...14 Years Later

Allen & Allison

Circa, Fall 1997

Our First Homecoming together!

For those who don't know, my husband and I were high school sweethearts. Yes, that is correct - oh the things he has had to endear with me! Like my crazy antics that embarrass his more quiet self. My college years - I could make a whole seperate blog for those stories....like the time I came home to find my roommate butt naked in my bed....or when my chinese exchange student roommate brought home her 'boyfriend'...or when my mouth got us in a pickel at a frat party [opps!], but, I digress. Those are other stories I should reserve for my memoir ;)

In any event, while later this year hubby and I will celebrate 3 years of marriage, I use that term loosely as we have technically been each others ball and chain for 14 years now. Yep, that's right. 14 years ago today I was sitting in an old, white Buick, next to the man I was to marry ... impatient with him because it was taking him 20 gazillion years to ask me to be his girlfriend!

So, in honor of an official 14 years, here is a quick trip down memory lane. Forgive me - I am too lazy to hook up the scanner I have from 1996 so I am posting pictures of pictures :)

Allen's 18th Birthday
