4: H O W W E M E T | We originally met through my older cousin when we were younger. Then met again freshman year of high school only to hate each other. Senior year, he walked into volleyball practice & I fell for those baby blues. We shared a couple classes together & got to know each other better. The more I got to know him the more I fell for him. | Around November 2005, we were talking regularly and going out with friends. Our first actual date was at Frankie's Restaurant. That's when he found out what a picky eater I am. Thank god it was an Italian restaurant, they had pasta! We had a great dinner and night. Dinner and a movie is our thing now and I love it! | O U R F I R S T D A T E
5: O U R F I R S T K I S S | We went trick or treating together the Halloween of 2005. I had liked him for a while but was not sure on how he felt. We were out with a group of friends for the night & ended up back at his house. After everyone left we watched Halloween. After the movie he drove me home & as I was about to get out, he asked for a goodnight kiss! It was perfect! | At Brenton's St. Patrick's Day party 2006, he got a bit tipsy. At the end of the night I decided to take away his last beer. As I was taking it away, he said, "It's ok, I'm fine, I love you." I froze for a minute since I thought it was the alcohol but said it back soon after. The next day after watching movies all day, before he left, he said it again. I was so happy that he meant it, I started crying. | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U
6: In July & August of 2006 we went on our first vacations together. We went to Lake George with my family and Cape Cod with his family. We spent the days shopping, laying out on the beach and playing mini golf. These were the first vacations out of many to come and the first memories too!
8: Yankees Baby! | Beach Bums | Kissy Kissy Smoocheroo!
9: I love that we can be silly together...We're so fortunate to have the friendship we have as well as the love we share. I am so blessed to have found my true love and my best friend. We have such a good time together. I love you my Brenton Bear. | Cape Cod | The Couple of Champions!
10: Halloween is an important holiday for us. Not only is it our favorite, but it was the first time we kissed. Each year we try to go to Halloween parties together since we've "outgrown" trick or treating. Someday we're going to Salem for it! | Halloween Night | .............................................. | T H R O U G H T H E Y E A R S
11: This past year was the first time we spent Halloween apart. Brenton was in Greenwich for his clinicals. But he surprised me by driving home to see me before the end of the night!
12: Our first New Years together was one I'll never forget. Brenton had everyone sleep over his house for the night, including his crazy friends! After we fell asleep I was awoken by "Boom, boom, boom! Hot Shit!" That was when I learned how crazy Tom was & he learned how angry I could get. Looking back on it now, it was pretty funny.
13: New Years Eve | ........................................... | Through the Years | Through the years, we've always spent New Years Eve together. Whether it be at our houses or a friend's, he is always my first kiss at midnight. And I wouldn't have it any other way!
14: First Anniversary | Osbournedale, Ct | ......................................... | D E C E M B E R 2 N D 2 0 0 6
15: For our first anniversary, I made Brenton breakfast in bed and then we exchanged our gifts. Later on, Brenton took me to Osbournedale to have a picnic at sunset. It was perfect, except for the fact that it is freezing at sunset in December. After our picnic we went bowling and had some of the amazing cake he baked me. It was the perfect day!
16: favorite places | Venice was by far one of the most beautiful places we've been to. All the little shops, restaurants and pathways were wonderful! The gondola ride was so romantic, especially with our own singer and music! | Croatia was probably one of our favorite stops on our European Cruise. The views were beautiful and the walk around the top of the walled city was breath-taking! A return visit is a must! | DUBROVNIK, CROATIA | VENICE, ITALY
17: The history of the city of Athens made this stop for us. Between the art and historical aspects, we were both entertained. The Acropolis and Olympic track field were especially fun for us! | This was our favorite island of the Caribbean! The views on our eco-hike were beyond beautiful and Honeymoon Beach was great! Our tour guide did a great job with that pick! | St. JOHN'S, VIRGIN ISLANDS | ATHENS, GREECE
18: Rome, Italy | ................................ | J U L Y 2 0 0 7 | The time spent in Rome was perfect! We got to visit the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's Basilica, the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum, the Trevi Fountain and even did an Angels & Demons tour throughout the city! It is truly Beautiful!
19: One of the most memorable parts of our trip, was the Colosseum. Brenton and Martin re-enacted Gladiator where the movie was supposed to take place. Keri and I laughed about how silly they were at the time, but it is a memory that I still laugh about whenever our trip to Rome is mentioned!
21: North Carolina | Our trip to North Carolina was interesting. On the way there we got a flat tire and that was quite a memory. Insane describes it best. Once we finally made it down there, the trip was amazing! The Tar Heels won their game and we got to witness it at their home court in Chapel Hill! | .............................................. | 1. 5 - 7. 2 0 0 9
24: friendship | Allissa is smart, beautiful, loyal, and sometimes a pain in the butt. However, I would not have it any other way because it makes her the person she is and I love her for that. She is my soul mate and we have our whole lives ahead of us. Allissa is the one I want to spend the rest of my Saturdays with. Life would not be complete without her.
25: Brenton has stood by me through my ups and downs and still loves me. He is my rock, my shoulder and my soul. He is a beautiful person inside and out and I feel so lucky to have found someone as special as him! I could not ask for a better man to spend the rest of my life with. My life was complete the moment I found him.
