This weekend is our 18th wedding anniversary. And in November we will have been together as a couple for 22 years!!!! That is for more than half my life!!!!
We met my junior year in college. We were both in student government. He had a girlfriend at the time. A friend of mine did not know he had a girlfriend and kept trying to put us together in situations. How embarassing!!!! He broke up with the girlfriend. We started dating. And we’ve been together since. That’s the short version. 🙂
We’ve had some ups and downs. There have been times when I could have strangled him and/or traded him in on a newer model. I know he has felt the same at times. But, eventually those times pass. He is a really good guy. He has an amazing work ethic. And he puts it to use to make sure that we have what we need and more. Plus allowing me to work part-time so that I can be home with the kids every afternoon and every school break. He is a devoted son. He is an outstanding father. He is waaaay more patient and calm then I am. He is tolerant and reserves judgement. He has a great since of humor, although he can be really dorky sometimes. He’s pretty great—and don’t even get me started on his wife!!!! 🙂
Love ya Mr. G!!! Happy Anniversary!!
