On June 24, 2003, I was working at MTSU as a freshman orientation assistant. Adam showed up that day to attend orientation and was placed in my group. While I didn't make a habit of taking pictures of all of my groups that summer, his group was super fun and so I decided to take one. The photo in the top left corner below shows him in that group picture and me in the picture of all of the orientation assistants that summer. It's so fun to me that have this picture of Adam from when we first met, though at the time we had no idea where life would take us.
It wasn't until 2012 that we started dating, but our lives weaved in and out of each other's over the years in between. Adam claims he knew the day he met me that we would end up together. I think he just thought I was cute. Even still, it's always a fun story.
I'm thankful for our story and for this man I met 14 years ago today. We have had so many adventures together over the years, especially the last 5 we've been together, and I love thinking about the many more adventures to come!
