On this day in 1993, I was attending my wedding rehearsal. Now, this is where we are. 17 years seems like such a long time to me. I know that to those who are grandparents, it might not be. But for me, well, I’ve never been married this long before, so it’s long to me. What? There are a lot of things I love about my man. Good thing for me is that not only do I absolutely love him. I like him. A. Lot. We are so blessed. I thought I would share with you 17 interesting tidbits about us in our 17 years.
