1: Goodbye Germany! Can't say I miss much and I am so glad we are together in the great U.S. of A. Maybe one day they will import the McCroissant...
2: San Antonio March 25-28, 2010 Finally you take me to Tomatillos, your favorite Mexican restaurant. I never thought you could get sick of Mexican but you managed that week! We went to the Alamo and hit up the riverwalk. You even shopped a tiny bit and put in a shout out to my Forever 21 obsessed friends in NY.
4: Stop at the Snake Farm outside of San Antonio
5: Wakeboarding on the lake in Austin - lookin good!!!
6: Colorado April 9-10, 2010 | We check out Denver and Colorado Springs to see what we think... and I eat cow balls.
7: We go to a Nuggets game, to the Olympic Training Center, the Denver Aquarium, REI, and out at night where we watch a 15 foot light come crashing down on this poor guy in the club. He was mortified with his drink spilled all over him and I couldn't control my laughter. You thought he went home to kill himself at his only attempt out in months. I felt kinda bad after that.

11: I loved all the graffiti on the walls! | Casey + Jessica 2010

16: I got a new car this week! Although I liked it, it was not enough to make me want to drive! This was my first tank. | Your mom and I spend our days shopping... I mean, house hunting. You had a lot to do checking in at Fort Carson. When we narrowed it down we called on you to help make the final call. Skip the cult house!
17: This was the winner! 10624 Black Elk Way. We picked a great neighborhood and house, with a not-so-great landlord, John who didn't know the stove from the microwave. We moved in August 16, 2010.
18: Cheyenne Mountain Zoo | August 28, 2010

44: The longest drive of our lives from Park City to Vail. You were seriously my hero! We slid off the road and you managed to not let us get hit by a semi. You put on snow chains in a negative degree blizzard. We finally arrived in Vail at 2 a.m. What a trip!
45: Park City and Vail December 28 - January 1 You taught me to snowboard and were the best instructor! I had fun with your friends and then mine in Vail for New Year's.
46: This is your last night in Colorado Springs before leaving for ILE in DC for 3 1/2 months on January 6. I wish I had more pictures from this night! We went to dinner at Briarhurst Manor Estate.

49: After a long day snowboarding... | you thought of a creative way to get down the mountain. Fun!
50: Well, we are in Colorado now. I can't fully explain how happy I am to be with you. I know it has not been the easiest transition and we have a lot to learn about each other. But I look forward to that and having fun with you at the same time. Thank you for being the perfect boyfriend. And I really mean that! I love you, Jessica
