A Dream Come True!

Saturday, October 12, 1996

The day my dreams came true!

Yes, Lovey and I were married on

Columbus Day...

and it has truely been a

Voyage of Discovery!

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

favorite restaurant...

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

Thanksgiving celebration...

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!
