I don't know how to pick a favorite memory! I have so many good ones. Unfortunately, I do not have a lot of pictures on my computer from my childhood and I wouldn't even know where to begin looking for them to scan in. However, I can choose one significant memory that affected my future the most.
During our first summer together, Ryan and I went to Six Flags and had such a fun day. There's a story behind a lot of this, but I accidentally said "I love you," but he didn't hear it...but I was worried the rest of the day because I was sure I freaked him out and he was going to dump me. But it also freaked me out that I said it, because I said it more like I say it to a friend, but the more I thought about it, I realized I really did love him already. On the way out of the park, we made wishes in the big fountain, mine was that he would love me the way I loved him or something like that. We promised we wouldn't tell each other our wishes until they came true. Well, my came true soon after! However, Ryan never shared his with me...until many years down the road.
When he proposed, he explained how we had made wishes in the fountain that day at Six Flags and he was hoping I could make his wish come true! Obviously, I said yes and we have continued to make great memories since...but I think this day will go down in our books as the day we realized we were meant for each other, and that's a pretty awesome memory if you ask me!
