Today marks the third year that Honey and I have been together. We met 36 months ago for our first date, which consisted of a viewing of The Interpreter and dinner at Olive Garden. While the food was great, the movie wasn’t that good, but it didn’t matter because it was impossible to concentrate with his leg brushing up against mine. We’ve been practically inseparable ever since.
He is my knight in shining armor, my fairy tale prince, my better half. I don’t know how I got so lucky.
After our Sunday morning service, we loaded up with several of our church friends and carpooled to Giant City State Park in southern Illinois. The weather and season made the drive very enjoyable, but I was amazed at the beauty that seemed to be everywhere inside the park.
We had lunch at the Giant City Lodge, which was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930’s. The meal consisted of excellent fried chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, corn, dumplings, and biscuits. It was divine.
