it was 23 years ago today....

around our 20th anniversary, 3 years ago.....

I first met the wife when she ran the open pottery studio at University of Illinois-Chicago and held a holiday gallery show that I entered.  It was 1989 and she was so pretty that I walked in with my box of pots and couldn't look her in the eye, left my box and fled....

BUT anyway, since I was to teach and work in that studio for the next few years I started seeing her every week, and she was super friendly.  In the fall of 1991 I told her I was moving and, tiny as she is, she asked if she could help.  I didn't need help, but WHAT AN OFFER. December of 1991 we started hanging around a bit outside of the the museum, to the zoo, to BEAUTY AND THE BEAST and then baking cookies at my place.... a year later, Christmas eve 1992 we got married :)

Oh sweetie, thank you :)
