Landon and I dated for two years while we were both at Clemson (our freshman and sophomore years), then broke up and barely spoke for the next three. After seeing each other for the first time in a year at Landon's graduation, we finally realized we were made for each other. Funny how things come full circle if you give them enough of a chance!
Anyway, there was this one picture that we both loved when we were dating previously, and we each had a copy. It was taken at a football game that Clemson won (yay!), but it was also a memento of one of the most fun weekends we'd ever had together. Mine went to picture heaven (not by my own hands, but that's a completely different story), and I always longed for it after it said farewell. Perhaps this should have been my first clue that I wanted to be with Landon. :) I figured Landon didn't have a copy, and even I wasn't crazy enough to call him at that point in our relationship to ask him to look for it.
After we got back together again, we discussed THAT picture at length, and Landon told me that he thought he'd thrown it away with a lot of other Natalie stuff years before. We were very disheartened by this discussion and mourned for this one, super amazing picture. THEN! We went up to visit Landon's parents one weekend, and Landon's mom made him clean out his old room. Guess what we found?
At long last.

It's a bit worn, and it has some rust on it, but we're okay with it. After all, we're not perfect either. :)
And of course, it's been scanned onto my computer and backed up in about twelve places. It will roam no more!
