Long-time followers already know the backstory. I met Marc before classes even started my freshman year at Georgia Tech*. We dated through college, got engaged Christmas of my senior year (he’d just graduated) and married the following November. We celebrated our 36th anniversary on Tuesday**. He gave me a card and a lovely post on Instagram.
I cleaned off a counter (and pledged to keep it clean) and re-instituted I Love You Because***
I honestly don’t remember when I put the frame away, but it’s been at least a few years. On Tuesday, I told Marc I thought we were better together when we had an easy way to leave each other little love notes.
Yesterday I came home to this.
Yep. I’m pretty sure we’ll be done with The Crown Season 3 by Monday.
And just think, 36 more years and this could be us! (minus the crown of course 😉 )
Wishing y’all a wonderful weekend!
*My across the hall dorm-mate was dating one of Marc’s fraternity brothers. She thought Marc needed a girlfriend and she introduced us. Sadly, she and I have lost touch, but Marc and I are both grateful for that gift!
**Even new followers can probably do the math and realize yep, I got married just two days after my 21st birthday.
***Kal Barteski was one of the first artists I followed when I “found” the internet back in 2007. I celebrated her marriage, then welcomed the births of her three girls… and mourned the all-too-early passing of her husband, Dan. When I searched for links to add to this post, I found this blurb book, all ready to go.
