As of May 27, 2005, we'd been dating for 6 years 1
month and 18 days :) Mandy had just graduated from the University
of Evansville a week or two earlier, and we were celebrating her
graduation with a party at one of the chalets (a really nice cabin)
at Burdette Park.
I would estimate that 15 - 20 people were in attendance,
and as the night wore on we all retired from the picnic table and
patio into the living room area of the Chalet.
I built a fire in the fireplace, and under the guise
of just sitting there to warm up, I asked Mandy to sit with me...
fortunately a few of the guests who hadn't been at Mandy's commencement
brought gifts, which provided me with the perfect opportunity to
give her a present of my own...
