Our Silver Anniversary

Let me start this special occasion by walking down memory lane. No present and future exist without the past that reminds us when, where and how it all began. So, without further ado, here are the detailed accounts of our love story.

THE FIRST GLANCE
Just like any other boring day of the week, I still found myself sitting on that chair inside that seemingly boring office as well. Someone knocked at the door and before I got there to open it, a guy in a blue shirt entered only to ask me, "Nandyan ba si Amy?" (Is Amy around?) That was a brief glance. The very first time I laid eyes on him. It was 14 February 1994, more than twenty-five years back.

THE COURTSHIP
That short meeting was followed by a few more acquaintances and several talks on the phone. His voice struck me. Actually, that’s one trait I like most about him. He always had a way to surprise me. He often paid unexpected visits. He would come to the office all the way from Cavite where he was assigned, wearing that so familiar camouflage jacket... waited for hours until I finished my work for the day.

THE CARD
After almost two months of constantly dating, I formally accepted him. That was April 8 of the same year. I gave him a card... a card with two diamonds meaning he won over my heart because he got the highest one.

THE TERM OF ENDEARMENT 
Sweetheart...
Honey...
Cutie...
Baby or Babe...
Cupcake, Darling, Sugar pie, Buttercup...

There are a lot more terms of endearment we can use to address our loved ones or describe a person for various reasons. It's our unique way of calling those people dear to us. It's our means of expressing deep affection. But I preferred a unique one for me and my hubby... me as MYE and he as PYE.

THE COUPLE
Some trivia about us:

  • You're All I Need by White Lion is our memorable song not our theme song
  • April 8, 1994, was the day we became BF/GF
  • January 18, 1995, was our Civil Wedding
  • July 8, 1998, was our Church Nuptial (number 8 means infinity)
  • We were born in the same year and month... JUNE 1968. He was on the 23rd and I was on the 29th
  • I am the eldest of 4 and he is the youngest of 4

"Pye and Mye"
This is what I call FATE... God showed us the way to each other and brought us to one place called HOME.

Twenty-five years brought us joy and pain but here we are, keeping our promise of forever despite all the struggles we've been through and the challenges of life we've overcome. We are bonded by love for each other and our faith in God.

Every single day that will pass and every single day that will follow... is always a fresh start.
