4: H O W W E M E T | We met in my freshman dorm at NYU, Goddard. Our mutual friend Miguel invited you over to hang out, and I first saw you sitting by the elevators in a black leather jacket. I thought you were handsome and mysterious. That night, I got drunk and lay on your lap. It was pretty much love at first sight on my part. | We had our first kiss the night after we met, in my room, with you pressed against the front door. I proceeded to do unspeakable things to your body. You held me close the whole night through. | O U R F I R S T K I S S | T H E S T O R Y B E G I N S
5: I consider the day after we had our first kiss to be our first date. We went to Times Square together and ate at the Red Lobster. You were very shy but held my hand. I was nervous that you might not like me because you wouldn't speak. | O U R F I R S T D A T E | O U R F I R S T " I L O V E Y O U " | I first told you that I loved you the night I slept over at your dorm in Columbia for the first time. We had eaten a cookie each. I knew the moment that I said it that you were the only one for me.
6: The first few months of our relationship were spent getting to know each other. As I learned more and more about you, I started to realize how lucky I was to have met you. You are the sweetest guy that any girl could ask for. | O U R F I R S T M O N T H S
7: For Halloween that year you were Hugh Hefner and I was your Playboy bunny. I think that this is why you still tell me that I'm your bunny today. Even though we didn't end up going anywhere that night because of the snow, I still had the best night cuddling close with you keeping me warm and safe. | I coerced you into buying me Dragon and Beanie from a store in Chinatown. You always spoil me by giving me everything that I want, because you are too sweet to tell me no!
8: You're so cute when you're sleeping! | Remember when we went laser tagging? | G O O D T I M E S
9: T H A N K S G I V I N G | The first time I've ever celebrated Thanksgiving was when I celebrated it with you. We had a big Thanksgiving dinner during which your grandfather accused me of being a communist and you didn't even come to my defense! You also showed me around Westport and drove me to the beach. I was happy to meet your family because I felt like that meant you were serious about me.
11: For spring break last year, we went to my house in Los Angeles with our friends for the week. It was our first real vacation together and we slept on the futon in the living room. I had so much fun! | .............................................. | S P R I N G B R E A K : C A
12: We all went to Disneyland together the first day that we were in California. Somehow, all the rides seemed way more terrifying and exciting when I was younger, but we still had a good time riding them. We walked around the park together all day.
13: D I S N E Y L A N D | We saw the World of Color water and light show before going home that night. It was the perfect way to end the day. | I was so tired by the time we got home that I fell asleep right after taking a shower. I don't even remember you getting into bed with me!
14: Although Universal Studios was somewhat less eventful than Disneyland, I still thought it was pretty fun. After all, everything is fun when I'm doing it with you. We saw lots of movie props and took a tour through some famous sets. | U N I V E R S A L S T U D I O S
15: Look it's the Lorax! We saw this show in theaters some time after this I think, but I thought it was kind of cheesy. I still like the Lorax though, he's so orange and furry, I really wanted to yank on the mustache in this picture, but refrained.
16: T H E B E A C H | We went to the beach several times while we were in California, just to hang out in the sun after the long and cold New York winter. We even built a bonfire one night, and we lit our pipe with the gas lighter because we were so desperate.
17: R I P L E Y ' S M U S E U M | We had started to run out of things to do, so I mobilized the group and made everyone go to the Ripley's museum in Hollywood. It was surprisingly interesting...we saw lots of weird and gross stuff.
18: I spent most of my summer going between NYC and Westport. Even though I had tons of work from taking Summer school, we still managed to find the time to enjoy ourselves. There were many lazy days spent by the pool or curled up on your couch watching trashy T.V. shows. | S U M M E R A T L A S T
19: S T R A W B E R R Y P I C K I N G | Although they can be a little overwhelming at times, I actually really enjoyed spending time with your family during summer. Your family is really sweet and accommodating, and they took me to so many places! I liked strawberry picking as I had never been before.
20: T H E B E S T S U M M E R | Simply put: this summer was the best summer I've ever had, because I spent it with you.
21: T H E M Y S T I C A Q U A R I U M | I had so much fun at the Mystic Aquarium, I think it was one of our best dates. It was also the first time I'd ever seen a beluga whale! I think it was our visit to this aquarium that fueled our "Tanked" obsession later on.
22: H A P P Y B I R T H D A Y T O M E ! | I went all out for my birthday party this year. We made not one, but two vodka watermelons, and also went to a Thai restaurant for dinner, followed by karaoke and hookah. It was awesome.
24: After a few long weeks apart, we reunited in the Caribbean! The beach was so clean and the water was so clear and blue. Everything was perfect. I had the best vacation with you | A N G U I L L A
25: We spent our days hanging out by the beach, snorkeling, watching T.V., eating in nice restaurants, and cuddling all night. I don't think I've ever been happier than I was in Anguilla with you.
27: I really like this photo of us two because you can see on my face how happy I am :) | I was really sad to say goodbye to the island. I had such good times here with you, it was special and beautiful and perfect. Maybe one day we can come back here together and relive all the memories.
28: S P O T D E S S E R T B A R | M A X B R E N N E R | F A V O R I T E S | I always make you take me here when I'm in need of a chocolate fix. I love to roast the marshmallows! | I love this dessert place because of all the interesting flavors that they have. I usually force you to eat here after dinner on St. Marks Place.
29: J E B O N S U S H I | This is our favorite sushi place. We used to always order the loveboat for two, and the waiters would be stunned when we managed to finish it by ourselves! | S H A N G H A I C A F E | We usually eat at this restaurant with all our friends. The xiao long bao is the best! We also came here on one of our first dates, and you didn't know how to use the chopsticks!
30: R E M E M B E R | There are many things I want to remember about my time with Demmi. I enjoyed every moment of my time spent with her, from looking at penguins and whales at the aquarium to relaxing on the beaches in Anguilla, even cuddled up on the couch watching Tanked. No one else can make me feel as special or as loved as she does. She really is the best thing to ever happen to me. I can’t wait to spend even more time with her. | Maxime:
31: Demmi: | I don't want to forget a single moment that I've spent with Max, because the time that I've had with him has been the best of my entire life. Most of all, I want to remember the little things. The way he smiles at me when he wakes up in the morning, the smell of his chest when he holds me close, and the feeling of his body against mine as we fall asleep together at night, These are the things that are the most precious to me. Maxime is my whole world.
