Memory Thursday...

January 9th marked 5 years since Iggy and I met for the first time..(in person, that is)... so, since it happened this week, I will dedicate today to those memories..
As many of you know (and many of you don't), Iggy and I met through a dating website (http://www.americansingles.com/) on December 2004. He happened to be "bored" vacationing in Venezuela and I happened to be "crazy" at home, so we both signed on to meet strangers for similar reasons, if you want to call them "reasons"..
So we started chatting at the end of '04 and he came back from his vacation on Jan. 9th, 2005..
As odd as it sounds, I picked him up from the airport that day (by myself!) and we have been inseparable ever since... I know the story sounds crazy but I would do it again a hundred times because I know that meant meeting the love of my life...
So, here we are, 5 years later and as happy as every (if not happier)...always loving this story...
Today's theme will be Iggy and Adri: our early days
I will start with this picture, which is the picture I posted on my profile, the one that "caught" Iggy's eye.. I guess red looks good on me! ha! ;)

This is the picture Iggy had on his profile..Sorry about the size, but that's what it saved like back then, when I "stole" it to show to my friends and family! ;)

Then, this is a picture taken in April '05 at a friend's wedding.. It was the first major social event we attended together...

This is a picture taken in February '05, during a road trip to Naples, FL. That was the first time I met my mother in law...


...and this right here is our first picture together.. It was taken on Jan. 18th, 2005, just 8 days after meeting in person for the first time... Please notice the closenes...too cute! I love this picture!
