It's hard to believe that Drew and I have been married for FOUR years! Time has flown by.. and we were talking last night that it's been even longer than that since we dated for two years prior. We both broke personal relationship records when we made it past 2 years :)This picture was taken in July 2003, a couple of days after my 25th birthday. We were with a group of friends at 503 Oyster Bar in Fort Smith. Anybody who didn't know us at the time would assume that we were "together" then, but we weren't. I wanted a picture of us together to "give to my sister" who is also friends with Drew! I secretly liked him but didn't tell anybody.. I was dating Brian and Drew was dating a girl from Chicago named Dawn.. That night, after several drinks, Drew leaned over (while sitting right next to Brian) and confessed that he had a crush on me.. I must have lit up like a light bulb! I confessed the same crush and from that point on we knew we had to figure out a way to be together! Was it SCARY? Absolutely! But we just KNEW :)
Two years later we were married at Immaculate Conception in Fort Smith. It was a perfect day and the beginning of a wonderful life together! I love you today, Drew!
