Lucky Thirteen

Thirteen years ago today I made one of the best decisions of my whole life and married the most wonderful guy. Hopefully my husband feels the same way! Looking back, our dating days are some of the sweetest memories I have. Full of enough cheesyness for all of the worlds extra cheese pizza’s, but that is one of the reasons it is so fun to look back on.

To demonstrate the corniness of it all I have to do is name a few of our songs. Yes there is more than one.

Thank You, By Dido

I Want to Love You, by Bob Marley

and are you ready for the cheesiest? Groovy Kind of Love!! The Phil Collins version of course.

I remember him playing our songs on his guitar while I would melt into a puddle. While we were dating we both attended the same community college. He would walk me to one of my classes that was actually across a small bridge where we we would say goodbye’s for a very long time, as if we would not see each other for a year when the reality was we were together again a few hours later. I am sure we annoyed everyone who passed us on that little bridge.

Finals that semester was a nightmare especially my chemistry exam where I completely failed it because my brain could not turn off the utter explosion of feelings I had for that cute guy of mine with dark wavy hair and an old run down shelby charger.

Oh what a ride it has been! From having four beautiful daughters to moving eight times. One move halfway across the country and then back ten months later. While our life now consists of calming down our four dramatic girls, paying bills and working our buts off to make it all work, I would not change a thing.

Instead of being serenaded and staring into each others eyes, there is laughter over the hilarity of our crazy life and many late nights eating junk food after the kids are asleep and playing video games with me always winning (That may be an exaggeration)  below is proof I at least won once.

He is my best friend and partner in crime and as cliche as that may be, It is completely the truth!
