colly + crissy = l.o.v.e.

I am sooooo excited because this week, Friday, September 17th, marks Collin and I's 1 and a half year anniversary! Although we have officially been dating since December 2008, Collin and I became a couple on March 17, 2009. Long story short.. Collin and I kept our "dating" a secret for a really long time. 

Sadly, Collin will not be here on the 17th due to soccer travels, so we decided, lets celebrate our love earlier rather than later. So, tonight and tomorrow are our celebration nights (being that we are both so busy until about 5 o'clock everyday, the night is the only time slot that really works). Collin is cooking my favorite meal for me tonight, Mandarin & Brown Sugar Pork Chops with garlic, creamy mashed potatoes. Yum!!! So tonight is his night. Then, tomorrow, I have decided to do something really fun and random, but something I know Collin will LOVE... I am taking Collin to "Color Me Mine": the paint your own pottery studio (http://www.colormemine.com/). They have hundreds of pottery to choose from: bowls, plates, sculptures, etc. You paint it either free-hand or they have art staff nearby with stencils to help you create your perfect piece. Then, they glaze it so its able for use and it looks shiny and amazing. 

Next week, when Collin gets back, we will do a gift exchange. We usually never do gifts because it is so materialistic and both of us would rather just be in each other's company than spend money on a gift, but this time, we felt, we both deserved a little something extra special for all of the hard work we have been doing this past year. We have come so far both as a couple and as individuals so we figured it is well-earned.  

I love Collin John Harrison with all my heart. He is my best friend. My rock. My soccer star. And the greatest boyfriend EVER. He loves me for me. Through thick and thin. And I would not trade him for the world. I really feel that we will be together, yes I am going to say it, f.o.r.e.v.e.r. He has the greatest and biggest heart anyone could possibly have and I am glad he is mine.
