Summer Memories

I was browsing through some of our old photos and came across a few from our first Summer together, way back on the ol' days of 2008. You'll have to forgive me for the random nature of this post, but I wanted to share a few memories of those days!

I met his parents that June, and a couple months later we helped them make cherry jam! They have miniature cherry bushes in their backyard, and they make the best cherry jam ever.

We also went to his Grandpa's cabin up North. We spent the weekend huddling inside because it was so windy and rainy! Yet, it was one of the funnest weekends I have ever had. I just loved Josh's family from the very beginning- they welcomed me with open arms and made me feel so at home!

The night we got back to the cities, Josh dropped me off at my apartment and we watched the movie "Juno." After the movie, we sat and talked for a while. At one point, he chuckled a little to himself. "What?" I questioned him, expecting to hear some funny anecdote or something. Instead, he just looked at so seriously me and said "I love you." For the first time.

We had so much fun spending that Summer together! It was so emotional and yet wonderful at the same time! I knew I was falling in love with him, and that my life was going to drastically change.. for the better.

Josh met (almost) my entire family that Summer- including a graduation open house with 40 of my cousins. Talk about overwhelming!

We drove his motorcycle to the fireworks at Taste of Minnesota, and sat and sipped coffee as we watched the lights dance above our heads. You didn't think I would fall in love with someone who doesn't like coffee, did you?

I love having those memories. Now that life is more steady, more sure and settled, I love looking back and remembering those times. I'm so thankful for the way God directed our lives that Summer!
