What happened on December 4, 1992??

December 4th - just your average day right???!!

Well for me, December 4th does mean something! 16 years ago, my dh proposed to me! We were freshmen in college at WOU. We knew when we started dating our senior year of high school that we were meant to be together. It almost like a formality to wait to get married! We were a little nervous about college but I think people around us were more nervous! There are so many life changes that happen in college. But for us it only strengthened our bond and made us want to succeed TOGETHER! So on a cold night in 1992, Larry proposed to me in front of the State Capitol building. It didn't matter where he did it, I was going to say YES! He even called my mom before he proposed to get her "blessing"!

I was so proud to walk around that college campus with my new ring on! We got married after our sophomore year and even took most of our business classes together! I feel so FORTUNATE that we found each other so young. We have experienced so many things together - high school graduation, college, our wedding, college graduation, first jobs, first apartments, first house, trips, weddings, funerals - but most importantly we had our 3 boys - who have been the most AMAZING part of our journey together! We have everything we have ever wanted and I am so thankful for that!

So here is too many more memories together and a lifetime together! I LOVE YOU LARRY!
