5: She's got whatever it is It blows me away She's everything I wanted to say to a woman But couldn't find the words to say She's got whatever it is I don't know what to do Because every time I try and tell her how I feel It comes out "I love you" You got whatever it is

13: How do you know when you're in love? How do you know when you're in love is it the crazy things you do is it the fact that my heart skips a beat everytime that i think of you Is it the fact that I can't sleep at night when your image is in my head Or is it the fact that I can't stop smiling after every word that you've said Is it the need to hold you in my arms and keep you there forever Or is it the fact that I wrote you a poem and sent it to you in a letter Is it this awful feeling deep inside whenever I have to take you home Or is it just being here without you that makes me feel so alone Is is this hunger deep inside that longs for your kiss I am so happy that I'm in love for there are so many things I would miss.

15: "Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence." --Edmond and Jules de Goncourt

32: Andy, Wow we have so many memories I couldn't even fit them all into this tiny book. But let me tell you, everything that was depicted in the pages before this were only SoMe of the best memories of my life, and let me say they pretty much all involved you. I dont even know where to start. I knew there was something there the first time I met you. We just clicked and from there on we just had this sort of chemistry that only grew stronger with each passing day. (Sorry I have to brag a little here and I will never let you forget this...) If it werent for me Im not sure we would have ever met. I had always had a crush on you while you were dating Mandy, but who was I kidding, you didnt even know I existed. I was Mrs. Wynns daughter who you only saw sometimes walking to her moms room in the 8th grade hall. I figured I would just always be that girl until that one day in 10th grade I got the courage to add you on MySpace. Of course at first you only used me to do your English book projects but we eventually got passed that and built a solid friendship. I remember the first time I “could have” dated you and boy did I blow that chance. You asked me out and I told you that I couldnt go out with you because I was “talking” to Philip. Well as you can remember that didnt go as I had planned and I got put back onto the singles market. Sadly, you had moved on and found a new girl to call your girlfriend.
33: You dated Dakota for the longest time and I wasnt sure I would ever get another chance for myself. Even your brother, who probably just told me this so I would date him, had told me to give up liking you because you and Dakota would be together forever. But I was patient and eventually your relationship with her got to a rocky point and you had ended it. You told me that even though you were single now you didnt really want to be in a relationship at the moment, but I would be at the top of your list if you changed your mind. You came over to my house one night and all I wanted you to do was kiss me… that didnt happen. But then you came over a second time and you just said, “Hell I cant do this anymore” and kissed me. It was actually pretty funny. That night Im pretty sure was the night you asked me to go to Homecoming with you. Of course I accepted, and a few short days later you finally asked me out in front of Mr. Bayless classroom! Since then we have been pretty much inseparable. (Besides the few Jenneal incidents, but we wont go there) Now looking back and reading all of this is sounds almost like a little middle school love doesnt it? But since then our relationship has grown to something amazing and I cannot see myself with anyone else. These pictures are for you so that in 30 years, whether you are with me or not, you will never forget me.
34: You see, the fact that you might not end up with me isnt what would kill me, it would kill me if all of our ups and downs, great times and not so great times were for nothing and that with time your memories of me were to fade. Starting college is a great experience and you do not know how proud I am of you Andy. You have come so far since I have met you and I thank you so much for being their for me through my parents splitting up and even staying up with me through thunderstorms. Even though I have said many things to you in this letter, words cannot even begin to describe the feelings I am feeling right now. Happiness, that I have gotten to spend this much time with you, Sadness, because you will be leaving me, and even Hope, that maybe one day our paths will cross again. I know in my heart that no matter what happens to us both, there will always be those special memories stored deep in our hearts forever. I love you so much Andrew Clayton Baum and I know I didnt always show it all the time but believe me it was and still is immeasurable.
35: I wish you the best of luck in college and i know you will do great things with your life and others. (By the way ill be waiting for that Silver Black diamond ring once you're out of school and become a rich engineer ;] ) With All My Love, Welby, Loser, Punk, Babygirl, Shelbster, Babydoll, Shelby marie Wynn <3
