As fate, karma, luck or whatever you want to call it, would have it, we ended up in that same driveway that fall evening. I'll spare you all the exact details and skip to the part where I end up in the hospital later that night due to being hit in the eye with an egg...yes, an egg...and getting knocked out and losing sight in my right eye for a few days. This young girl came to the emergency room with me and kept me form freaking out while the doctors removed pieces of egg shell from my eye...yes, there might have been alcohol involved in this story.
Shortly thereafter, we began dating and, on May 30, 1997, we were married. Today celebrates 15 years of marriage to an unbelieveable woman. Sadly and somehow ironically, I am celebrating by myself, in Las Vegas, due to work conferences.
|I couldn't resist...|
Somewhere around 2001 we bought our first house finally started to stay above water. We had a couple of dogs, some good friends, a canoe and life seemed to be ok. Fast forward to 2012 and I find myself celebrating 15 years with a woman who has grown into a great mom and an even better partner. I am fortunate that, over the years, with some hard work, life has been kind to us. We are still together, have a couple of dogs, some good friends, add in 2 great boys and, oh yeah, a canoe!
I could go on with stories and memories for days however, I am going to end this entry by simply saying " Thank you and I love you! "
