I know the cropping is crazy on this photo but I always try something new when I grab this famous look.   I met Jeff in college about a month after I got there.  The first time I ever spoke to him I was sitting at the table in the cafeteria having breakfast with a friend of mine and he was way on the other end of this long table.  He knew my friend and came sliding down to say hi to her and introduced himself.  He told story after story and I didn’t stop laughing when I first met him.  We left the cafeteria together and spent the entire day talking and laughing until dinner.  When I returned to my room that evening I knew something special had happened and I knew somehow this crazy, funny man would be part of my life forever...

Four years later we got married.  I was raised out west he was raised out east and we met in the middle of the country.  When we got married we never guessed our life together would be filled with many times where laughter would be a tough choice.  We have been married now for 18 years and I must say it is his funny ways that make me laugh still.  He comes from a large family and he is a middle kid (just like me) and when he gets together with his brothers I really laugh.  We went to college with his younger brother, who should be his twin, and when they get together it is my favorite time because no one makes Jeff laugh more than his two brothers.  I actually feel for his mother knowing her home must have lost a lot of laughter when her sons moved away.  Happy kids, a happy family, the ability to laugh together is a TREASURE!
