because you said yes...

Thursday, June 02, 2011

he is not known to others for being a softy.
rather the opposite...but he loves me and knows me like no other.
he came home specifically to give me flowers, smiled and said:
                "...because you said yes twenty years ago..."

I never dreamed that twenty years ago I would be married to the boy who asked:

                        "jenny, will you go out with me?"

I was thirteen.  in a jean skirt and keds.
He was fourteen.  he couldn't even drive yet... :)
and we wouldn't go on an actual date until October of 1991.

but today, twenty years ago, is the day our story began...all because "you said yes." :)

this is from a scrapbook (yes, an ACTUAL scrapbook with cut out letters from magazines...yes, that is how old I am.) I gave him our junior year of high school...he's my best friend...always has been, always will be. :)

and a rare drawing from the talented dawn covill ;)  yes dawn, I STILL have it. :)

OK, did you really have to do that? Really? Seriously, I am laughing so hard right now. I forgot about that picture and my attempt at artistry....for the record, I don't even try anymore. But, it does bring back a lot of sweet memories. seemed a lot simpler then :) Happy Anniversary, a little late!
