We met playing softball and I immediately noticed her little legs running the bases. I’m 5’10” and she’s 5’3”…I thought it was so cute since mine are much longer! I quickly fell in love with her sharp wit, southern charm and those puppy dog eyes. She makes me happier than I ever thought I could be - whether we’re watching our favorite teams, going to movies, taking a cruise or just being at home with our kitties. She’s the macaroni to my cheese…R2D2 to my C-3po…tumbleweed to my cactus - we go together in every way. We married on April 1st, our 25th anniversary, since we’re ‘fools for love!’ Corny, but that’s just how we are! We actually wear the same size ring, so during the ceremony we removed a ring we had both worn since the beginning of our relationship and placed it on the left hand of the other. That was really special. Now we’re getting ready to celebrate our 27th anniversary…the first and only relationship for both of us. I truly wish this type of love for everybody, because every single day is a happy day.
