20 Years....So Far

So Monday, Monty & I "celebrated" our "20th Year of Togetherness".
Though we had been "hanging out" at town & Church dances for a while, we became an "official" couple on August 15, 1991, when he asked me during an evening phone call, "So....How far do you want this relationship to go?" Just as he asked that, my Mom walked into the room.....all I felt like I could say (so she wouldn't know what we were talking about & what he had asked) was..."Way Far!!"
I was 15 (& a half) & Monty had just turned 16 the month before. As per Church Standards, we didn't actually go out on "dates" until I turned 16.
I'm not afraid to say that I'm 35 years old now.....OH WAIT...'kay..that was a little scary to say, but anyway.....We have been together for more than half of our lives...in one form or another..High School Sweethearts, College Guy & High School Girl, Missionary & Pathetic Counting-EACH-AND-EVERY-DAY (we were apart) Girlfriend, Engaged Couple, Newly Weds, New Parents, & now......Settled & Still in Love Lovers.
I love you Baby!!!!

  1. Awe! That's cool that you actually remember those kind of dates. I was trying to remember the date when Matt and I got engaged and I just can't. I'll have to check to see if that monumental occasion actually made it into my journal...
    Congratulations, Monty & Susan!
