Tech has a concert every year and Dierks Bentley was preforming. Matthew drove home and picked me up and brought me back to Cookeville for the concert and then drove me back home after.
Celebrated our third Thanksgiving together
We went to Opryland Hotel in Nashville to make pictures and see the lights

Celebrated Matthew and Nathan's 21st birthday with a surprise dinner party at our favorite Mexican place in Murfreesboro

Spent our third Easter together
The first week after classes were finished last May we made a three hour trip to Holiday World, you can read more about that HERE
We went to a Sounds Game in Nashville and LOVED it!
For our 3 year anniversary I surprised Matthew with a drive in at my house, you can read more about that HERE
And then the very next day Matthew surprised me with buying all of my furniture I needed for my apartment and he and his family spend Memorial Day weekend painting it and hauling it up to Cookeville and setting it up in my new room! I honestly had NO idea, I remember thinking it was weird that he didn't invite me over for their Memorial Day cookout but I really didn't think about it all that much because we were cooking out with my family. You can read more about that HERE
We celebrated our third anniversary with dinner and a movie!
Like I said, our third year held A LOT for us. After three years of only seeing each other on the weekends and during breaks from school I decided to move to Cookeville and transferred to Tennessee Tech University. I moved in with two girls from the SOC here. I started working full time in Cookeville. I actually found out I got the job on our anniversary last year. I moved to Cookeville in the middle of June and Matthew finished up his internship and moved back to Cookeville in August. Starting in August we were living in the same area code and we LOVE it.
Some pictures from our date nights!
I have no idea why this collage has a blue tint to it lol
