The Homer to my Marge

"Don't make me laugh!  We're supposed to be gazing lovingly at each other!"
First memory is the Koresh countdown you kept on your binder in 8th grade Algebra.

First kiss on the volleyball court at my church in 8th grade while the Beach Boys played in the background.

Found each other on MySpace in 2006.  Both just assumed we would marry.  It was logical.

Married on May 25, 2007; 10 years after we graduated high school, 30 years after the original Star Wars came out in theaters, and on Towel Day.

Stared at each other and 2 lines on a stick in disbelief on June 25, 2007.

January 17, 2008 brought Sophie.
June 26, 2009 brought Gideon.
January 19, 2011 brought Milly.

1 apartment and 2 houses.  2 moves while I was pregnant and both during Thanksgiving / Christmas holidays.

Bills, surgeries, job losses, new cars, car trips, diapers, taxes, grey hairs and cellulite.

You're still that boy in the backwards San Antonio Spurs hat that makes me laugh right before you kiss me.

Happy Valentines Day, beloved.

"I shimmy with joy!"


  1. Aw. Happy Valentines Day to you too, love. :)

  2. I still remember calling Melissa C and yelling "Ben Dyer and Kelly Cobb are married!" I knew she was the only one that would react with as much joy as I did.

    Old friends are awesome. Or maybe "long-time" is a better word than old.

  3. Misa, that is the sweetest thing I've heard! Thank you for telling me about that!

  4. I Love this!!! Y'all are so sweet. Perfect for one another. I just love how God works things out like that : )
