One hundred seven months ago today Stan and I met for lunch. It was the day we met. We went to lunch and over the low calorie plate at Cypress Inn I began loving the wonderful man that is now my husband. I knew I wanted to continue to see him. It is almost unreal to me to think that we will have soon known each other nine years. I often feel like it has only been a couple of years, and then at others I feel as though Stan has never not been in my life. I suppose that is how it is with love. Time passes quickly. Yet, I almost think of my life of beginning when I met Stan. We have shared many special times and quite a few trips together. Life is taking us on some twists and turns. I can't believe it has been almost nine years since we met. How could that be?
