15 years since our first date…we’re getting old!


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!
