A dozen years

12 years ago today, I met the woman that would change my life. We were at a retreat for Gordon College student ministry leaders.

Being the incredibly romantic guy that I am, I threw a ball of yarn at her.

Ok, so that won’t make the “how to win yourself a wife” books. But it helped catch her attention.

Before we knew it we were splashing in puddles as though we’d both grown up doing that.

12 years later, 11 of them married, at least 11 moves, 3 kids, one dog attempt, lots of laughter and lots of tears. And she’s still my best friend.

Hi hon, let’s go for gross! (12×12=144 years)
