51 years ago today I met my new neighbor

I was just the right amount of brave to ask her out for a date. She surprised the heck out of me and said, “sure!”

We started by being friends
Even my Dad smiled on this day. (That was his version of exhilaration.)
Five years later we were going strong
35 years later it was still crazy love
50 years later it is still an exciting adventure every day
She is still full of surprises
I still say the same thing every night that I said 51 years ago: “Can I see you tomorrow?”
