our beginning

Looking for an email from a few years ago led me deep into my old email account and stumbling upon funny memories and notes from the past.  Emails from friends, family, and then... lots of emails from TL.

When TL and I first met, we were living 100 miles apart.  I was living in San Francisco... and he was commuting to come see me.  I didn't have great cell service while I was in school, so we spent a lot of our time communicating through email.  I am so glad we did - because I have it all saved.

Here were some of the pictures I found that he had emailed me from his iphone (this was before I had my own).
The first picture we ever took together on the couch in my studio.
 We walked around this little park in West Portal in SF just talking... 
 Our walk in the park eventually turned into a drive to Twin Peaks, he had never been there.  Such gorgeous views of the city.  We learned a ton about each other that day!
 And these were the flowers he sent me 'just because' after our date.  Aren't they beautiful!
I loved living there and getting to know him in SF... I wouldn't trade these memories for anything :)
He's actually laying on the couch in the background, I remember taking this with his phone and emailing myself.

I love looking back and thinking about how far we've come.  
I am crazy about this guy and feel lucky to be with someone who is funny, loving, and supportive.

How's that for a random post? :)
Hope you're having a wonderful week!!

I have been writing a 3 part series on my blog about "Our Love Story". It's been so heart warming to dig into my memory back to 7 years ago to when it all started for us. So fun and it gives you those butterflies all over again.

So sweet! Most of our earlier relationship was through texting and I don't have those texts anymore!
