Feels like only yesterday...


It's our 19th wedding anniversay today. OMG! That's a hell of a long time to be together, yet it feels like it was only yesterday. It was love at first sight, he proposed after dating for 2 weeks and we were married 4 months later. Things happened pretty fast. And no! I wasn't pregnant, although everybody else thought I was. You could tell by the look on their faces when I handed out the invitations. I even joked about it at the time, but the joke was on me as I soon found out.

I was an 80's bride. You know what that means, don't you? That nobody will be getting a peek at my wedding album. Too embarrassed to show off the hairdo and shoulder pads. I was just a 20-year-old kid going up that aisle, given away by my daddy who cried thoughout the whole cerimony. The only other time time I ever saw him crying was 12 years later when the little guy was born, his only grandchild. Little did I know that day, back in 1989, that all the dreams I carried in my heart as I recited my wedding vows would take a hell of a long time to come true, with heartache and a lot of pain along the way. But what doesn't kill you, just makes you stronger, and that certainly was the case here.

We're not big on celebrations here at home. Just like our wedding, we like to keep things very low key. But our little guy was so excited and insisted on singing for us. So, he decided to adapt "Happy Birthday" to "Happy anniversary" (that was a mouthfull), then finished off with an awesome "We Will Rock You" (Rolling Stones eat your hearts out) and it really rocked here at our place . Just the three of us having a grand time, before my husband had to dash off to classes.

So, a toast to my partner in crime! And to the little guy, the perfect accomplice.
