1: This is a book that looks back at the year we met, 2006. That year I met the love of my life, my future wife, my best friend. Thank You for all the wonderful memories and trips from that year. Who knew it would be the start of such an amazing love story. | May twenty sixth, two-thousand and six I met the the girl I wanted to spent the rest of my life with She was beautiful, charming, and had a great smile However, at the time she was content to pass me by She shined me on and gave me the cold shoulder But my persistence and advances eventually won her over After begging and pleading, she finally gave me a chance And ever since that day, she has been making my heart dance For I have never been good with words, so I made this book So open it up, flip through the pages and take a look Through each picture and memory you will find This wonderful Love Story of Your's and Mine

62: 2006 was an amazing year, I knew from the moment I saw you that I would do ANYTHING to get your attention and to somehow get you interested. Although I thought you were out of my league (thanks to your rejection of my advances) I somehow was able to convince you to open up to me. And I am so glad that you did. You have been making my life a dream come true ever since. Who thought the girl that put me on "Cloud 9" from the very first time I met her would end up to be my future wife. We never let the physical distance between us discourage us, I can't thank you enough for that. We started off with a few quick surprise trips in June of 06, and after each one, I left back to GA in even more of a daze, always more and more impressed of how amazing you were. Our first planned trip was to Palm Springs, and with how well we got along you would think we had been dating for years, not just hours. We had another spontaneous trip when you flew to Philly, then we drove to Atlantic City, your first visit to the East Coast. Then, my family finally got to meet you when you visited GA for Jenny's wedding. In October we had an awesome trip to San Diego where we walked the entire city, journeyed through Balboa Park, spent hours watching the Orangutans at the Zoo, and had some hot dates in La Jolla. | 2006 A Look Back
63: We followed it up by having another adventurous trip in San Francisco. We walked through China Town, rented a electric cart (that brokedown!!!), visited Lumbar Street, and Alcatraz. We also went on "The Walk". From Pier 38, to the Golden gate Bridge, over the bridge, down the hill, into Sausalito, and then took a boat ride back to the mainland as the sun was setting behind the Golden Gate Bridge. Our last day was capped off by a walk through China Town in the pouring down rain, you were not very happy, then a drive through Muir Woods, in the even more pouring down rain. After San Fran, we took a scenic drive down to Santa Barbara for a couple of relaxing days. I flew back out to Cali for your Christmas Party, but I got the flu and it was not as fun as you had hoped when you were tipsy and explaining it to me in San Fran. I recovered, and we went up to Rancho Cucomungo to see all the decorated homes. Then, you came back to the East Coast to celebrate Christmas with me and my family. Before we left for the Mountains I cooked you a dinner with Filet Mignon and Fried Corn Fritters. 2006, was a blast and you opened me up to a whole new world. I hope you look back it and smile as much as I do. Who knew it would turn into the perfect love story that would last forever and ever. Kimly, you are the most perfect dream come true. | I Love You
