Then and Now

This is a non nail polish post, so if it doesn't interest you, feel free to skip- I won't mind!!

This Saturday is my 13th wedding anniversary!  I met Mr. Ski in a bar.  I was his waitress, and he couldn't even remember my name at first!  I went to an after hours bar one night in search of another guy who never showed, and Mr. Ski and I ended up talking the whole time I was there.  He asked me out (which apparently was a bet between him and a friend over who I would go out with) and we started dating....  I realized I was in love with him the noght before my father died- we had only been together 6 months or so, and he dropped everything to get to the hospital to support me!  We got married after a year and a half of dating- I was pregnant at the time, but we were planning on marriage anyway.

Thiteen years and two kids later, we are still together.  It hasn't been easy, and we still have our rough spots, but I can't imagine spending my life with any one else.  I love you, Mr. Ski!!

Here is the then and now part- this picture was taken in 1996, when we had been dating almost a year:


(sorry about the quality- this is pre digital camera days, LOL!)

This is us now:



(and if anyone was wondering, that is Rimmel Zeitgeist on my nails, LOL!)

Until Later,
