I came across some pictures from when Blake and I were dating. Most of these pictures were taken either when Blake was home on leave from the Navy or in San Marcos. But, they bring back great memories, so I thought I’d share!

{Christmas 2006}

Blake and I “officially” started dating around Christmas 2006 when he was home for a few weeks from Japan. He left to go back to Japan right before New Year’s, but was back less than a month later when we found out Greg {his dad} had to have open heart surgery. This allowed Blake to be home another month and we didn’t have to do the “long distance” thing.

Then, in February 2007 he went back to Japan {again} and  got out of the Navy May of that year. We spent EVERY weekend together as Blake would make the 4 hour drive down to San Marcos to visit me from Dallas as I was taking a crazy load of classes to finish up my degree in Healthcare Administration so that I could move back to Dallas in the fall and do my internship that was required for graduation.

We were engaged by December of that year and married in May 2008. I absolutely LOVE looking back at these pictures and that special time in our lives!
