Good Things

As a young lady living in Germany with my family, I would often fret about not being married. I was, after all, 21!

While working at the U.S. military commissary, I had a cute little boss, Louis Rozario. He was my height. Lou was retired military who opted to stay in Europe (he'd married a German Fraulein years before) and worked for the government after retiring.

Sometimes my co-workers would tease me about boys and marriage. They'd also embarrass me with comments about 'married' life. Lou would always come to my aid and/or defense, give me a hug and tell me....

Good things come to those who wait.

Boy was he ever right!

My wait was long but my good thing is an amazingly selfless, sincere, kind, sweet, talented, funny, romantic, valiant, hard-working, handsome husband.

He was feeling kind of dead the day this photo was taken. Poor guy worked so hard getting ready for Halloween, it nearly killed him!

Seriously, three days to set-up, three hours and over 500 trick-or-treators, three days to dismantle. It was hard work but he loves it!

Thanks for marrying me, my Valiant!

I love you. XOXOXOXO

I absolutely love that picture! Classic! You guys are SO much fun. I miss you. We moved home to Utah, any chance you want to move next to me and be my visiting teacher again? I loved that! Hope you are all doing well. Happy Holidays!
