FC: The Story of Us | The 1st Year August 19, 2009 - August 19, 2010
1: How We Met... On the afternoon of Saturday, August 15, 2009 Emily went for a bike ride with her friend Lindsey. Shortly after the ride began the weather took a rainy turn, and the girls found themselves at the Riverside Perk. While enjoying smoothies Lindsey began to tell Emily about a boy named Theo, and she thought meeting would be a good idea. That nigh t over drinks, pool, and darts (which Emily later learned she cheated at...who knew) our relationship started to come to life. Over the next few days we spent hours talking on the phone getting to know one another. Our first date took place on Wednesday, August 19, 2009. Theo suggested drinks at Walt's All American Bar. After a few rounds of pool and foosball we went back to Theo's to play cards. This is the beginning of our story...
