We were both young.....

When I first saw you. <3

Derek and I met when he was 16 and I was 15. I was "heartbroken" over my last ex. (As heartbroken as a 15 year old can be). He would call me every single night just to make sure I was okay. At first I didn't think much of it, but I really liked how much he cared. I wasn't ready to be in a another relationship yet, so we continued with our talks. Even though I swore I wouldn't date again for a very very long time (again, I was 15 and dumb haha) I wished every night that he liked me. And soon I started to think about him ALL THE TIME. I was so confused.

(4th of July 2009)

After a few weeks, Derek asked me out. Through...a song. Yes. a song. A song he posted on myspace. Yes. myspace (what is that again?) Anyways, I called him later that night and he "officially" (haha) asked me out. And I said yes! I was so happy that night it was ridiculous. I was so nervous the next day at school to see my new boyfriend that I purposely avoided him all day. And then he came up behind me and tapped me on the shoulder. And I then literally screamed I was so nervous and surprised that he found me. Then the rest is history.....

Okay, well. It's not really history because now we're both 17, and turning 18 in mere months.

(Our first summer together)

Derek is my love story. I know. You all are probably rolling your eyes at me. Heck, I think I might be rolling my eyes right now too. But really, he is. He made high school complete for me. He was so much more to me than a boyfriend. He truly is my best friend. He is somebody I can be myself around completly.

Sometimes we fight, but not nearly as much as we used to, sometimes we get angry and sometimes we get dissapointed in each other. But if there's anything that I know. It's that I want to try and make this work as long as I possibly can. Luckily, I was never one of those girls to ditch their friends for their boyfriends. So I have had an equal amount of great times with Derek and my friends. 

(My Sweet 16, about 3 weeks after we first started "dating")

I understand that we're only 17, and the cards are stacked against us. I'm not saying we're going to get married, have kids and grow old together. I'm just saying, right now, in this moment. He is what makes me unbelievably happy.

(our first dance together, homecoming 2009)

I chose the image I did from Scenic Glory's post because it reminded me of a modern day image from Taylor Swift's "Love Story". The girl running to meet her lover in the field. When I liked Derek one of my friends, Maddy, said how she always thought of me and Derek when she heard "Love Story". I was so confused because I thought our love story hadn't begun yet. I guess Maddy was right.

"I love you and that's all I really know."
