The Weekly Photo Challenge theme is Together.
Today, Al and I are celebrating our seventeenth wedding anniversary!
When we married we had already known each other for seventeen years.
During that time we were engaged. We broke up and went our separate ways.
We met again a number of years later.
I had a career, living first in Southern California, then Northern California.
Al was in the Air Force, serving overseas and stateside.
We stayed in touch at a time when their was no e-mail.
Al eventually came home. We were married a few months later.
Finally together, we are best friends, partners, and parents to our special Mija.
Happy Anniversary, Al!
As you may imagine, this is the condensed version of the story. For more on how Al and I met, see my post, aptly called December 24th – The Day We Met.
