Happy 19th Anniversary!

sandi and cheryl 19Yesterday was a blur of iPhone updates (Thanks Jimbo!) Haircuts for the nephew (he wanted to look like this guy. I think we nailed it!) A trip to the beach (Thank you gorgeous Southern California weather!) And a holiday boat cruise (Thanks Dave & Margie!) So by the time I realized it, the day had flown by without a mention of mine and Cheryl’s 19th anniversary.

I don’t want you to think I forget. I didn’t. I just didn’t profess my love and gratitude on the internets.

So I am going to do that now.

When Cheryl and I first met, it wasn’t really love at first sight. It kinda was for me, but for her? Not so much. She wanted nothing to do with me. I scared the shit out of her. I literally had to try every move in the book to get her to go out with me. Love songs, poems, love sick calls at 3am…In todays day and age they call it stalking, but back then I was just trying to get my foot in the door.

It worked.

Now 19 years later we have built a life, a family and a home.

Is it easy? No, not always. I am a total pain in the ass and on some days, she isn’t much better. But we work at it. We have a mutual respect for each other that has only grown throughout the years and when all else fails we have a remarkable friendship that keeps us afloat.

I really couldn’t ask for more.

And neither could she because I am a real catch. 😉

Happy anniversary my love!
