6: H O W W E M E T | They first met in January 2009 during a meeting for an event called Venturing Quest that Amy and Gina were planning. Gina offered Mike chocolate chip Oatmeal cookies and the rest was history! The next time they saw each other was in April at the 50's themed event. Poodle skirts and all! Gina was frantic making sure everything was in place, and Mike would just smile and find exactly what she needed. Mike has been exactly what she has needed ever since. | Mike stole Gina's number from Amy's phone and they got to know each other better through texts and phone calls. Their first date was on May 1st, 2009 when Gina drove down to Maryland for the day. They spent most of the day helping set up a Camporee. They didn't know it at the time, but their shared love and commitment to Scouting would always bring them together. | O U R F I R S T D A T E
7: OUR FIRST CAMPING TRIP | Gina and Mike lived 2 1/2 hours away from each other and found it very hard to spend time together. Mike surprised Gina by taking her on their first camping trip to the Pennsylvania Grand Canyon. They shared many special moments and cherished their time together, not knowing when they would see each other again. | After almost three years of driving hours to see each other, Mike and Gina finally live together in a beautiful house on three acres of land in Westminster Maryland. They've completed their home with a 5 year old Pit-bull Boxer mix named Maggie. Mike has wanted a Pit-bull for years and she has been a great addition to their new home. Mike and Gina are truly excited to start the next chapter of their lives with their new home and puppy | PRESENT DAY

10: After a game of hang-man, Gina discovered that Mike was taking her to the Dominican Republic for Christmas! They had an amazing week of swimming, lazing, drinking and of course taking in the beautiful scenery. Lucky they didn't feel the Haiti earthquake that happened while they were there! | Dominican Republic | .............................................. | January 2010

14: Mike took Gina on a trip to Niagara Falls for her 19th birthday. They could see the falls from their hotel, went on the Maid of the Mist, the Sky Wheel, Niagara's Fury, went Behind the Falls and saw the whirlpool and rapids. Finally Mike took Gina to dinner at the Skylon tower's rotating restaurant where they had a beautiful view of the Falls lit up at night. A perfect romantic weekend! | Niagara Falls Spectacular
15: Good Times
16: Just You & Me
17: Love Forever | The best love is the kind that awakens the soul; that makes us reach for more, that plants the fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds
18: You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams | Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. | If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you. | You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching, Love like you'll never be hurt, Sing like there's nobody listening, And live like it's heaven on earth
19: Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in sweats, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky his is to have you.... The one who turns to his friends and says, 'that's her. | Love is needing someone. Love is putting up with someone's bad qualities because they somehow complete you | True love is rare, and it's the only thing that gives life real meaning
