Let's Keep Dating Forever

Ever wonder what your life will look like five, ten, 
twenty years from now?

Well. Today is my “sixteen years from now” moment.

December 12th, 1998 a handsome young man knocked on my door.
The front door.
The door that no one ever used.
But, really, how was he supposed to know that everyone uses the back door?

He walked in and tried to make eye contact with my parents, while at the same time tried not to make eye contact.
You know what I mean.
Trying to be respectful but super nervous.
Like, if you look me too long in the eyes, you’ll read my soul kind of stuff.

We left for a casual date and I don't think either of us knew what was about to happen. 

That night started a journey I never knew could be.
A life I wouldn't trade for anything.
A joy I found that I had never known before.
A love that will last a lifetime.

Let’s keep dating forever, my love.
