Twenty-four years ago, I recall eyeing a young man and wondering if he noticed me. I spent over a week working up the courage to speak to him alone, to take a chance with love. I wanted to believe my dream of marrying my first love and high school sweetheart would come true, but I couldn’t guess the bliss I’d feel for following my heart and being brave. It was on the 29th of February that I asked him to go out with me and learned that he was planning on asking me after school.
On this coming leap year, we celebrate 16 years of marriage and 24 years of being together. I’m ecstatic to share more love as I celebrate our 6th anniversary together and our 4th wedding anniversary. They always sound like small numbers until we multiply by four!
