8 years and some days ago I was sitting in my high school science class wondering what in the world my teacher was talking about watching the clock tick until the bell rang. However; after a while I began to really look forward to Mr. Stark's science class and Ms. Keane's english class. Why you aak? Because of the boy.. It's always been about the boy.
It was my sophomore year that I met Mike.
He played football. I cheered.
We wore Catholic school uniforms.
Went to every dance together except the first one when we didn't know each other.
We were silly and awkward in young love.
I know, could we be more cliche?
Mike and I at our Senior Homecoming Dance
We graduated high school and went our seperate ways to take on the big bad "real world" of college. He went off to the snowy land of Boulder, Colorado and I came here to Sunny San Diego.
Lots of things have happened since then and we have weathered some troubled waters. Through it all we came out on top and after college graduation when he came back to California for real, we realized that we just didn't want to be apart anymore - plain and simple. So we got back together after 4 years of crazy ups, downs and other shenanigans (also some of the most fun years with our friends) and it has been just the best since then.
We are now living in San Diego where the sun is shinning almost everyday of the year - it really is amazing. Who knows where we will end up or what we will do with our lives but what I do know is that we will stand by each other and there is no where else I would rather be than with him.
Happy (late) Valentine's Day to everyone!
Remember to always tell your people that you love them as often as possible!
And maybe show your love by giving some sweet treats :)
