|Yes this is the original note he gave me almost 17 years ago|
Unfortunately I still had another hour before I could go home. As soon as I was done, I rushed home and called him. I never thought of it but the poor guy was just waiting by the phone worrying about how his note went over and I in my teenage naiveness (there I go again with made up words) just nonchalantly called him up. Anyway we talked for a very long time and I was so shy about it, that I didn't bring up this very important question------------------>>>
until he finally couldn't take it any longer and asked me again. Like I said... Poor guy.. had no idea what he was getting into. And so began a journey full of ups and downs, love, loss, renewal and friendship. I love that man with all my heart and look forward to another 50 years with him if I'm so blessed to live that long.
Another event that happened on this day is the birth of our baby girl 3 years ago on our 10th anniversary. I kept telling her not to be born on this day but she didn't listen.
Words to describe her? Beautiful, bossy, strong willed, loving, sweet, princess, independent and silly. As she grows her personality changes. She's the baby of the family and she lives up to that role well. She's my little sweet pea and one of the loves of my life. I couldn't imagine life without her so I guess I'll forgive her for being born on our anniversary.
And to leave you today..
