Adam and I met 11 years ago today. Looking at these pictures from that time is sort of hilarious - we both look like such kids!
That summer (2003) I worked at MTSU as a summer orientation assistant. Each CUSTOMS session - the name of orientation - was 2 days, and I couldn't even tell you how many sessions we did all summer. I led the country Bahamas (noticing a theme?) and met so many freshmen, but Adam was in my group on June 24-25. I didn't normally take pictures of my groups, but the group he was in was so much fun that for whatever reason I made them let me take their picture on the last day.
I wish I had made someone snap the photo of me in the picture with them, but alas... we have to settle for a picture of me with all the other SOAs to have a reference of what I looked like back then.
Adam swears he knew the day he met me that he was going to spend his life with me. I admittedly didn't have any such enlightening moment, but I remember thinking he was fun.
Over the time we were both at MTSU together, we ran into each other on campus from time to time - but I can't say we ever really even spent that much time together.
I won't bore you with the whole long story (as I'm sure I've shared it on here somewhere already anyway), but it's so crazy to look back and see how we weaved in and out of each other's life over the years. I sit here today, closing in on our first anniversary... if you had asked me on june 24, 2003 if I thought that would have even been possible? Well, I don't know what I would have said, but I don't think I would have imagine our story to turn out even half as beautifully as it has...
