Happy 3rd Anniversary to Us!!!

Seven years ago I met this beautiful lady, we chatted on the phone back and forth for a couple of weeks, then decided to met in person. Our first date was in Victorville, CA. half way between our homes. We met for coffee at Barns and Noble bookstore and instantly felt the connection, next was dinner at a local BBQ place (yes we know, don't eat messy food on a first date). But that was the idea, at our age, we just said, this is us and had a great time. Dinner went so good, we didn't want it to end, so a movie was in order, Meet the Fockers was playing, we laughed till we cried at some parts and just kept enjoying the evening. Before we knew it that first date was over, and we both knew we had found something special. Fast forward a few years, Sheryl's mom (who was quite the lady herself) wanted to know when I was going to make an honest woman out of her daughter?? We had been talking about marriage for a bit already, so it was time to make it official. On June 28, 2008 we married, it was a beautiful ceremony in the back yard of our home in Amarillo Texas. What made it really special was all of our kids were able to come from all over the country to attend.

This year the love of my life and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary with a quiet dinner at a local restaurant here in Alamogordo, NM. The restaurant is Memories and is located in an old 1900 style house which had been converted, imagine a nice Bed and Breakfast decor.

We started with a nice glass of wine and the best Clams in White Wine Sauce we've have ever had.
Dinner was a seafood feast, Grilled Shrimp for me and Grilled/Glazed Salmon for Sheryl. Dinner was excellent as usual for this place and the company even better.

I could not ask for a more beautiful woman, both inside and out to spend my life with. Now we are both living our dream of fulltime RVing, wow I don't think life can get much better!!! So here's to many, many more years together and just Lovin our Life!!!
