1. Yesterday, November 17th, was actually our anniversary. Unfortunately, our schedules are kinda crazy right now, so we couldn't really celebrate. We will be doing something this evening to make up for it. Thursday is basically our only free evening all week. I work full time, and he is a full time student. He is also a bartender, so he works on the weekends. It is difficult at times with our conflicting schedules, but he's worth it. Seriously, look how handsome he is... Besides, I'm very proud of him for going back to school and working as hard as he does. I know that it won't be like this forever, so I can handle it.
2. Mike and I met at the bar where he works, 3 Monkeys. He was working the door that night, and I instantly had a small crush. I kept an eye on him all night, but I figured that would be it and I may or may not ever see him again. I am usually quite reserved, so going out of my way to pick up a guy is out of the question, but for some reason I got up the nerve to hit on him that night. I guess it was fate, because we went out on our first date the following week and I've been smitten ever since.
3. We started dating in November '08, moved in together in October '09, got a puppy together in January '10, and we are now celebrating two years. These are just a few of the major milestones in our relationship, but there has been a lot of amazing little adventures along the way as well. I look forward to seeing what happens next, and I hope to have many, many more adventures and milestones in the future. I will leave you with a few more pictures to tell our story...
