December 8, 1984. This is the day that I married my best friend.
Twenty-four years ago in a small church, we exchanged our vows.
We were young, in love, and had our whole future ahead of us.
I think we were 12. At least when I look at this photo, I think so! (Don't worry, we were of legal age!)
We had no money, and both came from hard working families that scrimped to get by each week. We got married with no photographer present, no wedding planner, no full on reception.
Friends and family were the guests. We thought it was the best day of our lives!
We honeymooned in Cincinnati at the Kings Island Winterfest.
We took a sleigh ride, used roasted chestnuts as pocket warmers, and enjoyed the sights and sounds of Christmas!
This is our favorite time of the year!
This is a photo of us while we were dating.
Don't you just love the 80's glasses?
How big could they be?
So on this day, I toast my wife, and look forward to the next 24 years!
