Happy Anniversary!

My first date with Spencer almost wasn't.  He was the 4th date I had that week, which is evidence of the theory of Feast or Famine.  The first 3 dates were not that great.  Except for the one that was REALLY awful, I don't really even remember who my dates were with or what we did.  But it was enough for me to swear off dating.  I was ready to call Spencer and tell him that I was unable to get together with him.

Fortunately, I lived with and was raised by Ms. Dependable; therefore, I did not feel that I could cancel with Spencer, when he had been planning for over a week.

Spencer and I have been together exclusively since that first date.  It has been 23 years ago, yesterday, that we had that date.

When we were dating we often put our noses and foreheads together to talk.  Yesterday he left the stand just before Sacrament Meeting began.  He knelt on the bench in front of me, leaned over, and put his nose and forehead on mine and said, "It is an anniversary today." 

My heart went pitter-patter.
