16 years and counting

January 25, 1990 I said good night to Trisha after our first "date". It wasn't much of a date as we actually drove around with a mutual friend, doing basically nothing. We stood for at least two hours in the stairwell of Reid Hall on the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, before I finally worked up the nerve to kiss her and go back to my dorm room. I'm glad I finally got the nerve up to do it. Now, I find myself 16 years later, married to her for fourteen and a half years, four children, four dogs, three cats and one amazing life. That night standing in the stairwell I had no idea of what was ahead, nor could I imagine how wonderful life would be.

Our life together has taken us through hard times and times that are simply beautiful. We've shared tears and laughter. We've grown to love one another more each day.

I guess I truly had no idea what that one kiss would start.

(and I'm proud to say, Trisha didn't have to remind me today's importance)
