The coolest gift Jake ever got for me was this charm bracelet.

Charm Bracelet

You can’t read it very well, but the heart is engraved with today’s date (March 21); the day of our first date. Jake bought this for me for my birthday the first year we were together. Each charm represents a date that we went on the first few months we were dating. Watch us tell you the story of our first date here.

Here are the charms, left to right. The first one is a nautical star. I’m not sure if that one’s actually because of a date… may it was just because we were life guards. Or because I like punk rock. The second is a little “X” because I’m Straight Edge. I took Jake to a local show at a Christian coffeehouse called Fifth Quarter. Next is a little swimmer; Jake came to one of my swim meets. Then a little flip flop shoe, because I cut my foot while walking at a lake with him and he had to first aid at me prince charming style. My favorite is the little book. It’s engraved with “The Little Prince” (my favorite book). I asked him to read it and he LOVED it! Jake was the first guy I had dated that got that book. Lastly there’s a music note for all the times we’d drive around listening to CDs (most of which are represented on here).

It is hard to believe that all of those dates were seven years ago! Thanks for coming to our blog party. Check back, we’ll be posting every hour!
