18 years of wedded bliss....




In the fall of 1988 I took a Spanish class at MCC. One day during class a young man walked up to the chalkboard and as he passed my desk I heard a voice say, "You could marry him." Never before or since have I gotten better advice, and though it took another year and a half and wondrous miracles before I was able to act on that prompting I will forever be grateful I did! Being married to Rick these past 18 years has truly been wedded bliss. I promise that no other wife has been treated better or loved more than I have been.
To celebrate our anniversary today we took a little day trip to Flagstaff. We had the best time! We ate, went to a movie, shopped--I love shopping with Rick. He treats me like a princess and wants me to have anything and everything that my heart desires. Of course I don't buy anything and everything because we are on a budget, but it's fun that he offers. We also spent the day flirting, exchanging playful banter, and acting like newlyweds. It's great to still be so in love.
