Our story…sort of

Once upon a time, in the land called The Sonoran Desert a little girl name Holly was born.

A year later, a little boy in the same land was born. His name was Justin.

Justin’s parents were friends with Holly’s parents. And Holly lived on the same street as Justin’s Uncle.  However, when Justin was less then a year old his family moved  to a new land, very different and very far away.

In the year 1997 Justin came back to The Sonoran Desert to visit his sister, who had moved back a couple years prior. At this time, they “met” each other for the first time.   Apparently Justin “liked” Holly, but Holly thought of him as “her friends little brother” mel and justin 4-96 001or even worse “her little brother’s friend”

So a few years went by, and some maturing for both Holly and Justin…

Then, in March 2001 Justin decided to make the Sonoran Desert his new home. Justin and Holly quickly became friends and soon after fell in love.

There was a really cool car, that JB wanted to get in, but some punk little boy pushed him over to get back in it, so JB couldn’t. THen his mom just encouraged him. We waited for quite awhile, before giving up.

These were C.D.’s kids colored on, that were hung in the light. Made it very pretty.
