It's been twenty one years

Well today, (Dec. 28th) twenty one years ago was the day of Scott's and my first date. We were both 17 years old. We went out for dinner and a movie. The movie we saw was Princess Bride. Most every year on Dec. 28th we've re-watched that movie. Our kids even know that this is our "date movie". After lunch today we all sat down and watched this as a family. Our family doesn't have many traditions but this is one that we make sure to carry on with. It's fun to think back all those years ago. We were officially engaged on Dec 28th the following year. I am so grateful to have found such a young boy with so much potential. Who knew how wonderful he would have turned out to be? I didn't realize his potential at such a naive age. This is one of the biggest blessings that I recognize came from my Heavenly Father. Looking back... we were both so young but over the months knew what we wanted. I got more than I bargained for. It has been better than I had ever dreamed possible. I told Scott that I Loved him so much that I would even live with him in a cardboard box if that was all we could afford. I just wanted to be married to him. Scott has reminded me of this "Cardboard" statement when I have complained about situations in past years. I am so proud of him and all of his accomplishments. I am grateful to his parents for teaching him values and the importance of honesty. I look forward to celebrating our 20th year of marriage on July 28th of this New Year. I know...28th this , 28th that. We wanted to be consistent! Happy Anniversary Hhhsconey! I love you!
