4: H O W W E M E T | We met June 8th 2010 at a mutual friends wedding. Christian asked me to dance and I accepted. We had instant chemistry, something I had never felt before. I knew this guy was special and was hoping he felt the same. He waited two weeks to finally call me and I was so excited to finally get to spend more time with him. | June 20th 2010 Christian asked if I would like to join him at a summer concert in San Francisco. I accepted but I didn't know it was a date and thought other people would be joining us. I soon found out it wasn't a group outing and it was meant to be a date. We had a fabulous time and the rest is history. | 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 were at the beach in Santa Barbara, Ca for the 4th of July in 2010. We were soaking up some sun and feel asleep under a cabana. When I woke up Christian was laying there gazing at me. He leaned in to give me a kiss and I kissed him right back. He took my breath away. That was the first of many lovely kisses from my Sweet Christian. | On our 5th date, July 25th 2010 Christian took me sailing on Lake Tahoe. He hired a chef to prepare a wonderful meal for us to eat out on the water. I was very impressed. After dinner we stood at the bow of the boat and as the sun was setting he held me close and whispered those three precious words...I love you. I said it back of course. I'll always remember that special moment. | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U
6: We had so much fun in Colorado this summer.We went hiking and whitewater rafting and stayed the week at a friends cabin. It was so romantic. Our little outdoor adventure is one of my favorite memories we've shared together. I look forward to many more adventures to come.
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 sweet teddy bear.
10: We threw Christian a surprise party and managed to pull it off without him finding out. It took a lot of planning but we pulled it off and he was pleasantly surprised to see all of his family and friends there to celebrate his 28th Birthday. | Christian's 28th Birthday | .............................................. | O C T O B E R 5 T H 2 0 1 2

20: Kauai, HI | ................................ | 1. 1 8. 2 0 1 2 | We were pretty lucky with the weather on our trip and only had one day of rain the whole time. The next morning after it rained, we counted at least 15 waterfalls that had appeared on the cliffs outside our window. It was so beautiful!
21: One of the coolest parts of our trip, and something I encourage for anyone who travels to Kauai, was a helicopter tour of the island. We saw parts of the island you can’t see any other way, dipping into canyons, getting up close to waterfalls, flying along sea cliffs of the Na’Pali Coast.
24: friendship | As a child 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. I think our paths have finally crossed. Jessica is more perfect for me than I would have ever imagined. Life would not be complete without her.
25: Christian has such an amazing and kind heart. He has never met a stranger and everyone loves him. He truly is my perfect other half. I am so blessed to have him, and will always cherish the time we share. I look forward to a long, happy future together.
