2. Our first date was on May 11, 1995. The next day, he came to a family party. After meeting him, my grandmother embarrassed the daylights out of my by saying I should marry him. Gram must have had inside information -- May 11 was her wedding anniversary.
4. Neal's mom is a convert to Catholicism from Judaism. When we decided on a wedding date, we originally wanted to get married in September 1997. Unfortunately, my church was booked every Saturday, unless we wanted a 10 am wedding. We definitely wanted late afternoon (his family was coming from about an hour away), so we pushed it back to October 11. It wasn't until about three months before the wedding that I realized we had chosen the afternoon of Yom Kippur to get married. His family loves him...we had quite a few Jewish relatives attend the Mass.
5. We both love theater, especially musicals. Sometimes we even converse in song lyrics. Although we didn't take the class together, we both took the same Theater class. We're also both big Billy Joel fans. Someday, we'll make it to a concert and he'll play our wedding dance song, "To Make You Feel My Love."
Happy anniversary, honey! I love you!
