Fourteen Years With the Same Guy!

Yup! Today is my anniversary! Hubby and I have been married for 14 years today. Of course, when I got up this morning and said it was my anniversary, I had to explain what that was to my 5 year old.
Hubby and I met when we were in high school; I was a lowly freshman and he was a senior, so we did not date then but we were friends. When I was a senior, we both worked at the Piggly Wiggly (such a southern name for a grocery store!) and commuted together to college. That's when we first started dating. We dated for a year at that time but broke up around my birthday. Hubby would probably see fit to point out here that I broke up with him! I didn't see him again for 9 years.
By that time, I had finished my undergrad and graduate work. I was living with my grandmother and working an internship at a clinic in the town where she lived. One day I was seeing a patient at the hospital and ran into him at the elevators. We started dating, and two years later we were married. Fourteen years and two kids later, here we are! We haven't done anniversary gifts in a while but we are going out to eat Saturday night and the kids are staying with his mom. Peace! That's what I get for my anniversary!

It seems like forever since I've posted about quilting but I am busy. We had our guild meeting last night and played 'Strip' Poker so I came home with some strips to use. I've also been working on the Diamond Trails Twin. The center is done but I'm having to rethink how I did it because the drop is either going to be too short or too long the way I planned.

Happy Anniversary! Enjoy the dinner out. A nice meal without having to cut someone else's food into small pieces is heaven to me.
