30 years ago today, I married the man of my dreams.
*we were high school sweethearts
*We were young and had no idea that it was "tax day"
*it was spring break of my junior year in college
*I had just finished a week of finals
*Kevin worked at the Anamosa Reformatory as a guard.
* He had just finished his AA degree in law enforcement and THEN was told he could never work in law enforcement because he was color blind.
*we had an apartment rented for the summer, but had no idea where we were going from there.
*we were anxiously waiting to see if I had been accepted into PT school at Iowa, Duluth or St. Louis. If none of those accepted me as an undergrad, my plan was to return to Wartburg College and finish my Biology degree and then reapply.
*we had a two day honeymoon in Iowa City (30 miles away) and then returned to spend the rest of spring break moving into the apartment before I went back to school for a month.
*we were young and in love and none of the above things seemed like that big of a deal. :) We'd "figure it out", no worries.
*We did find out two days later that I had been accepted to Iowa, so amid great celebration, we started looking for apartments in Iowa City, where we would live for the next two years.
