Kev and I got to take some cute pictures together for a special little project a while back. Unfortunately, we need to take some new ones but I didn’t want to waste these ones because I liked them so much. I figured I could still share them here. I don’t even remember if I knew I was pregnant in these photos. Have I told you any of the stories of how Kev and I got together before on the blog? I can’t remember if I have or not. Oh well, I thought today I could share one of those little stories from our past…
Kev and I met in Art History class in college. It was second semester of Sophomore year. I had just transferred in from another school. He was majoring in graphic design and I was majoring in art education and art history. I noticed him right away because well, he dressed like he would like the same music as me (stupid right? But that was what was important to me at the time). One day he sat next to me and we started talking. We both were in relationships at the time. I remember like 2 classes after we first met, he asked if I wanted a ride to go see a show that we both were going to. The shy girl that I was said “no” and was a little weirded out. Ha!
Over the next 2 years we become very close friends. We had all the same classes together and spent many, many hours together (with mutual friends too) in the studio at school. One day after bookmaking class, Kev asked me if we could go to my room for a bit. He needed to tell me something he said. We got up to the room and all the sudden I remember it feeling really awkward. He told me he was in love with me and he didn’t know what to do because he had a girlfriend and I had a boyfriend. I was in shock! Well, I kind of half knew it was coming. I think deep down I knew I loved him too. I was just too scared to make the big change from the loser boyfriend I had been dating for 5 years. I told him I didn’t know what he wanted me to do. I had a boyfriend. He said ok, but that he couldn’t hang out with me anymore because it was “too hard”. What a trickster. He knew what he was doing.
Time passed and he really did stop hanging out with me. He did however continue to hang out with all our friends and just not invite me along. He wore me down though. Finally, one day I realized I was completely over my boyfriend and had been for a very long time. I broke up with him and then that night Kev and I went on our first date. To see a band play of course. We never broke up and we never took a break. We were inseparable from that day on. We dated for 2 years before we decided to get engaged, married and move to Hawaii all in 3 weeks time. I guess you say the rest is history.
There are lots of funny stories about when we first started dating but I’ll save those for another day.
