The day we started dating..
Spent our first July 4th together
He came to all my softball games
He borrowed his brothers truck and drove me to school on my first day of senior year
He came home every weekend and we went to all of the football games at my high school
The night before he left for college
We went up to visit him his first weekend at Tech and I got to see the campus for the first time & his and Nathan's dorm!
Celebrated my 18th birthday
Welcomed fall time with trunk-or-treat at church...
Blackout football game at MTSU that he drove all the way home for...
and double dates to the corn maze.
We celebrated our first Christmas
and our first NYE!
Went to CYC in Gatlinburg with our church!
I was out a whole week due to snow and Tech cancelled classes for the first time for snow in years, Matthew drove home and surprised me and we spent the whole afternoon out in the snow.
Celebrated our first Valentine's Day together
With the help of friends I asked him to my senior prom
We attended my senior prom with our best friends
Spent our first Easter together
He came home for my academic's award
He watched me graduate from high school
He moved back home for the summer.
We celebrated our 1 year anniversary with a movie and a picnic at the greenway
Our first year was fun! We learned a lot about each other and figured out how to make it work living an hour away from each other. We lived for the weekends and loved breaks from school. We were growing as a couple, while still being able to do our own things during the week while we were away from each other.
Look for year two later today!!
