Story of Us

Y'all don't know this, but next week Mr. D and I will officially celebrate our second year of marriage.  That's right!  I've been Mrs. D for {nearly} two years now and I'm the luckiest lady in the world to have him.
In honor of the Anniversary of our nuptials, I'm going to be posting all about love for the next week.  So, if y'all aren't in to that sorta thing you may want to ignore my posts for a few days.  'Cause I love love.  (And you should too!)

Mr. D and I met at Florida way back when.  He grew up with my girl (and college roomie), Kim.  One night Kim invited some of her high school friends to hang out with us...Mr. D and I met, talked, laughed (A LOT), we danced and screamed at the top of our lungs sung along to lots of country songs.  I asked him to accompany me to my sorority date function the next week where I quickly discovered he had the best personality of anyone I had ever met (and lets not forget how adorable he is!) and the rest is history.

We dated for about five years and then one February evening Mr. D asked me to marry him (but that's a whole other story which y'all have already heard).  So, without further ado, here are a few pics to take y'all down our 'lil courtship memory lane.  :)

Our 1st date.
Sorority Date Function to Universal Studios Halloween Horror Nights.

A few months into our courtship.
Did you know my man used to have long hair? Such a surfer boy.

There he is tearing up the waves.  :)

Our first Gator game together.

Our 1st Dating Anniversary at Disney World.

A couple years later with Kim at a concert for Mr. D's Birthday.
(We owe it all to her for inviting him to hang out with us all those years ago.)

We're on a boat.

Another Gator game day.  

Daytona for the races.

A couple months before the wedding.

And now (if you're still reading) you know how it all began.  :)  Sorry for all my sappiness...sometimes I get carried away.  Looking at these pictures made me remember some fun memories and oh-my-wow we look like babies!  I don't remember looking so young, but I guess we did.  Haha.  Time flies when you're having fun!

Hope y'all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend honoring all our soldiers and remembering your loved ones and spending quality time with the ones you still have the pleasure to see.
