Has It Really Been 31 Years?

Actually it's been longer than that.  Our first date was April 1, 1978 (yes, I know, April Fools Day - don't go there).  This picture is of us a couple of years after that, but before we got married....




...we graduated from college ONE WEEK before we got married.  How crazy it that?

Mr. T, Orlando G-ma, Tita and me!

Then within the week we got married! Crazy kids! I'm sure my parents were un-nerved, but they so loved Mr. Tennis that I think they would have said, "please marry her"!


And we did! In all our 1980's glory!

Happy 31st Anniversary to my best friend, Mr. Tennis.  Those who know him\
know what a wonderful man he is.

It's been a great 31 years and I wouldn't trade them for anything. I do wonder what I was thinking with those frames though.
