A Prairie Love Story


Happy 29th Wedding Anniversary Mom and Dad!


During the 34 years they've been together, my Dad has always bought Flowers 
for my Mom. This morning I found these in the Living Room, waiting for her :)


Living in Saskatoon, they met while my Mom was out for a walk. My Dad was 
driving in his work van, heading to a job site when he spotted her walking past. 
Noticing each other while stopped at a red light, they smiled and said "Hello" 


That night my Mom told her Mom that she "Can't explain why, 
but she has a weird feeling that she just met her future Husband"


A couple days later, they bumped into each other in the Food Court in the Mall. 
My Dad first recognized her and said, "Hi, i'm Larry" ... "Oh, Hi" she replied. 
"We're you the guy I saw the other day that waved to me?" ... "Yes" he proclaimed 
before asking, "Would you like to go grab some lunch?" ... "Sure!" she said smiling


He took her over to the Ritz Hotel (which is now Lululemon) and had Pork Chops


After their random meal, they exchanged numbers and made plans for a next date


And we all know the rest of the story :)
