Nineteen Years Ago

On October 24, 1987 - I met a man that would change my life forever. On October 24, 1992 - I married him. Nineteen years. I guess that means I have now been in love with Dave for half of my life.

We met on my very first weekend in college through a high school friend who was dating his roommate. I didn't see him again for ten months. My too nice (his words) shy guy was not easy to get, but get him I did. We have hit some rough patches along the way, but our love has survived them all.

He is my best friend and the love of my life. The father of my child and the keeper of my heart. He is witty, funny and sexy.

If he would just hurry home from work, we can eat the apple pie I made and do a little celebrating!
