I met my amazing wife in 1993. I first saw her at my vintage boutique and when I did I had to get to know her. At the time I had just moved from Miami to a small town in South Carolina. I was somewhat of a local celebrity with a morning show on the local radio station and a really hot boutique.
I liked to ride my BMW motorcycle or drive my Caddy or Hot Rod Chrysler. I was a real free spirit without a care in the world.
When I first saw Blondie it really was love at first sight. She was a high school Senior who sang opera, played piano, and was a top student. She was tall and blonde and she reminded me of Marilyn Monroe. I worked hard to court her. I took her on many dinner dates and drives and adventures. I gave her many gifts including flowers, chocolates, cards and love notes, clothing, jewelery and anything that would express my love for her. I really enjoyed giving her gifts because she was my love and she made my days brighter and my life better. I would dedicate her special songs on my radio show and I would spend every spare moment I had with her.
Our romance flourished in the early 1990s and into the 2000s. I watched my Blondie go away to Graduate School in California while I stayed behind in Charleston SC to care for my mom and to work on the FM dial at a bunch of radio stations. Before my love went off to California I proposed to her and she accepted. I became an engaged man and my future was all set having the girl of my dreams in my life forever. I wrote my Blondie romantic poetry while she was away at school and I made her scrapbooks and I called her every day and I sent her many letters too. I did my best to make sure that she knew I loved her with all of my heart each day. When she visited town on breaks I would pick her up in a limousine or take her on a horse drawn carriage ride. I loved her and she was the center of my universe…
(To be continued. I will talk about our wedding, our first home together, the birth of our twins and the unraveling of our love affair soon. Stay tuned)
