4: H O W W E M E T | One day in August of 2007, I was approached by Ben while working in studio. As a freshman at Syracuse University, specifically within a small program like the Architecture program, it was normal to try to ntroduce yourself to everyone in the class. So when Ben introduced himself, it didn't seem out of the ordinary. However, after having lunch everyday for a week, I was charmed by his sweet disposition and tender personality. | You could say our story line was a bit unconventional. Our first kiss took place in October of 2007 at night after running into each other on the corner of Euclid and Ackerman Ave after celebrating my birthday. October has since been a milestone month for us. | O U R F I R S T K I S S

5: O U R F I R S T D A T E | Our first date happened in April of 2009 quite a while after our first kiss. Some could say I was duped into going to the sophomore Beaux Arts Ball with Ben. He initially told me we were going as a group of friends but by the end of the night I was impressed by how respectful he was I was willing to give him a second date. | On October 10th, 2009 Ben took me out to celebrate our 6th month anniversary. I'll never forget how he took me to the same corner of Ackerman and Euclid where we had our first kiss to tell me he loved me. I had wanted to say it before then but was too afraid so I'm lucky that Ben decided to express his feelings that night. | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U

7: I love that we can be silly and weird together...What sets you apart is not only accepting my weird but being able to keep up with it as well. You're so great at being my boyfriend as well as my best friend and I couldn't ask for anything more. I love you my sweet Benny bear.

8: We are fortunate that every anniversary so far has been special and amazing in its own way. Whether it was revisiting our first date or finding the time to celebrate our anniversary in a different country, we always made sure to celebrate us. | anniversaries | One Year - Beaux Arts | 04. 10. 2010 | ...........................................

9: Two Year - Paris | 04. 22. 2011 | ........................................... | Three Year - Niagra Falls | 05. 16. 2012 | ...........................................

10: Halloween has always been a favorite holiday of mine and when we started dating your costumes went from effortless "ski bum" to costumes with a little more thought because you knew how much it meant to me. My personal favorite was definitely the Christmas tree. | Halloween | .............................................. | PARTY TIMES

13: No matter what I will always be indebted to Syracuse for bringing us together. I may not have loved the university but I love you and all the memories we made together there. You made Syracuse my home. | Syracuse | ..............................................

14: favorite places | London holds a special place in my heart and I was so happy to be able to share the city with you. Walking down Oxford Street passing all the people on the street, I remember thinking to myself, "they don't know how lucky we are." | We wouldn't be us without Syracuse. Men's basketball games, nights at Chuck's, trips to Marshall street and late night runs for sorbet to Wegman's are only some of the memories that are so special to me. | SYRACUSE, NY | LONDON, UK

15: Niagra Falls was our three year anniversary destination. Despite how sick I was, we faced the Made of the Mist and the raging falls together. One of the best parts was there was always a rainbow to be seen and the view of the falls from our hotel room! | Florence holds a special place in your heart and I was so happy to learn about it from you when I came to visit. Exploring the food and history of the city could not have been made any better by sharing it with anyone else. | FLORENCE, ITLAY | NIAGRA FALLS, CANADA

16: TRIPS | Florence, Italy | ................................ | 03. 2 0 1 1

19: Paris, France | Our trip to the city of love was the perfect destination for our two year anniversary. Picnicking in the park next to the Eiffel Tower and napping in the grass by Notre Dame made Paris a truly romantic experience. | .............................................. | 04. 2 0 11

20: Barcelona, Spain | ................................ | 05. 2 0 1 1

21: One of the coolest parts of our trip, and something I encourage for anyone who travels to Barcelona was our self guided tour to every Gaudi building we could fit into our four days there.

22: Whenever we do anything together we seem to find or create fun. Whether it's making up a story over the phone or exploring a new city with you, I love any time we get to spend together. I love you.

24: oh the places we will go... | Graduating from Syracuse is only the beginning of our life together.

25: to be continued...
