Momo Fali - Thanks! I need to touch up the photo and lighten it a little, but it's my first scan on my new scanner.

Giggle - Awww, thanks! We actually started dating the year before high school, in middle school.

Kim said...

Wow! My husband and I met when I was 19 and he was 24, and we got married when I was 23 and he was 28.

Rhea said...

Kim - That's pretty cool!

Valarie said...

Aww isn't that sweet!!! Look at your 17 year old self! :) My 17 year old picture is BAD, BAD I tell you.

Rhea said...

Valarie - What's wrong with your 17 year old picture? You're piqued my cruiosity!

Jeff B said...

That's really cool. Lisa and I have been together for more than half our lives now, over 22 years.

When you can fall in love with your friend it makes a big difference.

CrystalChick said...

That is such a sweet picture of you and your honey. :)
I was a senior when I met my sweetie and by the time I graduated we were very serious and married a few months after graduation.
Twenty five years later.... OMG, has it been 25 years together already?

Kat said...

Awww...I met my husband at a bar :-)

BritGal' Sarah said...

Aww bless your cotton socks, what an adorable piccie

Emily said...

How sweet! :)

├╝berburber said...

That's a great shot. I didn't meet my husband 'til I was in my late 20's. I often wonder what it would have been like if we'd met in high school...!

Andrea said...

Rhea,
I need your help/opinion asap! Can you e-mail me? andreamineurope@googlemail.com Thx!

Rhea said...

Jeff - 22 years is awesome! Sort of a rare thing these days.

Crystal Chick - 25 years is incredible!! You and Jeff need to share your secrets to a good marriage.

Kat - A bar, huh? That sounds like fun! Hubby and I started flirting in Latin class. lol

OhMommy - Thanks! We were young. We had planned on waiting until we graduated from college to get married but certain "things" popped up and changed those plans.

Kiera - gosh, thanks! We decided to start "going out" at a Poison concert at 13 years old. lol

Rhea said...

Britgal Sarah - What if I don't wear cotton socks? (I do, just wondering)

Emily - thanks for your sweet comment! And, thanks for coming by!

Uburburber - I'm the exact same, except I wonder what would have happened if hubby and I had met as adults...

Andrea - I emailed you. Just in case it didn't go through, you can reach me at rhea@tx.rr.com

Indy said...

Cute photos! Where does the time go?

SKELLER said...

awwwww. See, that's the way to display a couple pictures, and use a couple words to get the story told!!! After this last week, I've GOT to get back to that formula [wink, smirk].

Very sweet picture of you and dh.

Misty Dawn said...

What an awesome pic! What a great story of a long and lasting relationship! I love it!

tearese said...

awe, nice picture. I know a few people who married hs sweehearts, but not many. I met my Hubby when I was 25 and we got engaged after one month, and were engaged for four months.

tearese said...

ps, theres a 17 year old pic of me in this post. Yours is much better.

Rhea said...

Indy - Time flies, that's for sure. My son is almost the age I was when I met hubby for the first time. Yikes!!

skeller/Susan - I think I learned from the master of little words, beautiful photos! lol You've inspired me...but I don't last long without lots of words...it's the writer in my tryin' to bust out. hehe

Misty Dawn - Thanks! I hope my hubby and I are long lasting. We've had some rocky ups and downs, that's for sure. Marriage is not simple and easy.

Tearese - We were warned we weren't going to make it marrying at such a young age...so far so good... Wow, engaged after one month and married in four? That's super fast! I'm amazed. I guess you both knew what you wanted. lol I'll come check out your picture in just a few minutes.

crazy4danes said...

Beth from the Funny Farm said...

This is a GREAT story! Love the photos! I met my husband when I was 18 and he was 25. We got married a year later.. now 20 years later!

Sometimes it is just supposed to BE! Here is to many more years!

Rhea said...

Mama Bird Diaries, Crazy4Danes and Beth from the Funny Farm - Thank you to all of you for coming by and commenting! We do have some funny stories from over the years. I used to paper his house, he used to ride his bike to mine, etc. I hope you have many, many years left to enjoy each other. :o)

Catherine said...

Didn't want to comment anymore, but I can't resist to congratulate you both. beautiful life story.

Rhea said...

Catherine - Thanks! However, as I see my oldest son reaching the age I started dating hubby, I'm starting to think we fell in love way too young...I'm not ready for my son to grow up!!
