Mike and KB: Round One!

So as most of you know, Mike and I dated about 4 years ago for the first time. He was 17 and I was 18 (cougar! haha). He was a senior in high school and I was about to start my freshman year of college. We only dated for a few months but we were absolutely inseparable the entire time... a far cry from now? Not really. We went our separate ways in November of 2006 and we both dated someone else for 3 years. I'm so glad our paths converged once more and we're currently walking in the same direction.

A big thank you goes to the anonymous person on my FormSpring who brought these photos to my attention. Upon cleaning out my computer yesterday, I stumbled across a couple more. Huzzah!

Don't judge me... That was the tail end of the "scene" phase for me and I may or may not have had crappy blonde extensions. Oof!

(HOLY lack-of-eyebrows here! Man alive! And I've def got the Tammy Faye eyelashes going on! Oh well, at least I can look back on it and laugh!)

So there you have it. Circa 2006 in all of it's glory. I found several photos of me from high school and I have some from when I was a witttttle kid. I'll post them as soon as I can get them scanned in. :) They're not pretty. So don't hate.

Now my question to all of you...

How long have you been with your significant other? Do you have any photos from way-back-when? If so, post links to them in the comments or make your own post and link me over! I wanna see!

Off to sleep!



  1. You two are so adorable! hehe. Have a great day :)

  2. Awww, so cute! Wow, Kaelah, you look really different from how you do now in the first picture..but still so pretty :)

    It's amazing how you both crossed paths again. He seems like an amazing match for you.

  3. i liked reading this post. cute pictures!

    i will have been with my boyfriend for 5 years, come this august. here is a picture from when we first started dating. i was a junior and he was a senior. http://tinyurl.com/28d2np7


  4. You give hope to us, in some fairytale-esk way that we'll all eventually find our soul mate. Whither it be someone new or someone from our past. My hats off to you two for inspiring the masses that love can conquer all.

    As for my significant other i just now noticed that i have never taken a single picture with any of them, i should start it'd be nice to remember what we were, when we were indeed involved. :)

    Take Care

  5. I love hearing about couples who "give it another go." My SO and I first dated for 9 months in high school. I was a senior, he a junior. We too were pretty inseparable. He was my first love. Then, I up and moved across the country and went to college. We fell apart, and for five years, we dated other people, occasionally talked, and broke each other's hearts when the timing to try again just wasn't right.

    3 years ago, I'd moved to Texas and he was about to finish college. Neither of us was dating anyone else. "I'm moving in," he said. "OK!" I said.

    We're getting married in October.

    Sometimes it really does all work out in the end.


  6. I've been with my SO for over 4 years, and we're moving out together in July.

  7. John and I have been together 4 and a half years now. This is our first picture together, about 1.5 years into our relationship:

    We haven't changed much in 3 years. Honestly this could have been taken yesterday haha.

  8. My husband and I started dating when we were in high school. I was a year older than him and gradated in 2004. We've been married for almost 4 years and he used to have long hair until he went in the Marines. We look a lot different now than we used to.

  9. My boyfriend and I have been together 5 years... and holy crap old pictures are crazy. I'm a year, one month, and 21 days (I think) older than him. And wow, old pictures are crazy. I'm about 65 pounds heavier in old pics of us... so here's my photobucket- I actually just stumbled upon it again the other day.


    He's actually the only person from HS I've seen in 3 years

    Pic from my 21st birthday (12/25/2009)

  10. too funnt, Chris and I have the same sort of thing going on! Here's our story:


    I'll have to try to find pictures of us, I know we have some somewhere!!


  11. Awwwwwwww :)

    Me and my boyfriend dated in high school, too. ... He was in 10th grade and I was in 11th ... we dated for a few months then I moved away ... then we both joined the Air Force for 4 years ... then we both moved back to Texas and started dating again after 7 years apart :) ... We've been together for 1 and 1/2 years again now :)

  12. That's so sweet :)
    I have a love/hate relationship with looking at the way I used to dress. haha. I went through some really stupid phases, and I just can not believe it. I would dress like it was always Halloween, and not in a good way :S

    I've been with my husband for over 7 years. We started dating when I was 12 (I'm 20 now) and we've always been inseperable. I know a lot of people who assume that because we are young, it won't last. And a lot of others think I'm just really lucky. But like any relationship, it takes work. I don't regret anything that I've done (for example, I've been with him all through Jr. High AND High School, so he was my only serious boyfriend) because I've never desired to be with anyone else. And we are always careful not to deny one another new opportunities. I truly believe we can make it together. :)

  13. aww cute! how cool that you reunited! my boyfriend and i had a long distance relationship for a while that started out as friends. it's hard to say how long we've been together but in september he will have been living with me for 2 yrs. but we met over 3 yrs ago. i did a post a while ago with the story and some pics...but they don't date back as far as your pics! http://inmyownlittleuniverse.blogspot.com/2010/02/how-we-met.html

  14. Haha this is so cute....and awesome, because I'm 19 and my boyfriend turns 18 in a few months so I'm a total coug too ;)
