I lived the first 27 years of my life in Indiana, and I actually really love it there. My boyfriend (Kelly) and I went back for his sister's high school graduation and regressed into full Hoosiers. Photographic evidence below.
  1. A photo of my Kel on a faux magazine cover about basketball. This was set up in our room at his parent's house. Also, he was 4"9 until he was 16.

  2. Kel and I hid out in his parent's basement at night, drank his dad's beers, listened to Jim Croce records, played with his old electric guitar, and made out.

  3. We went through his old books and found one to read out loud to each other. That was nice.

  6. This cat was regularly in my bed (in my spot!) whenever I came back into the room during the day. When I asked her to leave, she gave me the cat-finger.

  9. Despite neither of us having children, by being in the suburbs, Kel morphed into a total dad.
