15 years ago my husband and I went on our first date. It was Friday the 13th and we had just finished a football game (we were both in marching band). I had finally convinced my mom to let me go on a date and be able to ride in the car with Michael! We went to Applebee’s with a group of friends. I still remember the excitement of getting to go on a date! Oh, to be young again! Right before we got to Applebee’s he officially “asked me out” (that’s what we called it back then)! I kept all his notes and cards from back then and was just now looking at them. I found a typed-up list of questions to ask him while we talked on the phone because I could never think of anything to say (and he didn’t say much either)! I was such a nerd! Most of the time we just sat on the phone in silence because neither of us knew what to say. 🙂 That has definitely changed (at least on his part)!
He knew from the first time he saw me that I was the one. I wish it would’ve been that easy for me too 🙂 We’ve certainly had our ups and downs, but I think we keep coming out of the bad times stronger than we were before. I know I’ve driven him crazy at times through the years, as he has me, but I wouldn’t change a thing. He’s one awesome man, husband, and father. I love you, Babe!
