Our Year in Review! Forever yours, Your loving girlfriend Charity P.S. Bob's your uncle

15: Junior Senior Banquet! | April 6, 2013 After a long ordeal of trying to find "the dress", we decided to take a chill pill and just have a good time. The result was a fun-filled night of dancing, picture taking, laughing, and making memories with friends.
16: "Distance makes the heart grow fonder."
17: Perhaps our greatest trial to date was our time apart when I was in China. We were at that really intense state of being so head over heels for each other we couldn't be a part for a moment. Needless to say having to be apart an additional month and a half was pure torture. Everyday I longed to be with you again; to hold your hand and kiss your lips. | 86 days
19: One of our sweetest adventures was going up to witness Mason and Brooke tie the knot. The journey began with our 6th month-a-versary which we celebrated a day early for the trip's sake. It was a great day riding the ski lift and kissing when no one was looking. We finished at the restaurant where we had our first "real" date. The next day, we had a great talk during the drive and we had so much fun spending time with Brooke's cool family, especially her wonderful parents who really enjoyed having us. We laughed and cried (mostly Charity) but overall it was a truly priceless memory. | Mason and Brooke's Wedding | 7/27/13
20: Our love stretches outward.
22: 8/ 1/ 13 | After coming back from Mason and Brooke's wedding, we were very lovesick for each other. So, my knight in shining armor paid me another surprise visit, the only one I was ever prepared for. That day, we fed our hunger for learning. We spent the day at the California Science Center and Exposition Park Rose Garden. The center had a lot of cool exhibits on ecosystems with lots of hands-on things for us to play with. We walked around in the garden a while looking at all the different subspecies of roses that were there, chasing a beetle, and finding a picturesque spot to cuddle in the shade. | ADVENTURE
25: As our summer was drawing to a close, we had one more adventure up our sleeves. Armed with spontaneity and an invitation, we set off up the mountain. We spent a few days with the lovely Isabel Carpenter (AKA: Seventeen) sight-seeing, boat-riding, obstacle course climbing, vegan eating, poker gambling, and late night cuddling. Best gas money ever spent! | Big Bear Here we come!
27: Sweet Somethings
28: On a whim, I thought it'd be fun for us to go to a pumpkin patch! I was right (lol). We got there and were overcome with youth and playfulness. We fed the animals, took pictures, punched the potato sacks, and scored FREE PUMPKINS!

35: “Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” -C.S.Lewis
36: A major milestone for us this year was setting up the surprise meeting of our parents. It was perfect. My parents were in town for Thanksgiving for the first time in a while. My father was going to meet your family at Fantasia anyway, but we wanted to set up something a bit more special. I was able to keep it a secret from my parents. So when we arrived at the restaurant to see you and your parents, the moment was priceless.
