"SEVEN YEAR ITCH"


MY LOVE STORY

The first time I saw Ronnie was in 7th grade. He came in the middle of the year. It was 1st hr English with Mr. Hall at Gilbert Jr High. Ronnie walked in that morning and walked down the row of desks with his tucked in rayon button up shirt (that was in style then). My heart honestly did a flutter and now I know why. Ronnie ended up switching classes after only a couple of days and I never really saw or thought about him again. That was until we ended up in the same 8th grade band class. Ronnie and I ended up "going out". We broke it off at the very end of our sophmore year in highschool. We always stayed close friends. We hugged on the football field gradution night and I felt that little heart flutter thing again, but blew it off. Ronnie moved to Utah for a while after graduation, we talked almost everyday (only as friends). When he came back he came to see me, we hugged and there was that flutter again. We dated again for about a year and a half and then he SURPRISED me Christmas Eve with my diamond. We were married May 19,2000 and the rest is history...

How fun that you have all those old pictures! So cute. I'm going to have to dig up some pics of Artie and I when we were dating. It obviously won't go back as far as you two. So fun to remember those times on your anniversary. So fun that we have the same anniversary. I'll always remember seeing you guys in the temple!
