Youth, Love and Marriage

Karen Valentine had a darling Valentine Party, something went wrong and many names were lost. I am trying to post my Love Story but have not been able to do so since something went wrong with her Linky Tool. However, will try again.
We met on a Friday the 13th when I was only 15 and he was 17, this was early in the year, saw him a couple of times at high school dances, I liked him and though he was was so cute, blue eyes and strawberry blond hair. He joined the Navy when he turned 18 in June of same year, he asked me if he could write of course I said yes. We wrote for the next four years and we really got to know each other and our love blossomed. He would come home for one month once a year and that was a magical time for us. When he was discharged he surprised me with a beautiful engagement ring. I remember we were sitting on our lawn swing in our back yard when he kept taking off the ring I was wearing, you know on and off like playing and at one point slipped it off slipped on the engagement ring, oh my gosh! what a wonderful time that was. We planned our wedding and took out our license also on a Friday the 13th, then we wed. Now three grown children and five grown grandchildren and still very much in love. He is still the love of my life and I am his.
Blessings to all...
