7 Quick Takes about my Valentine!

1.  John and I met at a mutual friend's wedding in California.  Here is the only picture of us together when we met!

2.  At the time, he was living in Texas and I was in Cleveland.  We emailed back and forth for a while, then started calling, and ultimately started visiting.  Here are some pictures from way back :-)

3.  For our first Valentine's Day together, John flew to Cleveland to see me.  He surprised me a couple days early and then proceeded to break up with me!  We had an awkward 5 day visit that included a trip to Notre Dame, many movies, and some bowling.  After he left, we didn't talk again for 6 weeks.

4.  Thankfully after "giving me up for lent" as we now joke, he came to his senses and we got back together.  To celebrate our renewed relationship, I took John skydiving!  (I can't seem to locate a picture of John, but trust me, he looked hot in that jumpsuit!  Ha!)

5.  That summer I met his family, he met my extended family and we got engaged!

6.  We were married a year later in the summer of 2008 and finally moved to the same city!

7. And now live happily ever after :-)

 Happy Valentine's Day, John!
