4: I first met you in July 2006, at a party for a mutual friend. Something about you immediately caught my eye. | This was me getting ready to go to the party... wearing a 'Jordan' jersey. Go figure!
5: These were taken around February 2008, after not being in contact for a few months. We saw each other right after New Years. I was too shy to come up to you first.
6: We lost contact again after those photos were taken. It wasn't until late October 2008 when I logged in to my instant messenger. I saw your screen name and couldn't think of who you were, so I sent you a message asking... When you told me, I honestly didn't believe you. You didn't believe me either...
7: Once we started to believe one another, we talked for hours... not just that night, but many long nights. On January 17, 2009 I went with you and Jackson to the Bobcats game. I was so shy around you. Somehow, I managed to kiss you first. You'd told me before that night that you don't make the first move...
8: We had our first "real" date on Valentine's Day. Before we went to Charandas, I took these pictures
9: You have always been a goof ball. I'm pretty sure it's about 80% of why I love you so much.
10: We started spending lots of time together. Both at your house, and my old place. | I began to notice the way you made my heart flutter right away.
12: LO | I
13: VE | you
14: I've always had so much fun just spending time alone with you
16: The story of us began unexpectedly. In a few minutes after we started talking online, I believed it was you. A few hours is all it took us to catch up. A few nights a week, we'd call and talk on the phone all night long.
17: A few weeks later, I got to see you, though briefly. A few months after that, we began our dating adventure with the Bobcats game & Valentines Day. Only a few short weeks later, I knew already that I was in love with you.
20: June 2009
21: June 2009
22: On July 1, 2009 I got my apartment, and was soon spending a lot more time in Charlotte with you
23: I love you for keeping your word. whenever you say something, you come through. I love you for sticking by my side, even if we've had some tough moments, it's only made our relationship stronger. I love you for always knowing what to do and say to make anything better. You have a gift for that. I love you for having the biggest heart of anyone I've ever met. I am so lucky to have found you.
24: For the Fourth of July, we spent time at your place. The day and night were filled with great times with your family and a couple of friends. All of us sat in the driveway for a neighborhood fireworks show.
25: It was the best fireworks show I have ever seen. I was so happy to be spending another holiday with you.
26: In July, you also came with me to meet my extended family at my Grandma's house in Concord. They loved you right away, just like I knew they would.
27: And then...
28: ...we got our first addition to the family, Sir Ely Bunny the Magnificent!
30: He very quickly became the apple of both of our eyes
32: November 2009
33: For Thanksgiving, you and your family invited me to join on the adventure to Tennessee
37: Our first holiday season together!
38: The time came for New Years, the transition from 2009 into 2010. We headed to Jordan Lake, NC for the party. Midnight on New Years, everyone was standing around watching the ball drop. Counting down. The clock hit midnight, and we kissed. I fell in love with you all over again in that moment.
40: Panthers - 23 | Saints - 10
41: On January 03, 2010 you took me to my first football game ever. The Panthers played and beat the Saints. Final score CAR 23 NO 10! It was freezing!
