Counting The Minutes!

Pete and I dated while he was at the Coast Guard Academy. During those very fun years I would fly up to New London once a month to see him on the weekends. I remember how excited I would get for those trips. As soon as one ended I was counting the minutes until the next one.

I would get to see him Friday night after school and then watch him play football on Saturday. All the while I was imaging, and hoping, that maybe he would want to marry me when all this star quarterback business was over. I have to admit the whole uniform officer bit was pretty attractive to me.

Somehow during that very fun time in or lives I got him to fall in love with me. He asked me to marry him on March 15th 1996!

How I got this lucky, I will never know.
