To the Man


This is for the man I fell in love with 19 years ago.

I recently wrote a lengthy story about how T and I met and fell in love but decided it was too much for the blog. Who really needs all those details? In a nut shell, we met, we dated, we broke up, we got back together, and we got married. Isn't that romantic? Your basic boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl love story. The most dramatic part being where T calls it off and Kelly says "you'll be back" and she is right. It was nothing short of a miracle. For comic relief throw in a story where Kelly takes T over to a girl named Maren's apartment so that he can tell her in no uncertain terms that she shouldn't call him anymore since he has gotten back together with his true love (me). Too bad too because I really liked the name Maren for one of my future daughters but since now there was history there, we couldn't use it.

Can I just tell you that I feel very lucky to have snagged myself such a great spouse? He is funny and kind. He is handsome and smart. He takes care of me. He works so hard. He is an inspiration really. And even though he broke my heart in 1991 he has spent the last two decades making it up to me. He's a tramp, but I love him! And we make adorable kids.

That is indisputable.

Sounds like your love story is similiar to Doug and my story. We broke up before we got married too. (I'm still a little mad at him about that... and it's been 10 years since the break up.)

I'd love to read your unabridged love story. You'll have to post it somewhere anonymously for us curious readers. :)

If I get enough requests I may post it on Valentines. It it pretty long though and I have a hard time thinking it would be interesting enough for my readers. It does involve dumpster climbing and reference to old boyfriends. Anyone's interest piqued?

Yes Dallas- you have a keen eye. Those are airplane valentines. We have made those for years. The boys like them. They are really easy!

Thanks for your kind words.
