Today is my third wedding anniversary. I thought maybe I'd give you a little background on how we got to be 3 years married and almost 10 years together. Joe and I have known each other since we were about 12. I was in concert band in the brass section with his twin brother Billy. I played a mean trombone and mean meaning horrible. I quit before freshman year but that's where it all really began now that I look back at it. I knew who Joe was because I was friends with his twin brother.
We became friends and not just acquaintances during our freshman year. We always seemed to have at least one class together every semester. Our graduating class was 711 students so it's kind of against the odds to have that many classes with the same person all four years of school unless you plan it.
During our senior year we found ourselves in 2 out of 4 classes of our fall semester together. During this time we became closer than we ever had been. We were both falling out of other relationships and kind of bounced our sorrows off each. Then it happened- every girl's dream- he asked me to prom on aol instant messenger. We started seriously dating by the end of our senior year and never looked back.
We have had our ups and down like everyone but we hang in there and always bounce back even stronger. I'm so blessed to have such a strong man and wonderful father by my side day in and day out. Happy Anniversary babe.
