Glad I Grabbed That Brownish Area By Its Points

Fifteen years ago today, my dream life began.

It was a Christmas party in the suburbs. Both of us invited by total fluke.

He was a gangly young guy with a patchy beard, a grass green sweater and an ear-to-ear smile.

I was on a first date. But not with him.

I arrived at the party just as he was preparing to leave it.
But he stayed.
We talked.
And he left with my girlfriend’s email address.

Little did I know he’d make — and save — my life.

Lucky, lucky me.

    December 22, 1995 changed my life. Thank you for being at the party. Thank you for giving a young whipper snapper a chance. I love you!

    Fondly remembering the day you pointed out the location (near Ceylonta Restaurant) where you met Mark first. You are truly made for each other.

    I met my hubby at a Christmas party. It must be that time of year that makes us gals fall for those sweet guys. Congrats! If only all married couples appreciated each other as much as you two do, we all would be so much happier. ;) nNext blog idea…how to have a happy marriage…
