Our Wedding Anniversary - June 18th

Yes, it's that time again. Our anniversary is Sunday, June 18th. It's our 12th. But you know, that pales in light of how long we've known each other - since 1975.

We met in Keflavik, Iceland. I was 21 and she was 19. Both of us already had a Significant Other, but they were stateside - and we weren't. Needless to say, we became extremely close - we were drawn to each other. Iceland is a very, very cold place! But, while our time together was sweet, it was finite. In 1976, I had to leave Iceland and go to Guam (and thaw out) and not long after I left, she went to London. We didn't see each other again until 1982.

At that time she was in a relationship that lasted until 1993 - and then I asked her to visit me in California. From the moment I saw her, I knew we would make a life together. From that time forward we do periodically kicked ourselves for not getting together back in 1982. Oh well. Hindsight - 20/20. We need a better crystal ball.

Tomorrow we'll celebrate with the kidlets by going to a movie and out to dinner. My kind of celebration.

Happy Anniversary. Your story is so very sweet...I'm kind of tearing up here, really. Bless you both and your girls.

And no, don't have the Prius yet...grrrr. It's a long story. I'll give it another month before moving on to another kind of car.
