Ah, the night of the Boogie House party Clark and I ended up talking in the driveway for a couple of hours. In fact, I believe Clark was tempted to hold my hand. And it cemented in my mind that I really liked him as more than a friend.

That is an awesome list! It's always interesting to see how one thing leads to another. Happy Anniversary! I can't believe it was that long ago... and Doug and I JUST got married hahaha!!

What do you think you'd say if somebody told you Freshman year that you'd end up with Clark and life would be so fabulous with little Julia!

I think everyone was surprised that the two of you were dating the same way people were surprised Jen and I were dating. Gotta love it though. I remember telling people, and they'd be like "No way!" I love shock value.
