just one question

This is Jess.

I didn't like Jess back in junior high because he and his best friend teased me a couple times in English class (which he claims was warranted because I would grade their papers so harshly when we passed them to our neighbors to correct). We don't have memories of each other after I crossed out his face in the 8th grade yearbook until junior year of high school when we became unlikely friends.

He was crushing on a couple of my friends, and I was okay being the therapist for him and our other friend when it came to counsel about the dating game. Eventually, though, we realized we actually liked each other. One night at scout camp he carved this:
Last weekend we drove up to that spot. He was quiet most of the drive, yet I didn't suspect a thing...He led me to the tree and said, "There are millions of girls in the world, but you're the one I can't live without."
I'm marrying my soulmate!

  13. Oh my goodness!! Congrats! You totally came into my work the other day (Cougar Creations) asking about wedding announcements and I was thinking "I SWEAR that's Jane from H&J! Maybe I should ask her.. It's got to be her right? But she asked about wedding announcements... She's not engaged.. Or is she? Maybe it's not Jane :(" Hahaha, so happy for you! And I LOVE your ring. :)
