So I totally forgot to tell y'all

But yesterday marked 4 years that Forrest and I have been together. 4 years ago, yesterday, Forrest and I went on our first date to the Banff Mountain Film Festiival. We hit it off pretty well, and here we are four years later. I never thought that we'd be here. From the moment I met Forrest (several weeks before our date), I was head over heels. But I just knew there was no way he'd ever fall for me... my history with guys (at least good, decent guys) was pretty bleak. So when he called me a week after we met and asked me out, I was shocked. I still thought that he only meant to go out as friends. But he paid for dinner. He bought the film tickets. He called me later that week after our date and we talked for several hours. Three weeks after that date, I was still in denial until, at dinner one night, with several friends, he reached his foot under the table and started playing footsies. Y'all, this may seem childish, and juvenile, but it was SO FREAKIN' AWESOME. You don't just play footsies with anyone!! But it's been a wonderful journey so far, and I'm so happy to be with the man of my dreams... the man I never thought would fall for me, but he did. Happy Four Years, Baby!! I love you!!!
