1: My dear husband, This book is only a small glimpse of memories, good times, and special moments that we have shared from the moment we met until today, our one year anniversary. God has given us each other as a gift, and I treasure every day that He allows us to be together. This first year of marriage has gone by so fast. There are days I wish time could stand still so we could spend one more second in a hug, a kiss, or a smile. I love you, Parkie July 1, 2012
6: H O W W E M E T | We met (for the second time) at Manor Care, North Hills, in April of 2007. Mike was a Case Manager at the time; Tricia was a mobile Speech-Language Pathologist. Remembering each other from previously working at the Manor Care facility in Monroeville, they struck up a friendship. Often giving each other advice about dating! | We never had a planned first date. After being friends at work for six months, I went to hang out with Mike and meet his brother and parents at their house in Apollo. Our dates typically consisted of driving around Riggle's Trucking base and the quarries on a golf cart, playing hundreds of dart and foosball games, listening to Kid Rock and Meatloaf over and over (Mike's choice!), and hanging out in the camper parked behind the house. | O U R F I R S T D A T E
7: O U R F I R S T K I S S | Well, I guess we have to be honest on this one! We snuck in a kiss while standing in Mike's office at work. Just a little one! The picture here is the first picture we ever took of us together. Taken in my apartment in the North Hills. | Mike and I would often instant message each other on the computer. I think that was the first time he wrote to me that he loved me. After that, I don't think we have ever missed a day telling each other I Love You. | F I R S T I L O V E Y O U

24: I set out on a narrow way many years ago Hoping I would find true love along the broken road But I got lost a time or two Wiped my brow and kept pushing through I couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you Every long lost dream led me to where you are Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars Pointing me on my way into your loving arms This much I know is true That God blessed the broken road That led me straight to you
25: I think about the years I spent just passing through I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you But you just smile and take my hand You've been there you understand It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true Every long lost dream lead me to where you are Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars Pointing me on my way into your loving arms This much I know is true That God blessed the broken road That led me straight to you Now I'm just rolling home Into my lover's arms This much I know is true That God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you
