Five years ago today, after New Testament Survey class, I asked a really pretty girl if she wanted to go on a walk with me, and she said yes. It was at least 9:30pm by then and we walked up to the park by the local highschool, and I asked her if she wanted to sit on a bench with me, and she said yes. Then I rambled on for a little bit while I nervously kicked some gravel pebbles with my toe and eventually asked her if she would like to date me, and she said yes. Then we were really happy and I asked her if she wanted to walk all the way to Crabby Joe’s restaurant where a large group of students were hanging out, and she said yes. Then when we got there I asked her if she wanted to share a strawberry milkshake with me, and she said yes. Then I asked her if she wanted me to pay, and she said yes. .. !! .. Just kidding I didn’t ask her that.
Here’s to five wonderful years with a wonderful girl by my side who has made all the difference in my life.
Here’s an old slideshow – it needs serious updating! I’ll see if we can’t whip something up. But in the meantime here’s a folksy song with some pictures of our dating life.
And here are two more recent pics, with a notable addition in one of them.
