This is a photo of Chris and me, taken in 1999, the first summer we were dating. It's amazing to look back and realize how simple life was back then (and how well rested we were!). It's equally amazing to realize how far we've come since then; how much we've weathered and grown and how we have evolved, both as individuals and as a couple. There was so much waiting for us on the horizon, including a marriage and two children.
Yes, that's a mad-bomber hat that I'm wearing. Why? I don't know. We'd meet up at someone's apartment, and head out bowling with a group of friends. Sometimes we would find the oddest things to wear....just because. And we had a blast.
