Tomorrow Frank & I will celebrate our wedding anniversary. Nine years ago, I married my best friend. We met @ work, (car dealership) and became friends right away. I always knew he was "sweet" on me, but I never paid it any attention. Frank left the car dealership and started another job. He drove trucks for a living. I stayed and worked in the accounting office. A couple of years later he came back to work. Our friendship picked up right where it at had left off - as if he had never been gone. There was constant laughter between us. He was my "friend". My boss asked me for my phone number (I had just moved to a new apartment). A few minutes later, I see Frank is calling my desk. I answer the phone to hear "Are you serious?". I am stunned. I had no idea what he was talking about - then, my boss, throws down a duplicate copy of my phone number. There was also a note that was asking him if he wanted to go hang out sometime! I though I was going to DIE! My boss was laughing so hard she was in tears! In shock - I said "Sure -Why not?" So we arranged for him to pick me up later that evening. We went out and had a few beers and shot some pool. He opened the car door me and everything! When he dropped me off, it was awkward. Frank was my friend - and next thing I knew my friend was kissing me good night~ :0) Oh boy... did the love bug bite! Two years later we were married @ the Little Log Wedding Chapel in Gatlinburg Tennessee. We had a quiet ceremony with only my Mom, Dad, and sister, his Mom Rebbecca, and our best friends (still to this day) Matt & Kim. That was it! It was wonderful.
I think back over that past nine years and it seems like just yesterday we started our adventure. We have built a great life together. I hope the "rest" of my life will be as good as the past nine years have been. He is still my best friend.
