8 years ago today...

Chris and I were sitting in a dorm room at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. We had been in Alaska for over five weeks and would be returning home in the next few days. The conversation ran something like this...

Laura: So, what happens when we get home?

Chris: What do you want to happen?

Laura: My sister is going to ask me if I have a boyfriend and I want to say yes.

Chris: Ok, sounds good to me.

And that's how we started dating.

Out of small beginnings come great things.

I am totally that sister. And when you came home, I asked, you said yes. Totally made my day! :)

Gotta love the DTR talks. That's pretty great though.

Matt asked me in a text...at least you got a face to face interaction on that one...even if you were the one that had to 'ask'!
