Happy Father's Day to my husband Mac. It's not easy to find the words to talk about him without sounding sappy because he's really very special.
We first met when I was 16 and he was 17. I make a joke that I was his stalker, and it's true I looked for him everyday at school, though he had no idea who I was. I asked a mutual friend who he was and hoped I'd get to meet him.
Well I had never believed in love at first sight and in fact had always swore I'd never get married. But obviously someone else had other plans for me because I did fall in love with him as soon as I met him. Not only was he beautiful, he was funny and intelligent. We married a little over 2 years after we met when I was 18 and he was 19 and have been married almost 44 years and the longer we're together the more I know how lucky I am to have him.
This is a picture of him with our daughter April taken in DC this Spring. I'm counting on 44 more Father's Days with him so I can keep telling him how much he means to me.
