This is our very first picture together, taken before we were "official". We were at my friend Lauren's party where the theme was "CEO and Corporate Ho's" hence the suit and my thigh high stockings.
This was at Kristian's old boss's summer work party at his house. We became "official" that night.
One Saturday we decided to go down to DC to check out the sites and museum togethers. This is in front of the WWII memorial.
For Kristian's 31st birthday I bought him tickets to see Jason Mraz in concert (our first dance was to Jason Mraz's I'm Yours). Here's a picture of us at the concert.
Our first Halloween we went to a local pumpkin patch and came home to carve pumpkins together.
At my friends Ashley and Morgan's rehersal dinner.
Then at Ashley and Morgan's wedding the next night.
Kristian took me trout fishing at one of his favorite spots. Afterwards we picked some apples and went home and ate trout and apple pie.
There is a spot in the woods by where Kristian grew up that is very special to him. It's where he and his childhood best friend would go fishing in high school. His friend was killed on prom night by a drunk driver. He told me once he would only take a girl he really loved to this spot.
He decided to carve our initials into one of the trees there.
This is before we left for my 10 year high school reunion. I can't believe my 10 year reunion was TWO years ago. God I'm getting old.
Us in front of the National Christmas Tree in D.C. Kristian had surgery on his neck at the beginning of Dec. '08 which required him to stay in the house and not ride in cars for two weeks. This was one of our first trips out of the house after his "house rest". As you can see he grew a beard while stuck in the house.
New Year's Eve '08-'09 We went to dinner at the restaurant where we had our first date.
The night we got engaged- 2/14/09
So those are some pictures of our first six months together. I can't believe how quickly time has flown by. These pictures feel like they were taken a lifetime ago yet at the same time feel like just yesterday. Hope you enjoyed my little walk down memory lane.
