20 Years Ago Today....


two very different people tied the knot. The bride was young, inexperienced, a baby really. The groom was basically a cradle robber. Ok, not really.This is just the way I like to tell the story! Here's what really happened:
1. Boy meets Girl in friend's apartment building, while Girl is carrying laundry basket down to the basement to do laundry. Girl thinks Boy is sexy-looking, with his Coke bottle glass lenses. Boy thinks Girl is the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen, in real life, and Girl agrees.
2. Boy and Girl fall madly in love shortly thereafter, over many dates to various rock clubs.
3. Boy decides he must get Girl off the market, and proposes.
4. Girl says "Ok".
5. Boy and Girl get married, and add a beautiful baby girl to their little family.....

and since then, they have been living happily ever after!
Happy Anniversary Sweetie! I'd do it all over again in a second!

Carol, happy anniversary!! What a blessing to love your guy!! Mock strawberry jelly is only a secret because if I turn my back...she's done it all and nothing is written down anywhere...a lot of knowledge will go to Heaven with her one day. I know we boiled the figs with sugar for a while and she adds the jello in there somewhere but I can't keep up with her. It's really about making figs look and taste like it's strawberry...gotta use up those incredible figs. xox! DeniseMarie

Happy anniversary, Carol! ♥

We just celebrated our 29th! Jeepers! I was 18 and my Bobby was 27 when we married! He always gets teased about robbing the cradle or worse yet, being a playground stalker!!! Ha! I felt like an old maid though because I had been waiting for the love of my life since 1rst grade! ☺
