It's Been a Year?

If you would have told me that 5 years after I graduated high school, that I would be dating one of my classmates I would have said you were crazy.

I even left the state to go to college at Miami University, just so I could meet new people and get away from the "norm." Well, five years later I moved back to my hometown to accept an engineering job with the company I interned for during college. Once I was back I got reconnected with old friends and one of those people was Mike.

Today, I have been dating this amazing guy for a year and it has been one hell of a ride.

We've known each other forever. But last September, during the weekend of the Michigan vs. Notre Dame football game, I was at the local Buffalo Wild Wings with my girlfriends having drinks. Mike had been texting me throughout the night about how I should meet up with him at our local club afterwards. The game ended up pretty epic so I texted him, "Order me a beer. I am on my way."

I got the girls together and we headed to the club. Sure enough, Mike was waiting by the front door and handed me my beer. That started everything... He had me at "here's your beer." Haha! We had the best night ever and I was hooked.

Shortly after that on September 27th, 2011, he asked me to be his girlfriend in the parking lot of the ice rink after his hockey game.

It has now been a year of numerous hockey games, TV series marathons, dinners at random restaurants we find, movie dates, and bottles of wine. He is hands down the greatest thing to happen to me... Sappy, yet true.

{Cheers, babe! Here's to many more years together. Happy 1 Year Anniversary!}
So does anyone have any advice for me? How to keep the love alive? I need all the help I can get. I don't want this boy to get away. Thanks, my lovely followers!

In the meantime, I cannot wait to celebrate the first holiday we had together again... Halloween. We will be the losers who will do a "couple costume" this year. So excited... time to start brainstorming!
