4: H O W W E M E T | We met in your sophomore year of high school. You were a friend of my sister, and we ended up going to Paranormal Activity as a group. We barely talked to each other at all, but just seeing you I felt something. I didn't know what it was, but the urge to know this confident, beautiful girl drove me from then on. After an interesting trip to Halloween Horror Nights and a few months at school, I knew you were more then just some girl. | The week before Christmas Break, I finally gathered up the courage to ask you out. I bought a BK CandyGram and sent it to you with the classic "Dinner? Yes/No" question. You said yes tentatively, and instead of dinner we went ice skating. I felt as if (despite how insanely nervous I was) I'd never been more comfortable around anyone. I reached out and asked to hold your hand, and the rest of the night was like some dream I'd stepped into. While the skating was not quite like the picture provided, I felt like the night couldn't have gone more perfectly. | 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 | After that date, I knew I had to see you again. I went out and bought an awful Christmas basket, and told you I was swinging by Christmas Day to drop it off. As I met your whole family, and went to leave, I decided to take a chance and kiss you on the cheek. Of course your head turned ever so slightly, and the picture on the right depicts pretty accurately what happened next. Of course you'll counter that our first kiss didn't actually happen until Corina's party. Agree to disagree :-P | After asking you out that amazing night of New Years Eve, we went back to school fresh into a relationship. A few weeks in, I knew what I felt and was ready to tell you, hoping you'd feel the same way. After a night of panicking thinking you said it first, I told you the next day that I loved you. When you said it back, I felt like nothing could make my life better. | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U
6: After the countless romantic evenings and adventurous days we've had together, there's no one moment I can pinpoint as my favorite. Every second with you is a new experience and just another excuse to fall deeper in love with you.
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 and would be happy for the rest of my life if I knew you were going to be by my side.
10: As one of the best experiences of my high school career, we went to our first Prom together. While not quite as grand as we had planned, being there with you, seeing how beautiful and happy you were, made everything worth it. | Prom 2010 and 2011 | .............................................. | April 21 S T 2 0 1 0 and 2011
11: After the small scale of 2010's prom, we wanted to make the next one big. We hopped into Brooke's group, rode a limo and had a nice dinner. It was the time of our lives, and at the end of the night I went to sleep knowing there was no one else I would've wanted to spend my senior prom with.
12: Orlando, FL | ......................................... | January 1st, 2011
13: For our one year anniversary, I wanted to do something so big it would stick with us for the rest of our lives. Something that would show how much I care about you, and how much my life has changed since you came into it. I made a poor attempt at surprising you with a trip to see your first Cirque Du Soliel show and dinner at Norton's Ritz-Carlton. After all the planning and excitement, I don't regret one second of that night. It was the most amazing night I've ever had, and helped reinforce the fact that you were the girl I wanted to call my wife.
15: Valentine's Day 2010, 2011, and 2012 | For our second Valentine's Day together, I wanted to do something really special. I made a playlist of all your favorite songs, cooked the nicest dinner I could muster, and led you to a romantically lit table in the backyard with a path of roses. Seeing your reaction, and knowing how happy it made you, was something I'd see every single day if I could. You made a video of our relationship that brought me to tears, and it was a perfect night. Not to be outdone of course, you decided to take over the next year, and we cooked the best meal I think either of us have ever made. Making it together in an empty house made us feel like a married couple, and I loved it.
16: Everything Else | ................................ | Despite all the ups and downs, surprising moments, and rough patches, we stuck together and grew as a couple. Every time we were together I knew even more so that I could be with you for the rest of my life and always be happy. You've done so much for me, and have always supported me through everything. I want to keep doing that for you, as long as I can.
17: You're the love of my life, the perfect girlfriend, and the only person I'd want to spend the rest of my life. After all the searching, all the mistakes, and all the regrets, you came out of nowhere and changed everything. All of a sudden I knew what I wanted out of life, and that was more time with you.
18: friendship | As a kid I would occasionally think to myself that the girl of my life is out there living her life somewhere in the world. Our paths just haven't crossed yet. After what cannot be a series of coincidences, I know our paths finally have. Nichole is more perfect for me than I would have ever imagined. Life would not be complete without her.
