Today is my 12th Wedding Anniversary!

My husband and I were married on the first day of Spring, March 20th 1999.  My sister was my maid of honor, my cousin was my flower girl and RJ's uncle was his best man.  We both wanted a simple wedding, it was perfect!
We had met through my cousin.  My cousin is nine months older than me, I knew how he was with women and I just assumed that would be how all his friends were with women.  When he told me he wanted me to meet on of his friends, I refused! 

There was NO WAY that I was going to go out with a friend of his! I was visiting my cousin, I lived 2 hours away.  And RJ came over to talk to my cousin about something. I'm very shy and just sat there listening to them talk guy stuff.  A few minutes later, I get up to walk into another room and RJ says, Wow, aren't you stuck-up?  WTH?  I didn't even know him, he didn't know me!  I later learned it's his nature to "mess" with people!

The very next day a blue Toyota pick-up pulls up into my cousins driveway, it was RJ.  My cousin picks me up, throws me over his shoulder, carries me out to the pickup, throws me in and locks the door.  And RJ drives off!  Isn't that a form of kidnapping?!?!?!

We started dating about a month later, on March 21st, 1997 and we have been together ever since!  If it weren't for the "kidnapping" I might have missed out on so many wonderful things.  I can't imagine my life without him!  He's a wonderful husband and a fantastic daddy.  The kids and I are so lucky to have him.
