S: California Bound - late 2011
BC: This book is dedicated to Jonathan Conger. Without him, I wouldn't be where I am now. I wouldn't be able to experience this much happiness. and I wouldn't be able to look towards my future and breath a happy sigh, because I know as long as he's in it, I'm going to be one happy lady. xoxo | Sunnyvale, California "home sweet home"

21: My 22nd birthday was amazing! I got to spend it with the love of my life! Jon and Lex sneakily installed a car stereo in my car by flattening my tire when I had to go to work the next morning. I had NO idea!!
24: Jon, Lex and I went out and got ourselves a tree and a TON of decorations! We spent a good portion of the night setting it up, decorating, and laughing. Christmas this year will definitely start new traditions!
26: Holiday Party 2011
28: SAN FRANSISCO TRIP 12.13.2011
29: When we arrived to South San Fransisco, we were amazed by all of the buildings and wanted to get out of the car and explore! Jon found a parking lot.. and after walking out of that lot, we realized that it wasn't the safest area by any means, and had to circle the block to get back to the car. LOL!
30: Once we made it to our car and got out of downtown, we followed the trolley down on our way to the Fisherman's Wharf! So fun!

37: The museum was amazing, we were there for hours! Learned and laughed a lot, and made memories!
39: 2011 | On Christmas morning, Jon woke me up at 8am to go unwrap presents! Lex, Jon and I had a lot of fun unwrapping presents and drinking coffee. Shortly after we were done, I got to Skype with my family. Both parties were in front of the tree unwrapped gifts. :) Unfortunately, no pictures were taken of that. But this was one of the best Christmas' I have ever had. I love you Jonathan Conger.
46: When midnight hit, I had my first and best, real New Year's kiss. It was comparable to the elevator where Jon and I shared our first kiss. My heart did cartwheels and backflips. My lips felt like they had electricity running through them. Never in my life, have I been so happy and content. So in love, and hopeful. Jonathan Conger, you have changed something in me and made me the happiest woman alive. I love you. Thank you for sharing the end of 2011 with me, and thank you for looking towards 2012 and seeing the light I see. This is the first of many New Year's kisses! Here's to many more years together! | 2012
