One of my very favorite things to come out of social media has been the Throwback Thursday phenomenon. I do absolutely love it. I love it because it can be a chance for people to laugh at themselves and be self deprecating – two things that I majorly heart.
That’s why I’m excited to get a chance to get to do it weekly for Jessica Adam’s link up! Post a Throwback pic on your blog, explain it, and link it up!
Ah, to be young and in love and in college and get to go to Disney World.
Y’all, we were ridiculous on this, our first trip together.
We went with my parents and spent the whole time canoodling and giving each other goo goo eyes. Every nook and cranny in the Magic Kingdom will forever be painted in a romantic light in my mind because of this trip.
We had two beds in the hotel room. My parents had one and I had the other. This poor boy slept on the floor. We were so crazy pants about each other that we fell asleep each night holding hands. I had to sleep half off the bed to reach my hand down to his.
And yes, a gentleman did get on to us on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride for smooching. And one probably should have gotten on to us on The People Mover. That incident on Splash Mountain was totally not our fault though! I tripped and he caught me!
Two years later we’d be married.
The next two years we’d spend inadvertently making each other pretty miserable. Workaholic and Emotionally Immature really don’t mix well for some reason. Who’d have thought that, right?
We managed to get our act together – he was willing to work on it and so was I – and have now been happily (well, mostly happily) married for fourteen years.
I’m thinking about Disney World for our fifteenth anniversary.
