19 Years it is!

Tim and I have been married for 19 years today, wow! Time sure does fly :)

We've actually been together for a lot longer than that though. We met in gym class when we were 15. That's the first we talked anyway, I remember him from 8th grade Democracy class, he doesn't remember me though :P

We became friends then but weren't really that interested in each other. I thought Brian Stone was cute and he had nice legs. He was in between Tim and me, in our squads (group thingies). Tim had made a decision that he wouldn't date anyone until he turned 16 and could drive. So we knew each other but were just friends. We'd talk, but not a whole lot, I'm not
much of a flirter and I wasn't much of a talker to boys.

So how did we get together? My friend Mindy was quite, let's say assertive :) I think she'd talk to Tim or have someone talk to Tim and say "you should ask Kelli Storsved out" and she'd say to me "I think you guys would make a great couple". I even remember laying by her at her house for a sleepover at that same time and get this.. I say "I think Tim and I would have really cute kids!" And she replies "Yes!" I'm crazy aren't I? Not even dating the guy but having his kids???

Well, needless to say, we were right, I think my kids are pretty ding-dang cute.

So I'm thankful to Mindy and to Tim for asking me out. He made the move :) although he wasn't the one to make the move for our first kiss!

This isn't our first, it's at our groom's dinner. Aren't we cute?


Happy Anniversary to my honey, I'm so glad you're in my life.
