Look how different we look! We met 3 years ago, on a spring break trip to Gulf Shores. I was seeing someone else, and looking forward to a week with my girlfriends. He was there with a bunch of friends, and coincidentally knew one of the girls that I was with. Thanks for deciding to meet up with all of our new friends Rachel!! Who knew I would have met the love of my life on that trip?
What a goofball this one is. I think his humor is what hooked me. I was addicted to conversations with him, because he always made me laugh. He LOVES cheesy lines, and can put a funny spin on just about everything. He even used silly pick up line text messages shortly after we began seeing each other. Thank goodness he wasn't serious! If he's not laughing, or doing a weird dance, something is WRONG. He dances to the beat of his own drum, and taught me to do the same.
Don't worry about anyone else, do what makes you happy. Be as you are, and those that are the most important will be glad that it shines through. Thank goodness for these lessons. He saved me from a lot of heartache from old friends with these lessons. It doesn't matter who he is around, whether his boss, a parent, a friend, or a kid-Jason can only be Jason. He has no idea how to mold into what people think he ought to be in certain situations, and I LOVE that. And that's what so many people love about him.
What a romancer he is. Our first "official" date was June 16, 2006. He took me to the top of a parking structure of our college, and we watched the sunset as he played music and danced with me. We make the trip to that empty structure every year. As weird of a date it was, it sure beat dinner and a movie!!
We have a TON of pictures. He's so sentimental. What a girl haha! He LOVES taking pictures together, and I'm so glad we have so many. Granted, a lot of them are the same pose as the one above, but we have a lot of different times in our lives documented thanks to his sentimental heart.
He's also a HUGE softy. He fell in love with our niece probably as quickly as I did (at the first moment we heard she was coming!). He sat with my entire family that day, only to leave for a few short hours to take an exam. He was there for her birth, and our first meeting of sweet Riley. Too bad so many people gush over her, he doesn't get to hold her nearly as much as he'd like!! But Riley likes to laugh at his funny faces.
He'll be a great Dad someday. I always joke that we will need kids soon (but not too soon!) just so Jason will have someone to play with and watch cartoons with. They'll love his love for board games, frisbee, and the toy aisle at Wal-Mart. (Jason has started many stories with me by saying: "So today, I stopped by Wal-Mart to play and you will never guess what I found.")
There you have him. My Boston born, southern raised, music lovin', 5 year old trapped inside a man's body. I love him. :)
