Throwback Thursday

Since one of my goals for this blog is to use it as an "online scrapbook" since I don't actually scrapbook anymore I thought I would do a little....

Today I am going to "throwback" till when Ben and I were dating... 

A little history before you see the year and 1/2 of us dating!

Ben and I met in the 6th grade! All through high school we were like brother and sister....We talked to each other about girlfriends and boyfriends, always went on double dates, We would just randomly show up at each others houses, I went to his golf banquets with him....like I said Brother and Sister! My mom told me when I was a junior that Ben and I would end up getting married! I told her she was crazy!!

This is our where our story begin! We ended up going out to dinner with some friends and Ben and I ended up "paired" together...Later that night he kissed me! The rest is history!!
