So, Robert and I used to live in Los Angeles. Had we stayed there, I don't know that we would have gotten married. I mean, Cali is a common law and community property State - and we knew we weren't going to have kids, so why bother, right? But, we couldn't take the "life" anymore and decided to head East - to Richmond, where one of my brothers lives. So of course, my Catholic guilt combined with moving to what I considered the Bible belt, prompted us to run off to Vegas. We were married on September 25, 1999 - and drove across the country the following Friday with our stuff and my cat Grimmy and landed in Richmond. This past Friday we drove to the Outer Banks to party and relax for 4 days. I LOVE the OBX. My family has been vacationing there for 25 years - and its the last place my entire family vacationed together before my Dad passed away. So I have very sentimental feelings for it.
But without further ado...here is the wonderful man I married sitting in some big honkin' chair in Manteo! (And for those of you who don't know Robert, he's 6 ' 4" and about 230 lbs., so this chair is huge!)
It was raining in Virginia when we left - but once we got to Chesapeake we didn't see any rain again until Saturday night - which, hey, by 9:00 p.m., we were headed back to the condo. It was overcast and low 70's on Friday which was perfect for us!!!!
Saturday was partly sunny but really windy (duh, its the OBX) so thats when we headed over to Manteo and walked around. By Sunday, it was rockin'! We probably met every local in town - we tend to attract the alcoholics and the drug pushers, but hey, whatta ya gonna do! Or really, what does that say about the way we look that we would attract those kinds of people, ha,ha. But we had a great time - we're thankful that after 10 years of marriage and being together for 15 years, we still enjoy each others company and we are still madly in love.
