My wife and I grew up in a small town in the middle of the Corn Belt.
We met when the two of us were in the ninth grade. We dated all through high school and went to the senior prom together. I went to work at my dad’s farm and my girlfriend and I decided to get married. We bought a mobile home and put it on the back two acres of my parents property. We had three kids in five years. My wife and I enjoyed our life and we settled into a daily routine. For our 10-year anniversary, I wanted to do something special. I saved for an entire year so my wife and I could go to the beach. We had never seen the coast, sand, or waves. We had a late 30 minutes from the farm, but it was barely big enough for a canoe or a kayak. My wife always dreamed of going to the beach and I thought it was the perfect surprise for our 10-year anniversary. While we were on vacation, we did a lot of fun, interesting, and exciting activities. One thing the two of us tried was smoking recreational marijuana. Neither one of us had ever used recreational marijuana in the past, but they had several delivery services close to the hotel and it was easy and discreet to order recreational marijuana supplies and have them delivered right to our hotel room. I thought it might be fun to try recreational marijuana and my wife agreed. That was one fun night that I will never forget.
