7 Year Itch

Yeah, right.

I love February. It is by far my favorite month.

No snow, ice, or windy chill can bring this chica down.

Everything good happens in February. For starters, Jerry and I started dating in February.

Let’s travel back in time…

Awr, shucks. Look at those young kids! This is Jerry and I on our 1 year anniversary, February 7th, 2004.

We celebrated with a relaxing evening at my Mom’s house in the hot tub. (And yes, that is how I say, the hot tub. Can’t really help it anymore).

So what have we been up to the past 7 years?

Year 1

  • Miss Em drives up (4 hours) almost every weekend to see Mr. J (who was without wheels).
  • Miss Em begins her 1 year stint at college #2.
  • JB and EM spend most of the summer in Texas with Miss Em’s Dad, Johnny Mac.
  • EM’s sister, Cate, ties the knot.


  • Miss Em drives up (4 hours) almost every weekend to see Mr. J (who was still basically without wheels).
  • Emily ties up year 1 at college #2.
  • Jerry graduates from the college where we first met. Buys a sports car.
  • JB gets a job in Rochester, NY, asked EM to move, too.
  • She does.
  • We move into our first and only apartment in downtown Rochester.


  • Miss Em scouts (read: lazily looks at) area colleges trying to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up.
  • JB brings home the bacon.
  • EM totals vehicle and buys a sensible four door.
  • Miss Em convinces Mr. J to adopt Eddie (he was easily convinced).
  • Mr. J asks Miss Em, “Wedding? Or house?”
  • Eddie gets a fenced in yard…that we own.

Year 4

  • Ah, the joys of homeownership! Painting and tearing up carpet consumes JB and EM.
  • Jer-Bear joins a broomball league.
  • JB’s brother, John and EM’s sister, Sarah, get hitched (Fun Fact: neither couple has been together as long as the McB’s)!
  • Miss Em goes back to school at college #3.

Year 5

  • Miss Em makes it through more than 1 year at a college!
  • More home renovations to count.
  • Traveling to see family all over the country.
  • EM lands her first gig on a movie set!
  • JB and EM start traveling “back home” together on holidays.

Year 6

So…I guess that sums it up! All the major happenings of our 6 year relationship. I may have left some things out but can you blame me? 6 years is a long time to try to remember all the things that happened.

This weekend (Sunday, February 7th, to be exact) is the 7 year anniversary of Miss Em and Mr. J.


PP Have any questions? Why aren’t we married yet? How does he put up with me? (That’s a good one I’m not sure I know the answer to!) I hope you’re just as lucky in love as I am! (But let’s be real, those dimples and baby blues are all mine and you really can’t beat that). :)
