It's almost Valentine's Day

(not sure what's up with the formatting on this post, I keep trying to fix it and Blogger isn't letting me...that's why the fonts look all weird)





and because we're getting married later this year, I thought it'd be fun to share how Justin and I met and got to where we are now!

So back in 2009 I was going to school for art and taking what were called 'foundations' classes. One of the classes was 3D Concepts, where we had to make sculptures out of things. There were two guys that sat next to me, and they were always talking to each other and generally acting like fools. The one wasn't all that interesting, but the other caught my attention. His name was Justin. We agreed to go to lunch together at Pita Pit after class one day.

I had just gotten out of a relationship, and Justin still had a girlfriend at the time. We continued to hang out as friends for a few month. Then he told me he had broken up with his girlfriend and did I want to go on an actual date? Of course I did!

From then on we were inseparable. He came with me to family holidays....


   
We celebrated birthdays together (this was the year my birthday theme was 'Tacky Tea Party' not sure what I'm doing but yes, Justin is wearing a skirt)



 We dated for a little over a year and then got engaged on October 15, 2010. It was such an amazing day!

We decided to have a long engagement because I was still in school at the time. So life went on, only now we were (and still are!) engaged. 


 
Now here we are today! The wedding will be in October of this year, and of course I will have a post dedicated to that when the time comes.
 
I'll leave you with this gem of a photo.
 
 
If that doesn't say true love, I don't know what does!
