Our 14th Wedding Anniversary


Today my hubby and I celebrate our 14th wedding anniversary. I got married at the age of only 19. We even went to high school together. I didn't date him until he graduated though so we weren't really high school sweethearts. He dated a friend of mine! As soon as I knew he was available I asked him to a dance. We went to a Valentine's Day dance in February of 1993. After that we didn't see each other too much and I began dating someone else. That relationship ended within a few months and in December of 1993 my now hubby called and asked if I'd go with him to a work Christmas party. Of course I said yes. I remember it like it was yesterday. Our date was December 18th. We have been inseparable since.

He asked me to marry him the day before Mother's Day in May of 1995. He drove up this long winding road on a very big hill, parked the car and claimed he needed to use the restroom. We were in a park and it was raining. I began to settle in to wait for him to finish what he needed to do (haha) and then he opened my car door. He asked me to turn down the radio. The wipers were making a squeaking noise so he asked me to turn those off too. I did. I was confused by what he was doing and why he was not going to the bathroom! Then he got down on one knee on the soaking wet pavement. He pulled out a ring case and I knew. I cried. I loved this man more than anything and I knew I never wanted to lose him. I said yes. We were married on September 23rd 1995.

My love has changed, grown and been strengthened over the years. We have had our trials as all couples do but I feel they have only strengthened us in the long run. I know he is my soul mate.

Happy Anniversary to my hubby.

What a sweet love story. If I told you how my husband proposed you would laugh to death. He is a prankster.
