4: H O W W E M E T | We met August 2005 during our freshman year of hight school. We were in several of the same classes and got to know each other. We've been friends ever since and have always been there for one another. We bring out the best in one another. | Our first date was to a Burger King in Paris, TN. There's not a whole lot to do in Paris TN and we didn't have a whole lot of time, but just to hang out for an hour or two was enough for us. I had locked Matthew out of the car and shoved all of his fries into the little cup of ketchup. | 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 | During the second semester of our high school sophomore year Andrea had come up to visit me and we were talking outside and flirting with one another when she had kissed me. I didn't know what had happened until it was over. It was definitely not like the "first kiss" you see in movies. | We had known we loved one another in high school and our first "I love you" was freshman year. Nothing spectacular, but a mutual deep friendship love that comes once in a lifetime. | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U

25: Someday, many years from now, we'll look back on this crazy time in our life together and wonder how we did it all... I'll sit close behind you, you'll take my hand in yours. We'll look at each other and say: "I'd do it all again... and I wouldn't change a thing." There's no one I'd rather go through life with than you. I love you!
