I was a college junior at JMU.

9 years ago today …  a bouquet of thistle & roses was delivered to my apartment door with a note from the cute boy I liked in my Creative Writing Class.

9 years ago today..  The cute boy took me out on a “Surprise” Valentine’s Day date to see Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night.

9 years ago today…  The cute boy cooked me one of the worst steaks of my life & smoked out his kitchen:

9 years ago today…  my husband asked me to be his girlfriend.
{The very dirty & wet garage where beer pong typically ensued}
And for the past 9 years, we’ve grown up together.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you & yours.

xoxo, Lauren
