Seven Years and Counting.

It's been seven years today since Mike and I got married. Wow, I can't believe we still haven't unwrapped the china! No really, time has seriously flown by...

I vividly remember seeing him walking down the halls at Cal Poly. I thought he was sooo handsome and was very excited to see him in one of my first classes. Turns out he was a Geology major, too! I think our first class together was Minerology, Fall 1999. He had me at Ordered Atomic Arrangement. We became study partners and it wasn't too long before studying became "studying". We eventually became a couple.

He left Cal Poly about six months before me. The Air Force brought him to Wyoming so we were apart of a huge chunk of time. I would fly out there when I could, and he'd fly back out to CA when he could. He was able to come home for the holidays. It was Christmas 2001 that he surprised me with an engagement ring.

June 17, 2002 is when we exchanged vows in front of a small group of our friends and family (we would have our huge wedding and reception {Mike calls it the Public Viewing} the following Spring). I left Cal Poly and moved to Wyoming with my husband.

The rest is the first few chapters in our history book. I love you Baby! Happy Anniversary.
