15 Years Ago...



It started with a glance out of the corner of my eye.



It then turned into a good long stare when he wasn't looking.



Which quickly became a High School girls crush.



Crushes have their way of becoming obsessions.



Obsessions have a way of getting a little out of control and making The Creator of said obsession a little angry.



Which gave some time for The Creator to perfect things.



And perfect things have a way of working out perfectly.



Perfecting something called Love isn't always easy.




Love is so strong it deserves to be recognized with symbols, dates, tokens, and certificates.



But those things aren't what defines this LOVE.





This LOVE multiplied 4 times over.



This LOVE 16 years later looks and feels different than when it first began.



It feels like a thirst being quenched. Like a need being met.




Like winning the lottery. It feels like "a peach, soft, fuzzy, and juicy" says the man I married 15 years ago June 3, 1995.





I met and married a boy who has turned into the man that can still make me smile like no other person I know.


He is now without a doubt my best friend, lover, amazing father of our 4 children and still the one I would rather be with than anyone else on planet earth!

Noel,
Such a beautiful tribute. And such an accomplishment -- especially considering all you two have packed in in that decade-and-a-half. Please get out a stepstool, stand on it and hug your giant's neck for me. Love you; so proud of you two...

Thank you friends and family for all your beautiful words and encouragements and especially for the support over the years. Ya know, a good marriage takes the support of family and friends for sure. "Mend it, don't End it" favorite quote from Marley and Me movie, main character says this to his single buddy in regards to the fight he just had with his wife, and it just reminds me of how important it has been for monosco to have the support of those around us. SO- all that to say thanks ♥
