twenty years ago on a friday night we...


twenty years ago on a friday night we...
 were eighteen years old,
seniors in high school,
best of friends.

twenty years ago on a friday night we...
dressed up fancy,
pinned corsages,
went on this first date.

twenty years ago on a friday night we...
danced,
dined,
made memories with dear friends.

twenty years ago on a friday night we...
held hands,
had our first kiss, 
 fell in love.

twenty years ago on a friday night we...
 went from high school buds,
to high school sweethearts,
 to happily ever after.


while this past friday night,
looked a little different than the one that
brought us together twenty years ago...
potted plants instead of corsages,
food trucks instead of 3-course meals,
barn dancing instead of ballroom dancing,
flip flops instead of heels,
plaid instead of metallic,
friends' band instead of dj jazzy jeff,
bug spray instead of perfume,
the life and love is still just as sweet.

i am so thankful for that friday night TWENTY years ago,
and all the friday nights and days in between that are to come!
