We met in August of 1995
when I was teaching a summer art program
that his son was attending.
He was the first one there and the last to leave.
It took us about an hour and a half to finally
leave that Friday when the class ended...
He DID ask for my number!!!
I was on cloud nine.
We went out to dinner shortly thereafter...
(The Chinese Place we went to is Still our
we go there every New Years Eve)...
We became nearly inseparable.
I met his family in early November,
He met mine the next week at an early
He proposed on Thanksgiving Weekend...
Got down on one knee and everything!
What a guy!
I knew he was the man for me
because we spent so much time
talking about our Faith...
God has Always been at the Center
of our relationship.
He is sweet, kind, helpful, romantic...
AND a Great Daddy...
It doesn't get any better than that.
Four years after we were married,
Lovey entered the Roman Catholic Church.
He is dedicated and strong...
and he is my
Knight (of Columbus) in Shining Armor!
I smiled so much that day...that when I woke up in the morning
my cheeks and neck were sore!...Can you tell???
Today, I'm a bit heavier...
and his hair is a bit grey-er...
But I love him more today than I did
the day we were married...
and I didn't realize back then
That it was even Possible!
PS. I didn't get this post up yesterday,
because we were walking in the
Philadelphia Columbus Day Parade.
We handed out Hundreds of Rosary Beads
and accompanied a beautiful statue of
The Blessed Virgin Mary.
What a Day!
