a good year

we've been doing a lot of reminiscing around here lately. reminiscing about our first and second dates...that led to seeing each other everyday. & remembering the first time we cuddled/held hands that led to 'i love yous'. all of this happened in one short month. a year ago.

brian & i started dating the middle of october...in fact im pretty sure our {second date} was on a thursday. october 14th. to be exact. (this is a big deal for me, because i don't remember dates)-i say second date because that's when it all started. :) anyway...i really liked him, but had some major commitment issues. (i'd never found a boy i liked enough to commit to...so i didn't really know how/want to do it.)

well obviously he was a keeper, because i got over my issues pretty fast.

so, on november 15th i told him i'd be his girlfriend.
& then he told me he loved me.
(i know that date because it's written in my journal)

one short month after that, i had already figured out i wanted to marry him.  i still can't believe it happened so fast. but i'm sure glad it did.

i found this picture the other day. it's the first picture we took together.

and here we are a year later, almost exactly to date. doin the same thing. :)
i know anniversaries don't come until you've been married for a year. & some people do the "we've been married for 4 months" thing. yeah...not us. that usually doesn't even cross our minds on the month marks.
 but yesterday marks a year that we've been together. & it definitely crossed my mind.
like brian said, the beginning of us dating "seems like a lifetime ago."
 but at the same time it feels like it was just yesterday.
isn't it funny how life is like that?

i love this boy. i couldn't have asked for better.
