11 Years Ago-I Did It!
Many years ago I spotted the love of my life on the football field. He was coaching the other flag team. We became friends and the following year, my 6 year old son, Jullien, ended up on his flag team. The attraction was undeniable, we started dating but really didn't think it could go anywhere because we each had 3 kids and 6 kids was way too many!
Everywhere we went, people stared at us and our huge entourage of miniature people following behind us, pushing, shoving, yelling and fighting with each other. It was chaos...but it grew on us. The kids also grew closer and began to accept one another.
We tried to fight the enevitable, but two years later, we could no longer imagine a life without each other in it.
Anthony asked me to marry him, which I happily agreed to. We were married on December 31, 1999 on the Corona Del Mar Bluffs overlooking the ocean in Newport Beach, CA.
Through the past 11 years of ups and downs, stretching, growing, forgiving, trusting, overcoming and putting our faith in the Lord, our love has grown stronger.
Happy Anniversary to the Love of my life!
