Seven years ago today.
On March 13, 2008, Ilhan and I became “official.” We were both just teenagers (I was barely 18), not really sure where the relationship was going to go considering that I was going off to college in a few months. All we were certain of was that we wanted to be with each other at that moment, whether it would be for just for a few months or years or anything. And here we are seven years later. I’m pretty sure I shared at least 50% of these pictures for our anniversary last year, but I don’t care. I just love looking at these and remembering those times. The above picture at the Golden Gate Bridge back in 2011 is forever and ever my favorite picture of us.

1-3, 2008 // 4, 2009 // 5, 2010 // 6, 2011
This year, we’re celebrating by going to our first weekend-long music festival together! So Saturday and Sunday we’ll be at Crssd Fest in San Diego at a park right by the bay listening to good music for a total of 21 hours lol I think we might be getting too old for this (evidenced by the fact that we’ve been giving each other pep talks all week because we get tired just thinking about dancing for eleven hours straight…two days in a row). We’re most excited to see Odesza our most favorite group ever heheheh I’m legitimately disappointed that they’re not going to be on until Sunday because I get excited butterflies thinking about seeing them again.

Anyway :] Enjoy this before/after picture of us comparing the first picture we ever took together to the most recent picture we’ve taken…bebes grew up.
