1 Year anniversary…kind of.

My mom will probably find this post more interesting than anyone else. She’s always asking me about this.

One year ago today Mike and I started emailing each other. It’s weird to think that something as simple as this:

My names Mike. I like a lot of what you have to say in your profile. How long have you been at FSU and what’s your major?”

basically started our relationship. 

This is the weekend he asked me to be his lady. I don’t like this picture but it’s the only one we took together that weekend…
This was at Mike’s friends’ wedding after we’d been dating for a WHOLE WEEK. Let’s not discuss my roots.
And we went to Italy together in December.

Like I said in an earlier post,  he wasn’t even going to email me.

I replied: 

“Hey –
I’m Anna. I’m just finishing up my third year at FSU.  I’m a creative writing major.  I’ve never been good at match or science and I love writing so I figured I’d pursue it and see where it takes me. haha. What do you do in SC?”

Yes. I said “match” instead of “math.” I still cringe about this. I also wish I hadn’t included that “haha,” but oh well.

Mike and I met in person on April 16, and became a couple May 17 so this spring holds a lot of milestones for us. I can’t believe how quickly the time has flown. 

He’s coming in town tonight and I fully intend on celebrating our fanniversary with wine, sharp cheddar cheese, and Stardust.  If you haven’t seen Stardust, you need to. Seriously. Robert DeNiro is a homosexual lightening harvester. It’s hilare. And we’ve watched it together about 2346262 times and I’m planning (unbeknown to Mike) to make it a tradition. WEEEEE. I rented a classy hotel room for two nights so DON’T EXPECT TO HEAR FROM ME.
