Memory Lane > You Had Me From Hello

Gary.  

It's been 10 years now since we met online.
I'll never forget the thrill of hearing your voice for the first time on the phone.  

And then when we met face to face for the first time at the hotel.  It was fairy-tale like.  You were my knight in shining armor.

A little walk down memory lane....


Above.  The night we met.




The day I fell in love with you - when I saw what a wonderful father you are to your children.


The day you fell in love with me - When we were visiting my friend in the nursing home.


Remember the beautiful bike rides in Indiana?  


And our very first Lobster dinner together?  Oh, yes.  That was delicious.


You had me from hello...


Remember the picture above?  We were at the courthouse getting our marriage license.  


Always having fun.  


Romantic dining at the Cornish Manor?  
The best fried oysters ever.


Laughing...


Good times...


Yard sales....


Our first Easter Sunday together...


Our very first home together...   in West Virginia.


Our romantic 5th wedding anniversary stay at Romancing the Stone.  That's when we realized we were getting old.  


Too many flights of stairs for us up and coming seniors.  LOL.


Times at Lake Michigan....


And who could forget our baby>  

Thanks for the memories. 

We met online in late February 2001
 and met in person at the end of March 2001.  

Happy Anniversary.

  1. What a wonderful love story in pictures!! They are all so good. But I think my favorites are the courthouse, Easter Sunday, the first house. Those affected me the most, I could literally feel the love coming out. I hope you are going to have a very special evening.
