20 Years Ago Today...




It doesn't seem like it has been that long, but 20 yrs. ago today, I met James. It was kind of a crazy weekend. I was home from Utah, to be in my friends wedding and supposed to fly back the next day. Well, James came to the reception and when I saw him I thought I really have to meet this guy. I didn't know at the time that he and his friend came to the reception hoping to find a date for Tom(James' best-friend), so that they could double on a date that night. James already had a date lined up. But when we met he told Tom that if he(Tom) didn't ask me out quick then he was going to ask me! James ended up standing his date up and we went out that night. He drove me to the airport the next day. A few weeks later when I came home for Thanksgiving, I decided to quit my job in Utah and stay home to see how things would work out with James. They worked out Great! Tonight we are celebrating with dinner at the Shadowbrook in Santa Cruz . I have a great Husband! I am looking forward to the next 20+ years with him.
