Happy 5 Year Anniversary to MD and me!! :)
No it is not our wedding anniversary, (we aren't even married yet), but it is the 5 year anniversary of when MD and I first started dating. For some of you that might not seem like a very long time, but trust me, for me, it is.
Prior to meeting MD I never really made it past the one year mark in relationships... actually they usually didn't last past the 9 month mark because around then is when I would start getting bored with things or things would start to get rocky and
For the longest time I refused to date MD and I refused to even acknowledge that there was something there. My Jersey BFF AP came to visit me at Bucknell and she assumed that MD and I had dated at some time in the past and I just hadn't told her about it because of the apparent "chemistry" that we had... I told her she was crazy... then a month later MD & I were dating.

Eventually I guess we decided to call ourselves a couple... MD made his facebook relationship status as "In a relationship" and things kind of just went from there. I refused to admit that we were dating until he officially asked me... which he eventually did. It's really funny how things like this work out at times. On November 15, 2006 we officially started dating.
For our first date we went to see the James Bond movie "Casino Royale" at the movie theater in Seilingsgrove, PA. Our next big thing after that was his fraternity formals where I finally really started to admit that we were a couple.

Us at the end of the semester
Before I knew it I was graduating (a semester early) and I was unsure of what was going to happen with the two of us. I honestly didn't think we would make it because well MD was going to still be at Bucknell and I was going to be home in New Jersey working. Somehow we managed to make it last during his last semester at Bucknell... he made a bunch of trips on New Jersey and I made countless trips back to Bucknell. Through it all our relationship managed to grow stronger and not fall apart like I had thought it would.

Next thing I knew we were both graduating from Bucknell... still together and still going strong. MD ended up with a job down in the King of Prussia, PA area... I ended up going to law school in Wilmington, DE... and somehow after being together about a year and a half we moved in together.

MD and I have been through a lot of ups and downs together, we've had a lot of firsts together, we've had our fights, but we have made it through EVERYTHING all because we are stronger together, as a team. We are a team. He is the love of my life and I really don't know what I would do without him. He has helped to make me who I am today.
