4: H O W W E M E T | We met at my friend Linda Horan's apartment. She had invited a few people over to watch a double feature of the first two Pirates of the Caribbean movies. It was a very casual meeting, but we hit it off well. The four of us ended up paling around, going out to east, and constantly watching movies. "Louie, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." ~ Casablanca (1942) | October 2007 ~ Michael had asked me out several times before, I cautiously thwarted each advance; I finally built up the nerve to say yes. We began our date at El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant. Good food and enjoyable conversation was then followed up at the movies with 30 Days of Night, although I remember more of Kathryn than I do the movie. "Mr. and Mrs. Sheriff. So sweet. Too helpless against what is coming. He's just trying to freak us out. It's working." ~ 30 Days of Night (2007) | 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 | It was a month or so after we had begun dating.I had been sick with a cold for a little while and had been waiting so that I would not give her one too. We were sitting on the couch watching Coupling episodes. We were both snuggling on the couch. After looking into each other's eyes for a moment we knew it was time, and we each leaned in for the first. It did not stop me from being teased about having waited so long, though! "Nothing beats a first kiss." ~ 50 First Dates. (2004) | I had been dozing on Michael's couch, in and out of consciousness between awake and asleep. I was dreaming and in one of my dreams. When I had awoken it turned out I actually had said them aloud. He heard me say them and said them right back to me. "I love you even when you're sick and look disgusting." ~ Love Actually (2003) | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U

13: Michael and I decided to visit Myrtle Beach for our anniversary. His parents, Linda and Joe told us they had spent their first night as a married couple at Myrtle Beach. It ended up being a time for all of us to share together.
14: Places & Trips | We went to Atlanta for a weekend. We visited the CNN building and took a tour of the area including the broadcasting stages. We have few photos of this tour because they mandate no photography or video camera. A man from out tour group was escorted out of the area because he couldn't abide by these rules.
15: Michael and I tried Coca Cola flavors from around the world. Some great,some not so great. We enjoyed looking at all the memorabilia. They even exhibited videos and articles accounting the 77 day lifespan of New Coke.
