Stories

The memories, milestones, and little moments in between

I still remember.

I still remember.

From your future husband

I still remember the first day we met at the university library. You were at the opposite end of the study lounge and I couldn’t take my eyes off you. I remember you stayed for quite some time, and then you left. 

I quickly figured out we were in the same Intro to Political Science class and the next class I was determined to show up early find out where you sat and “accidentally” sit next to you. 

It took a few classes and a lot of effort, but I finally did it. The professor started class and the topic escapes me, but I’ll never forget the moment when you looked over and said, “I’m sorry – do you have an extra pencil.” 

After that, we attended the same study groups, went to the games together, and before we knew it, we were inseparable. From that day forward, I knew I wanted to marry you. I was right back then, and I can confirm it still. You make me the happiest man on Earth. 

I’m thankful to Colorado State for bringing us together. I owe them the world for giving me my favorite person on Earth. 

Love you more. 

xo, V.

My favorite Sister-n-Law

My favorite Sister-n-Law

From Katie

Ellie! 

Words cannot describe how lucky I am to not only have a wonderful sister-n-law, but also a hardcore Greys Anatomy fanatic. I remember the first time me, you, Vincent and Andre hung out. I believe it was bowling and then painting downtown. We quickly realized we both were missnig our Thursday night shows, and we've been besties ever since. 

What I love about you the most is your dedication and committment to your work. You opened up a safe house for homeless and disadvantaged youth WHILE finishing school with honors - what can't you do? Every time I visit, the young kids tell me stries about your generosuty, dedication and patience. You're truly shaping young minds. I know they love you, and I lofe you, too! 

I wish you and my brother a happy and healthy marriage. I cant wait for couples cruises and more #TGIT! Enjoy the calm and remember to laugh about the tough stuff. 

Cheers and congrats! 

Love, Katie 

Best of Luck! Cheers!

Best of Luck! Cheers!

You're the best vacay partner.
