Christina and Phil

Mi Torta de Dulce

Joking around, Phil used Google Translate to look up Christina's nickname "Sweetie Pie" in Spanish. The result was a poor translation, and so now he lovingly calls her "Torta de Dulce" (Cake that is sweet) or "Dulce Pan" (Sweet bread).

                                                                                                                                 

It was our official first day as boyfriend and girlfriend. 

It was our official first day as boyfriend and girlfriend. 

The first time I saw Phil was when he worked at the Chico State computer lab. He was so cute! He never noticed me then. The first time we spoke was when we were having dinner at a Chinese Restaurant for a Chevron event. Then we got to know each other a little bit more the summer of 2007 when we were both interns at Chevron. 

I would always say silly things and one day we were dancing Salsa and I "accidentally" lost my balance and we hugged and the rest is history. I knew he was the one for me. I knew it by the way he looked into my eyes and there was this sweetness in his look, and till this day I still notice those eyes that tell me everything. I'm thankful our paths crossed and that he loved me in return. After having a two year long distance relationship we stayed together and recently celebrated our five year anniversary. You know you have a keeper when he misses you, loves you, and would do anything for you. 

 

I believe that memories do last a lifetime and that's why  I'm glad it's you who I'm sharing my life with. Just looking back at the past five years, I see adventure, trust,  the love you have not only for me, but for my family,  and  that even when days get rough, you still manage to make me smile.
