A Special Retro Friday
I'm guessing David is about three or four in this picture. Look how adorable he looks! When I put this up, I noticed that you can see a scar on his forehead. He has told me so many funny stories about how many times he fell and cut his forehead open when he was a little boy, and after a while his parent's just put tape on it to help the wound heal! When we were first dating in college, he was taking a soccer class, and he cut his head open with a ball pass that he did! I guess somethings never change.
We met my freshman year of college, so I guess you would say we are college sweethearts. I did tell our story a while back, so I don't want to do the whole story again, but it was meant to be in so many ways, that it is just too hard to write it all down. So, why am I doing this post with both of us you ask? Well... it is our 29th wedding anniversary this coming Monday! We will be celebrating at Chez Panisse for dinner. I can't wait, since they are serving Cassoulet that day, which is one of my favorite dishes.
Like everyone says, time sure does fly, but when I look at this photo, it now seems like it was another lifetime ago, and I look like a kid......well, I guess I was at only 20 years old.
I wouldn't have done it any other way though, and have never regretted getting married at a young age. Perhaps it isn't for everyone, but for me it worked. Some people just don't know what they want at an early age, and that is OK, but I think if you know, and in your heart things are good, most likely you found "The One." I know I did!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY honey, I love you!!!
