How We Began

I said this morning that it was my goal for today to document more about Jake’s and my relationship. I transcribed the video I re-shared this morning in this post and made this simple page with the text. The blue words are mine blue and the gray are Jake’s. Obviously, I talk more than he does. Hah! This will go in between these two pages, which I made in 2009:

Lifeguard Love

Our First Date

I’ll also add in a bit about how our crushes began on another 8×5 x 11 page behind this one, as well as the note that Jake slipped into my locker to ask me out!

Now I’m off to hang out with my Valentine.
