I guess you can call this a guest blog post, or maybe a hijacking would be more appropriate since my wife doesn’t know that I’m taking over her blog for a moment. Tomorrow marks 17 years that I have been blessed to be married to my beloved Author Tiffany. I can still picture the first time I laid eyes on her.
It was 1993 in the Denver suburb of Arvada, Colorado. We both worked for Blockbuster Video, although at different locations. My store was being closed and she came in as part of a crew from the store I was being transferred to. Did I know at that instant that I had found the person I would spend the rest of my life with? No, that only happens in fairy tales. While she was certainly a cutie patootie, the idea of love at first site is too superficial for me. I can tell you though, that it didn’t take long for me to fall head over heels. Tiffany is jovial and fun-loving, kind-hearted and caring, with the confidence to succeed and the humility to appreciate what she has.
If it sounds like I’m describing the perfect mate, I guess I am, especially considering I’ve even managed to turn her into a sports fan over the years. I like to tease her sometimes that her once simple tastes have become more extravagant as time goes by, but the simple truth is if you want to see my wife sparkle, just give her a Diet Coke and some chocolate. Honestly though, I will do everything in my power to make sure she is happy because she has given me the best 17 years of my life. I take great delight in watching her live her dream as an author, and I look forward to walking hand-in-hand with her through our continued life’s journey together.
Happy anniversary my love, I am forever yours.
