I stepped out of the shower this morning with wet hair to the smell of bacon and was met by my wonderful husband on bended knee to a proposal that we spend the next 36 years together. What a wonderful way to start the day in celebration of our 36th anniversary.
Not long after we met at Western Carolina University, this guy (not a breakfast eater) started joining me for breakfast every morning at Dodd Cafeteria because he knew breakfast was my favorite meal of the day and no matter how early my classes, I never missed my bacon, eggs, toast and juice.
And one of the things he promised me when we married was a lifetime of breakfasts. A promise he’s kept by faithfully preparing bacon, sausage, pancakes, waffles, french toast, eggs and other specialties.
So, of course, this morning was no exception with his version of an Egg McMuffin…something we refer to as an Egg McCollum and a glass of OJ.
Tonight we celebrate at Mom and Dad’s Italian Restaurant, a place we’ve enjoyed since my first visit to Ocklawaha. Happy anniversary to the best husband ever…yes, I’m ready for the next 36!
