19 Years and Counting...

Tommy and I were both born in 1973.
We met in 1983 for the first time when I moved to Red Oak, we were 10.
We graduated the same year from the same school but only spoke once in the hallway
when my necklace fell apart between classes.  He stopped to help me pick up the pieces. 
*Empty 30/30 shells... that's another story.  ;)
We met up again our freshman year of college.  We shared a math class that meet every Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 to 9:00PM.  I was supposed to test out of it, but ended up missing the test
(on purpose) and for a full semester we talked and became good friends.
Our sophmore year we were both single and went out on our first date.
We never stopped seeing each other after that.
It did take 10-months before either of us would say, "I love you",
but soon after we were engaged and married in 1993, at the age of 20.
*Our first child was due on our 10th anniversary but showed up a week early.
**The twins came 5-years later, but there were 2 so we still sorta have our 10s.  ;)
My diary entry, 7-years before our 1st date.  (4/1985 - 4/1992)
