Considering that it will be our 1 year anniversary in 3 days, I thought now would be a good time to formally introduce my boyfriend to all my readers. So everyone, meet Lucas. :) You may recognize him from here, here, here, and here.
I love how perfectly coordinated we are in these two photos. We probably could have gone back to high school and been the best dressed couple at prom. Haha. Believe it or not, we didn't plan this. The picture of me is from about a month before we met and the picture of him is from a few weeks after we started dating. Doesn't he look dashing? Sadly, he almost never dresses like this. But if I ask nicely (read: beg a little), he'll put on a button down shirt for me. ;)
Some random facts about us:
♥ We met at a gas station. From December to April of last year, I always noticed this super cute gas station attendant staring at me. He never said a word, so I didn't think much of it. Then on April 5, 2010, I finally asked him out. And the rest is history.
♥ Neither of us can remember the exact date we became a couple. Oops. For simplicity's sake, we just refer to the day we met as our anniversary date.
♥ We both enjoy hiking, watching the original Star Wars trilogy, eating, and watching Angels baseball and Lakers basketball on TV. He is still in the process of trying to explain football to me...without much luck.
♥ We keep track of our "relationship milestones" with what we call The Gayle and Lucas Lists. These lists include places to go, restaurants to eat at, and things to do. We also have a pretty long list of nicknames for each other. :)
♥ One of our favorite places to go is Downtown Disney and Disneyland. In fact, our first date was at Downtown Disney. We're going to Disneyland again on our anniversary date this Tuesday.
So there you have it. This is the Lucas who thinks I'm lovely even when I'm not wearing any makeup - the Lucas who thinks it's sexy how I can eat (almost) as much as he can. This is also the same Lucas who has gone with me to every chemo session...and doesn't mind when I whine and complain. I'm the luckiest girl in the world.
