Our Anniversary

20 years ago today..........................Mike and I danced our first dance to Follow You, Follow Me by Genesis "I will follow you, will you follow me, all the days and nights that were meant to be, I will stay with you, will you stay with me, just one single tear in each passing year there will be............." How I wish that we DID only have "one single tear", but that was not the way it was meant to be.

I named our blog after this song, because it DOES mean so much to me. Much like most typical men, Mike really didn't care much about the planning of our wedding. Don't get me wrong, he was very much a part of it, but he trusted me and agreed with most of my choices. There was only one thing that he REALLY voiced an opinion about, and that was this song. It meant something to him and he wanted our first dance as husband and wife be to Follow You, Follow Me. In fact, I had never really heard the song and when he played it for me - I was pleasantly surprised (Mike was also a Led Zeppelin fan, so I had no idea what to expect). I had wanted another song, so to compromise, we had both songs. We had called to the dance floor four other couples that were married the same year, and we danced with them to the song I wanted.

I don't hear "our song" on the radio very much, but when I do, I am taken back to that day and the happiness and promise we shared. This is not how I would have pictured our lives to be 20 years later, but I am happy that I've had a chance to spend it with Mike.

In sickness and in health, until death do us part..............................

Happy Anniversary Mike - I Love you.

Happy Annivera!! As usual, my card will be late, that doesn't mean we are not thinking of you! I do hear your song on the radio all of the time and think of you both when I do. It was a song with a lot of meaning then, as well as today. All of your 20 years together may not have been as planned, but there is a greater plan for you both. God bless you all! Love, your sister and the whole PA Travis gang.
