A Love Story.
Today, Prince Charming and I celebrate our 16th Wedding Anniversary! Wow! 16 years!!! It's hard to believe that many years have passed!
In April, 1992, I was 19 years old, working in a local supermarket. I had been in a relationship with another boy for a few months and wasn't happy. One night, I had a very vivid dream that showed me what my "dream guy" would look like (wierd, I know, but I have dreams like this a lot). The next day, a new guy started working at the same supermarket. I was shocked when I saw him... it was the guy from my dream!!!! Seriously folks, I can't make this stuff up!!!
Over the next couple of months the Prince and I got to know each other. I found him to be like no one I'd ever met before. He was kind, sincere, soft spoken... and so darn handsome! I broke off my relationship with the other boy and pursued the Prince.
I asked him to spend time with myself and my friends twice, and both times he had other plans. Finally, the third time, he said yes.
On June 27, 1992, a group of us set off to the movies to see Batman. Each "couple" in a different car. For some odd reason, the Prince and I were the only ones that ended up at the movie theater. This was before the age of cell phones, so we had no idea that the others had decided to go and play pool instead of going to the movies. Well, the Prince and I enjoyed the movie anyway.
From that day on, we were inseparable. On July 4th he mentioned that I was the girl that he wanted to marry. I joked it off, and never really took him seriously. He asked a few more times over the next few months, again I didn't really take him seriously. Just before Thanksgiving, it was the real deal... ring and all!!!!
On June 12, 1993 we became Mr. and Mrs. Prince Charming! It was the happiest day of my life!
On January 29, 1994 we welcomed our first child, a son- "George". George is the spitting image of his handsome daddy! (Don't do the math, it won't add up). On January 23, 1997 we welcomed our daughter- "Josie".
The rest is history! I love this man more today than I did 16 years ago. He is my best friend, the best companion I could ever ask for. I would rather spend time with him than anyone else! He is truely my Prince Charming!
Thank you for allowing me to share our love story with all of you!
