At 12:34, I'm sitting down to grade essays after having a quick lunch with Allison. We mark February 10 as our "dating anniversary." Twenty years ago today was a Saturday. We drove to Wrightsville Beach and back that day. We spent the day talking in the car, we ate at a Mexican restaurant, and we walked on the beach before heading back to Charlotte. Today I'm especially thankful for 20 years of memories with my best friend and true partner in every sense.
