Yesterday was Valentine's Day and also my hunny's birthday. We have been together for 17 years and married for 15. I am almost at that point where he has been a part of my life longer than I was without him. I like that.

We met at Piedmont Bible College when I was a junior and he was a transferring sophomore. I knew the first time I saw him in the PBC cafeteria that I liked him. He had many of the qualities I deemed necessary as a 19 year old:
1. He was handsome
2. He was tall
3. He was an athlete
4. He was from the south
5. He had his own car
Such important factors when choosing a life mate, huh?
We went out the second week of school that fall to TJ's Deli in Winston-Salem and after our date, he very kindly told me he had come to college to play basketball and not to date. With which, I replied that was fine and dandy...for now. :)
We dated on and off throughout the fall and by Christmas I knew that this was the man God had sent for me to spend the rest of my life went. We began seriously dating October 30, 1993 and have not broken up since. He asked me to marry him after dinner at Tj's in May of 1994 and we were married June 10, 1995. Many moves and children later I still feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Someone told me the other day they thought I really did get the best husband...I would have to agree.
Happy birthday and Valentine's day to the best husband and daddy ever. I love you to the moon and back. I really did get the best husband...I really did.
