Happy Anniversary!

Nine years ago today, I walked down the aisle and married my soul mate.  Has it really been that long?


Our engagement photo!

Randy and I met in 6th grade when he transferred to my school.  He claims that he saw me in the hallway and told me that he liked my pencil case, to which I relplied something like, “Leave me alone!”  I have no recollection of that encounter and will deny it till the day I die! LOL!

We started “dating” in 8th grade which went horribly wrong.  It ended with prank phone calls and pizzas being ordered to each other’s homes.  Obvioulsy, we were not ready to date ANYONE. 

We went to different high schools and despised each other freshman year.  Seriously.  I could not stand him.  Somehow (I guess it was fate), we swallowed our pride and slowly became friends.  I decided to invite him to my Junior Prom and the rest is history (I guess my big 90’s bangs were enough to woo him! LOL!). 

We dated for a total of 9 years while we finished high school, college and Grad school.  Finally, on April 28, 2000 we were married!  He is my best friend, my partner in crime, my confidant and soul mate. 

Love you, Ran!!!!
