23 Years Ago Today...

Amazing - 23 years! Seems like forever and yesterday at the same time. Happy Anniversary to my eternal companion and my best friend. Rich, you have made my life wonderful. I love you!

Rich served his mission in London, and was there to witness the marriage of Charles and Diana in 1981. He stood outside the cathedral with the throngs of people and watched as the royal coaches drove by. Rich even caught a glimpse of Diana's father. And isn't it interesting that Charles & Diana's son has chosen this date — the date of OUR wedding, as the day to marry his princess, the lovely Kate? We wish them all the best. Life is tough enough, but having to live it in a fish bowl in front of the world... good luck, kids! Just remember how much you love each other today and keep your feet on the ground. It's all about love, and sacrifice, and being nice.

So, my sweetheart Rich, here's to growing old together! Thanks for choosing me. I love you so much!
