Sixteen years and three days ago...a boy came to school with a bouquet of roses and asked a girl out. This being in high school there were some people that were not happy with this. But the very young couple smiled and carried on.
A few day later...the boy kissed the girl, because a frizbee hit her in the lip and it swelled up.
Six days after that...she wrote in her journal that she was in love with that boy. Which she thought was pretty darn serious being all of 15 years old.
Just short of three years later...he proposed. She of course, said yes.
A year after that they were happily married.
Twelve years later...we are getting ready to celebrate our twelve year anniversary. There has been lots of ups and downs but just as always the still young couple smiles and carries on.
