Almost 17 years ago, I went out on the first date with the love of my life. I was only 8 months out of a long relationship and I wasn't looking for anything serious. I just wanted someone to hang out with and have some fun with. My ever helpful friend Kristi set me up with this guy who also volunteered at the rescue squad...little did I know what I was getting into. The day after our *first date, I told Kristi "I'm going to have to watch myself with this one." Of course, she asked me why and I told her "If I'm not careful, I'm going to fall hard and fast for him." He said everything right. He did everything right. And, I was right. I did fall hard and fast. A little over 2 years later, Vic and I were married and I have never, ever regretted giving my heart and soul to this wonderful man. The path our life has taken hasn't been smooth and it certainly hasn't been easy but I could not have picked a better traveling companion. He makes me laugh so easily and he holds me and dries my tears when life gets to me. He truly was made for me and I thank God I found him.
The love of my life turns 50 today and it would mean a lot to me if you joined me in wishing him a happy birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HONEY! I hope we have at least 50 more together.
