Kevin and I met in college in 2001, though we did not attend the same college. I (Jamie) was a freshman, and he was a sophomore when we met. It was over Spring Break in my home town, and our first date was dinner and a concert.
Though the good times and the difficult times, there will always be unconditional love.
Because it was close to my birthday, Kevin bought me a giant teddy bear (that was my college mascot) with a birthday balloon. Things were going really great, until, as we were walking back to his car, I stepped wrong off the curb and twisted my ankle! I tried to play it off and pretend it didn't hurt because I was so embarrassed, but he was super sweet and took care of me and got me home safely so I could tend to my ankle. I guess I didn't scare him off, because when I invited him up to a dance at my college a couple weeks later, he didn't hesitate to say yes. And the rest, as they say, is history! We dated long distance from 2001-2004 when I graduated college. I moved back home and Kevin got a job in my hometown. This was the first time in 4 years that we actually lived in the same city!
In April 2005, Kevin proposed and in June of 2006 we were married. Three months after getting married, Kevin got the opportunity to promote into a new position with his job, but it was located in a large city in Texas. We moved in October of 2006 and purchased our first home together. We moved into our current home in 2013 which is in a suburb.
