flashback friday: "in like."

july 1, 2004.  this is the first picture sam & i ever took together.  we aren't even officially dating here.  we're just barely "in like."

it was summer break & sam had come to seattle from eastern washington with his dad & brother to see a mariner's game.  i was home from wsu for the weekend & well, long story short (i'm skipping the part where i ate a whole plate of garlic fries & almost hit a pedestrian while driving, you're welcome) sam ended up extending his stay in seattle & catching a ride back to school with me, sending his dad & brother home by themselves.  i think they call that "seeing about a girl."

we went to another mariner's game & spent some time hanging out downtown.  this was the weekend that totally sealed the deal for me.  i wanted to be this guy's girlfriend.  i really really liked him.  things with sam just came naturally... it was like i had met my best friend.  conversation came easy, i felt like i'd always known him.  he thought i was funny, & i felt like i was funnier around him.  we had the same sense of humor & i laughed at everything he said.  genuinely.

after a year & a half of dating, almost five years of marriage & a baby later, i still feel the same way.  not only am i totally in love with him, i still really really like him.  he's still my best friend & he still makes me a better person each & every day.

we're truly, madly, deeply "in like."

  11. I love thinking back to being "in like" because I so vividly remember it, and I didn't even know that we'd be together forever. It's so cool to think back to when we were completely oblivious to how our lives would change and come together.
