eleven years later

I had to go dig up this picture when I heard some boys were asking girls to the Homecoming Dance because my first ever date was with Collin to Homecoming. He asked me with a huge tub of ice cream and a shovel in it with a note that read "I would dig it if you would chill with me at the dance!" I can't believe how little we look, and check out those suspenders what a stud muffin! He gave me a silk rose from the dinner table at Riverside Country Club and I put it in my shoe the whole night and still have it. Here we are eleven years later happy in love...

I love that photo from 1996! Neither of you have aged. I always love to hear about when high school sweethearts get married and stay that way. I have a friend who married her highschool sweetheart, and they now have two beautiful children.

Have fun in Vegas. What an opportunity!
