July 4, 1986, I married my best friend. I was recently divorced with 2 small daughters ages 5 & 8. I wasn't really looking for another relationship. I just prayed to God that he would put in my life the person that was best for my daughters and myself.
When I met him I enjoyed his company so much. Then we fell in love and he was good with and for my daughters so we got married July 4, 1986. This was he best day of my life.
Throughout these 29 years of knowing him , we have never cursed each other, called each other out of our names, hit or disrespected one another. It's almost unbelievable how well we are to each other. I love hime so much.
Now you might be wondering why would anyone get married on he 4th of July. Well I wanted to get married in a month when it wouldn't conflict with other occassions like - Mother's Day, Father's Day, Easter, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Christmas and New Years. But most importantly because there's always awesome fireworks on the 4th and it's a day I'm sure he will always remember. Here are some pics.

August 2005 - Our 50th Birthday Party (yes we're both born the same month and same year, his birthday is 8/1/55 and mine is 8/26/55, so I always tells him that he's older than me even though it's only 25 days lol)
