You could say that we are one, or you could say that we are nine.
The fact is, we could be either depending on how you look at it.
I like to think we are both :)
Recently, Ju and I technically turned, 9. That is, we've been together for 9 years. That's almost a decade!! That's right, for those that know how to do their math well (I was abysmal at it in high school and was almost failing!! So my parents carted me off to the only tuition I ever did, before I did serious numerical damage before I entered my senior high years!! I ended up coming 2nd in my grade :p ) it means we met at the oh-so-cultivated and sophisticated age of 17. This was our first ever photo of each other (I thought LONG and HARD before I decided I should post it up because we look so awfully AWFUL!! I swear, I do not look anything like that now, that there is no inch of treelikeness about my hair anymore, and that I wear less scariness in my shades of lipstick. PROMISE):
Here is another VERY flattering photo of us from the weekend. I look like a dead statue :p But I promise I am nothing like that in real life (except if I haven't slept :p ). Plus I hate showing my teeth. I have one very crooked snag of ivory (although people say they can't notice - maybe they're being nice!!) which makes me feel a little less pretty on some days. But I am thankful that my teeth weren't what they used to be when I was 14. I looked like dracula then. Thank God for braces.
And here is our attempt at something creative (attempt is the key word because obviously we so succeeded :p) with our point and shoot camera:
Happy 1 year Ju! I know I didn't get you a card (I loved yours! Please don't stop buying me cards!!), but I hope a blog post and my present makes up a little :) Here's to many many more years of love and craziness ahead :) 143.
Okay, I am bummed like ANYTHING that I couldn't go to Jason Mraz last night, and I have just come out of a crazy travel period so I am tackling emails, and my godzilla-sized to do list today!!
So, crazy office woman mode is switching on...NOW!!
