One Fifth of My Life…


…has been spent with Matt (well, as of my birthday next week). Today is our fifth anniversary! We met my sophomore year in college and gradually started dating. Since we don’t have one specific day when anything became official, we just celebrate on October 12th because it was the first night we spent time together, chatting on the porch of a fraternity on a typical Wednesday night. Matt had long hair when I met him, so I thought he was kind of rugged and alternative. Little did I know that he enjoys poetry and regularly buys pastels for his wardrobe:)


He was quite mysterious back then and I wasn’t really sure if he liked me…


but he stuck around…


and moved to Boston with me…


and now he’s the love of my life!  Let’s hope this is just the beginning:)

    Awww, so sweet, happy anniversary!! There’s no better feeling than knowing you’ve found the person you want to explore life together with as a team. That’s my opinion anyways =)

      Well he visited sometime in September, but I didn’t run into him again or really carry on a conversation with him until October…
