2: On a night out in Broadripple. After meeting at a friend's house for some drinks, the group headed to Brothers. We noticed each other earlier that summer at the same bar, but this night would prove to be different! I remember noticing right away that you were fun and outgoing, but learned quickly that you were also genuine and sincere and everyone aound you seemed to just love you. I think you might have thought something of me too because we hit it off pretty quickly! | Our paths cross...
3: You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly. | At one point during the evening you asked if you could buy me a drink. Somewhere between winding through the crowd and ordering me a vodka soda water, you reached back and grabbed my hand. We both knew there was something there. We danced with friends at Rock Lobster, and at the end of the night, shared our frirst kiss!
4: Our first date- Yogo Kiss. We sat outside and enjoyed our frozen yogurt on a pretty August night. We were both nervous about getting chocolate and berry toppings stuck in our teeth. I told my parents about you over salad and pizza at Napolese later that week. You wanted to come bring me ice cream when I had my wisdom teeth out but I was playing hard-to-get. You texted me almost every day for a couple weeks and finally we met at Champs for drinks!
5: We fell in love... | Champps- August 2010 I had just come from having dinner with the girls at Cheesecake Factory. I told you I wasn't sure if I would join but thankfully showed up! I brought Kelsey and you brought Krishna and we all met for drinks at Kate's apartment. This was such a memorable night. We danced all night to the live band (Dave and Rae). You and I were the last ones left, listening to the band and having a heart-to-heart at a table outside. We continued our talk as we walked back to Kate's. There was a reservoir by the apartment where we stopped. It was this moment, after such a perfect evening, that I held you close and realised that you were something special.
6: We didn't have much summer left before school but the remainder consisted of movies, trips to Bric for ice cream, and lunch dates at Taste Cafe. Our first fight was at your house while watching The Wedding Date, but it was okay because we constantly showed we would do just about anything to be with each other... remember that $50 cab ride? | August 19, 2010
7: Y O U M A K E M E S M I L E | At the end of the summer, we went on our first real date, dinner at Mama Corolla's. We shared white wine and bread. You had futtuccini alfredo and I had cheese manicotti. We drove all the way to Cheesecake Factory for dessert and you guessd my favorite kind of cheesecake! It was the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake and we ordered a slice to share. We saw Eat, Pray, Love in theatres, and you kissed me on my doorstep at the end of the night and it was perfect! This is the night we decided to make "us" work!
8: We left Indy to go back to school, four long hours apart. Before labor day I visited you at Wabash. We went to dinner with your friends at Little Mexico in Crawfordsville. What a great night with the Fiji guys and a perfect weekend together! | True friendship continues to grow even over the longest distance...
9: The first time you said "I love you", I was at Camp Oty'Okwa for cross country training. We were on the phone one night before bed. The words slipped out on accident but I said it right back and couldn't stop smiling that night. | Labor Day weekend, you visited me at ONU. We were so excited to see each other. This was when we realized that being 240 miles apart was not going to be easy. We knew it was worth it. so over the next year we spent countless hours on the phone and in the car to be with each other. This was true commitment!
10: In just one year, we shared so many wonderful memories at Wabash...
11: ...And at Ohio Northern.
12: May we always remember... The Monon Bell game- I missed the actual game to study for a test, but your wonderful family and friends kept you company... and let's not forget that Wabash beat DePauw fourty-seven to zero!
13: Lupe Fiasco concert in the Wabash gym and Fiji Island- Complete with a tiki bar, sand dance floor lit with hanging lights, and the famous fiji punch! | ...There were tears all around at the end of the night. The senior Fiji' boys will certainly be missed!
14: And of course, let's not forget nights at the Neon Cactus at Purdue... Cactus cups in hand! | Remember FIJI fall formal at the Conrad Hotel in downtown Indy. Dinner at the hotel, lots of dancing, and drinks at Champps to end a perfect night.
15: L | O | V | And FIJI spring formal- Friday happy hour in the Embassy Suites lobby, a room on the 9th floor, and relaxing with friends. Saturday breakfast in the lobby, sight seeing and riding the L to visit Mary Ellen in Wrigleyville. We saw Wrigley Field and Millenium Park, went to lunch, and went shopping! Such a fun day to set the mood for a great night. That evening we had dinner with the FIJI guys at Buca Di Beppo. After dinner, the dance took place in the ballroom at the hotel.
