High school sweet­hearts

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - VALENTINE'S DAY -

Some­one had left a $50 chip on the ta­ble, so Michelle be­ing the in­cred­i­bly hon­est woman that she is, wanted to hand it in to the of­fice. Af­ter I asked her to marry me, she started walk­ing down the stairs to re­turn it and took a tum­ble down the stairs. She was wor­ried she had bro­ken or bent her ring. I think the se­cret to a long and happy mar­riage is com­mu­ni­ca­tion. You have to be open and hon­est, no mat­ter what it is about. I think for Valen­tine’s Day we will prob­a­bly all go out for a fam­ily din­ner. I was stand­ing out­side my class­room when I no­ticed Justin walk by with his friend. It was the first time any­one had done a dou­ble look at me. No one had ever re­ally taken no­tice of me be­fore. I was used to guys look­ing at my friends. We had maths c l a s s to­gether and we used to pass notes to each other, which I still have some­where. He used to buy me a sin­gle red rose ev­ery week. I kept them all for years. We have al­ways lived and worked to­gether, we have the same tastes and we are al­ways on the same paths. I re­ally can’t imagine life any other way. We have a beau­ti­ful fam­ily to­gether and have been mar­ried for 18 years in April.
