20th Anniversary of meeting celebration - Four Seasons Orlando

Today is the 20th anniversary of the day Andrea and I met at college. To celebrate, we went to Orlando and relaxed at the Four Seasons resort. We ate dinner out at "Chef Art Smith's Homecomin'" in Disney Springs on Saturday night and enjoyed the amenities and the comfortable hotel. It was nice timing too since the US Open was on TV so we had some nice entertainment in the evenings.

I posted the following to Facebook, so I thought I'd include it here as well.

Twenty years ago today, Thursday September 3rd 1998, I was in my second week of college at SMSU and I met someone that changed my life forever. My roommate had a classmate from high school named Andrea Anders, and she met up with us to go to Jordan's Creek to go dancing. I didn't pay a lot of attention to her at first since we were in a big group, but after I caught her pinching my butt on the dancefloor, she had my full and undivided attention. We've been inseparable ever since and I'm forever thankful of the random series of events, dorm room assignments, and fate that brought us together that night. We've grown up together, graduated college, started a family, traveled the world, and have had so many adventures the past twenty years. We celebrate our wedding anniversary on June 18th, but September 3rd was the anniversary that we celebrated first and always will hold a special place in my heart. 

Andrea, you are my best friend and my soulmate. With you in my life I'm never lonely, always loved, and forever grateful that we've stuck together through everything. I hope our next twenty years together are as fun, blessed, and happy as our first. You are my true love!
