Our anniversary is coming up the end of this month.
I met Stan in September of '86. This is the first picture I took of him and during the week while he was away at grad school, I'd stare at it thinking, "Is he really dating me?"
We spent a lot of time hanging out at his parents' house that year. It was my home away from home my senior year of college.
(I spent a lot of time here thinking, "Why does his mother call this furniture a pit group???" )
This is my graduation day and a hat that I bought Stan which he obviously has forgotten because he just looked at this picture and said, "What was I doing in that hat!?!"
This is us being silly in the condo where we did not live together the year after I graduated.
(That was a good mirror. It took 5 lbs off those who stood in front of it, so I did often. When I came to visit.)
On our honeymoon in '90, we drove south and landed in St. Augustine for a day.
("What was I doing in those shorts?!?")
This is us in D.C. visiting a friend named Togni. (Actually here we were with Togni visiting Lincoln.) I would be willing to bet that you don't know anyone named Togni. (Hi Togni googling yourself!!) This was a year before our first child was born. Stan really hates his glasses in this picture. Togni had a house rat and a gargantuan fish tank that spanned over the head of her bed, if I'm remembering correctly. I know I'm correctly remembering the rat...
And that's it. The kids were born, the romance went out the window and now we're just a worn down 40something couple waiting for them get jobs and move out.
Kidding!! I was kidding...and it's a miracle we did have kids with me walking around in a lumberjack jacket and baseball cap.
It was fun to reminisce.
