Twenty. One. Years!

Superman and I tied the knot, 21 years ago (Apr 8)...
Our knee jerk wedding, turned into a marriage full of miracles and mayhem and medication. :)
Nobody knew we would make it, except us.

6. Our wedding reception and my high school grad were held the same weekend, we attended both.
