“Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of little things.”- Frank A. Clark
My husband and I started dating 16 years ago today! Some couples don’t celebrate this day, but we have it down to the time. Our first date immediately followed the Olivet Nazarene University Homecoming football game. We met in my dorm room, watched Ghost and nervously exchanged glances at each other. I lived in a ‘girls only’ dormitory and the boys were supposed to be OUT by 6:00 pm that day. The movie ran a little long (oops). As Chris pulled his bulky green winter coat on I reached up to give him a hug, and he went for it! He gave me the sloppiest kiss. It was truly romantic. (swoon) And so our first kiss occurred on November 7, 1998, at 6:30 pm. (Fun Fact: Chris received a $200 fine from the university, because he broke the rules. LOL)
One of the reasons we celebrate this special (small) moment is because we believe in FOREVER, and any moment that has led to so many memories (our life together, the adoption of our son, the birth of our daughter) is worth celebrating!
