Happy Rolled Taco Night~ 22 Years Later!

I wrote this 2 years ago on our "20 year anniversary of meeting each other" We have never celebrated this day, except to take note..Oh yeah, we met on this day....but it's still so precious to me..that night, meeting him, talking all night and hanging out on the beach by his dorm..the same dorm we just moved our son into this fall..HOW CAN THAT BE!! Time is fleeting...but I have loved every single minute of it! 
I met my husband twenty years ago today. We had been at college a total of two weeks! There was an "all you can eat rolled taco night" happening on campus and you can bet there would be no way this chubby freshman was going to miss that! When I walked in with my roommates, we immediately gravitated to the taco bar and without realizing it, cut in front of a group of the cutest guys I had ever seen. I quickly noticed the "cute guy in the red hat"......our story began that night and we rarely spent a day apart during our college years. We were married two years after meeting and it has been pure bliss since then......throw in the blood, sweat and tears, but other than that, pure bliss!
Darren has a different version of what really happened at that "rolled taco night" ....something about I had guacamole on my face...and that's what made him "notice" me?? Yeah, whatever...he still asked me to go walk on the beach with him that night! ; )
Where did twenty years go?
I love that within weeks of meeting you, I wanted to keep you!

I love that our story started in my favorite city , San Diego, where dreams come true!

I love that our story really started on the beach, late that night, on Oct. 7, 1988!

I love that our story started when we were only 18!

I love that our story began with many nights in that small prayer chapel on campus,

I love the story that we have made together, a story of God’s grace and faithfulness!

I love that God knew we would be a perfect fit.

I love God knew that you would be everything I needed and wanted.....you still amaze me, sweep me off my feet and always make me come back wanting more ; )
I love that you are my partner, my best friend, my strength, my hero!
I love that our story is not over and still being written!

Yes, you had me the moment you let me cut in front of you at rolled taco night on campus.
