Celebrating

I didn't have much time to blog today. Hubby and I went out to eat and to the movies and spent lots of time together. We were celebrating the day we officially started dating so many years ago. I call it our dating anniversary and he says its not really an anniversary, lol. We have been celebrating this day every year for as long as we have been together, and will continue to. He laughs every time I say, "officially started dating." Lol.

Here is the story behind, "Officially Dating." Its quite a short story, and not really a story, but here it is, lol. We saw each other quite often for about five or so months before we officially started dating. I would stop by his place of employment and he'd take his break and spend it with me. He would come by my school after classes and hang out with me. We would meet somewhere and spend some time together. But he had never asked me out. One day, when I stopped by his work I overheard him tell some of his buddies his girlfriend was here. He walked over to the car and I asked him why he said his girlfriend was there. He didn't answer, he just smiled. I said, "I'm not your girlfriend, you've never asked me out." A couple weeks past and we went out to do some Christmas shopping. After we were through, it was late and the stores were closing. Out on the side walk, he stopped me, took my hands, looked at me with such a serious face, and asked me to go with him. I smiled at him and said Yes! I've been waiting forever! Lol. And that was December 6, so many wonderful years ago!

We started out young too, I was 14 and he was 19! We lived next to each other our whole lives, I always loved him, when I nine years old I started praying that he'd be the man I married. Ah, Sweet Childhood Memories....
