I love you yeah-yeah-yeah!

We were married on Valentine's Day nineteen years ago. This was taken last week.

I wrote a parody song to the tune of He Ain't Got a Barrel of Money, in 1994. I entered it in the Valentine's Day contest at Y-98 radio station KYKY.  I won a complete wedding! Gold bands, his tux, professional wedding photo, my flowers, a reception on the Alton Belle and more. We were married on air with 97 other couples in the exquisite Grand Hall upstairs at Union Station. We had already set our original wedding date for April. My honey married me twice! The first time in public, on air, enmasse. He says he married me twice to make it stick. Not one day has gone by that I haven't laughed with him or AT him. I have been so happy these past years, and I know that I am so blessed.

Nicole is  my funny "little" honey. She's aware that Valentine's Day is about expressing love. On the way to school this week we've been playing a game. I tell her that I love her to the tree tops, and she competes. I watch her in my rear-view mirror sitting in her car seat THINKING.  "Nana, I love you to the top of the trees, and to the bottom of the ocean." We continue to one-up each other, but she got me today!

"Nana, I love you to the tree tops, up  into the sky, around the whole wide world,  (then she folded her hands and bowed her head) and alllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll the way to heaven. That's how much I love YOU." She looked up and smiled. "See, I love you the most." Let her think it!

 May you feel the love today and everyday, too.

I hope tomorrow is a wonderful day for the two of you. You two are made for each other. (Usually I say that with snarky intentions, but not this time.)

Well, he should be able to remember at least ONE of your anniversaries!
