DAY 6: My Best Friend, Then Boyfriend, Now Husband, Kevin Potter
Kevin and I first met when I was just sweet sixteen. My mom rented the other side of the cottage he and the real Harry Potter lived in, so we could spend a week on Lake Ontario. Our lives were never the same. Kevin became friends with my mom, sisters, and me. None of us realized our lives would never be the same.
|This is one of the earliest photos I have of Kevin|
taken just days after we'd first met him.
|Kevin has been to all three of my graduations: high school,|
undergraduate, and graduate. This was taken at the 3rd in the trilogy.
|My biker babe looking pretty bad-ass on his 1987 |
white Honda Interceptor.
|I'm hardly the adventuresome type, but riding a motorcycle|
isn't the only wild and crazy thing I've done under his influence.
The first of these incidents occurred before we began dating
when I volunteered to try water-skiing while Kevin drove the boat. Oh, and I also moved his car a couple times.
|Future's so bright he's gotta wear shades. Kevin tends to|
be happiest when we're back in his hometown of Rochester, NY.
I took this photo of him on one of our many trips to Ontario
Beach Park, where we spent a great deal of time when
we were just becoming friends and dating.
|Kevin and I had way too much fun one|
Halloween dressing up as Men in Black
characters. He even went so far as to
spray paint a water gun for a prop.
|One of the things I love about Kevin is that he takes great|
joy in spending time with cute little ones, particularly those
with whom he has had to share me for a number of years.
Here Kevin's holding our Goddaughters, the twins,
the two youngest of the three silly sisters for whom I nannied.
Whenever he arrives, they shout: "IT'S KEVIN!"
|Kevin has been tremendously supportive of my writing and|
photography endeavors. We look pretty cute together, huh?
|Kevin rejoicing over birthday decorations this summer on|
his birthday last July. His sister's comment about the
"birthday boobs" colored everything.
|Kevin was not pleased to find out that I would be getting dressed|
up to renew wedding vows in celebration of our 12th anniversary
because it would mean he'd have to wear a suit. Sometimes,
I can't dress him up or take him out and others,
I can be rather persuasive.
