4 Years Together

Derek and I spent our 4 year anniversary together here in Philadelphia. It's hard to believe we've been dating that long. It's even harder to believe that we started dating as sophomores in high school when I'm a sophomore in college now and Derek just graduated with an associates degree in graphic design. Back in high school, the biggest worry of the year was homecoming and prom and now we're starting to deal with bills and real life jobs. In high school, it was hard to imagine what life would be like afterwards and although it's harder now, I absolutely love it. 

Derek and I laid around watching "The Office" and stuffing our faces with junk food for half of his trip here but we also went out on dates. Derek went with me to the Reading Terminal market to go grocery shopping, we went to "Square Peg" for our anniversary dinner, got ice cream at Scoop DeVille, my parents came up one day and we went for brunch at South Street Diner and walked around some of the historical sites, went to a Phillies game and on our actual anniversary (the 23rd) I made Derek a dinner of barbecue chicken, mashed potatoes and corn bread (his favorite). Overall, it was a fun time and I really enjoyed Derek getting to see a glimpse of my life here in Philly. 

I've really enjoyed this school year in Philly and living in my first house with three roommates, but it's also been a long year and I'm looking forward to spending the summer months in my hometown with my family and Derek before moving into a new apartment with my best friend in August.
