I said, "I do!" to the most amazing man in the world ... Ken!
September 14th 1989 I went to Penn State for the weekend to visit my boyfriend and I met his roommates Ken and Todd. The next semester I joined them at Main Campus and for the next few years my friendship grew with Ken. He was my sounding board, a late night talk or a big warm hug when my "less than amazing" boyfriend would let me down. My mom once said to me when I called home, "Why don't you just date Ken, you talk more about him than you do R---."
I replied, "Oh, Mom, he is way too nice. I wouldn't be able to stand being treated so well!" (WHAT?!)
By the end of our junior year we had both parted ways with our college sweethearts. During finals week, early one morning when we were supposed to be studying he smiled and said, "She (ex-girlfriend) told me this would happen."
I look around confused. "What?"
"She told me that I would fall in love with you!"
And the rest is history!
(I love that story!)
July 24, 1993 in front of all our friends and family (almost 300 of them!) we said our "I do's" and danced to Marc Cohn's TRUE COMPANION!
**Funny piece of trivia ... September 14, 1997 (8 years, to the day, after we met) our first baby was born!
You have been my rock ever since that first day we met. You are beautiful in every way! God has blessed me with a life-long best friend and I praise Him everyday for the love we share! You make me feel safe. You are genuine and strong. I truly cannot imagine my life without you. You ARE my True Companion! Now and forever!
Happy Anniversary, Boog!
I LOVE YOU!
