I Kinda Heart You

via.
Six years ago today, something wonderful happened (over a game of beer pong)... I met a tan Portuguese soccer stud named Kevin who would turn out to be my college sweetheart and love of my life.  Technically this is the anniversary of the day we met, but since we've been almost inseparable ever since and the day of our first official date is my birthday (and my birthday doesn't like to share), this has become our anniversary.  Apologies in advance for the mushiness below...
I am still amazed at how far we've come... from Nasties to whichever DC restaurant week participant we are going to tonight (please tell me I want to menu browse!).  Some days I forget you are a separate person because of how our minds often work as one.  Sometimes, I even forget you have a separate body because when I crack up at something on TV, I slap your knee or when it is cold outside I instinctively look for your hand or pocket to warm my hands (you are freakishly warm btw).  I know we have a lot ahead of us (good things, difficult things, exciting things), but thinking back to when we first met, I think we've come a long way.

Back then we looked something like this (circa 06-07?).
I guess some things don't change (80's cover band circa 2011).
We supported each other through college and survived  Narnia Ithaca.
Then you moved to DC with me only to find out...
... that you had been tricked because DC decided to channel Ithaca (circa Snomageddon 2010).
You even let us add another crazy fur-ball to the pack despite your concerns for never having owned a dog because you understood my need to be surrounded puppies.

I can't wait for many more years (and puppies) filled with laughter, adventure, food, and most of all love!  Happy 6 years Kev!

Love,
Julie
