13 years ago today marks one of the first times in my life that I did something right…I asked a girl to go out with me. She was a young and beautiful Sophomore, I was a young and goofy Senior. But she said “yes”.
I took her to a movie, How To Make An American Quilt and she loved it. After the movie, we had a late dinner and laughed the whole time. I was probably trying a little too hard, but she humored me.
It took me five years to ask her to marry me, again she said “yes”. Two years later she gave me the most beautiful little girl in the world, followed by two wonderful sons.
We’ve been married for seven years, eight next May, and I can’t remember one good story from my life that doesn’t have her in it.I look forward to the years to come and all the stories that we have yet to write together.
