Wordful Wednesday

February 12, 1988. John had just flew in from Keesler AFB, Mississippi to meet his new daughter. He was there attending Air Traffic Control school which kept him from being able to be home for Megan's birth. Meg was 8 days old. I was 16 and John was 18 in this photo.
Ironically, this is the same airport where John now controls traffic every day.

What a beautiful picture! What a trip! I had no idea that you were such a young momma yourself!!! It makes sense though - you look WAY too young to have girls in college!!! How old were you when you had Tori?? Seriously, you have no idea how much you and your hubs inspire me!!
