15 years ago, I said the "I Do" that changed my life forever.
15 years ago, I was a girl barely out of high school and madly in love with a boy after I'd spent only a few hours with him. I was a girl hit by the lightening bolt and forever linked to a boy I didn't know existed a few months before.
|Peter and his grandpa... early 1980s|
and a girl
Who became this boy and girl...
Who, fifteen years and 5- but soon to be 6- birthed babies that number 10 altogether, and college graduations and buying houses and all the wonderful and awful things in between...
became this man and woman...
Crystal is, apparently, the traditional 15 year gift, but throw that to the wind. We're celebrating our lovefest, my birthday, and our babymoon all at once with a trip to our favorite restaurant in NYC. That trumps crystal any day in my book.
I love you, Peter. I loved you the first moment our eyes locked in Gerard Hall. I loved you the first time I saw you smile. I loved you the first time I held you while you cried. And I love you today more than yesterday while I anticipate loving you even more tomorrow. I did. I do. And I will.
