For my large digital story, I decided to make a story map. I used the StoryMapJS platform to create this story. In 10 days from now, my fiancee and I will be getting married. Kelly is my best friend and the love of my life.
There is a lot to be said about the intersection of love and creativity. When thinking of a story to tell using the story map technology, I thought it would be fun to think about our story. We met when we were 19 year old undergraduate students at the University of Connecticut, our story spans over 10 years. Even though we have spent most of our lives (both individually and together) in Connecticut, its fun to look at where each stop along the way has taken us.
Telling the story was easy for us, we've told it many times and our closest friends lived through it with us. This was the first time we've really documented our story other than what we post on social media. Voice recording is not something either of us is super comfortable with, neither of us like to be the center of attention. Digging through photos and talking about our journey together is something that was easy for us, but recording it pushed us out of our comfort zone. We had a ton of fun doing this!
