1. Who was your first love?
I’ve been in love many times. I truly believe that’s possible. My first, however, was Ricky. He lived next door and we were five years old. I was excited when he proposed marriage. My heart was soon broken when I found out that he’d made the same proposal to my twin sister. Believe it or not, this has happened a few times in our lives.

2. Tell me about your first date (ever).
I was twelve years old the first time I went out with my steady boyfriend John. That may seem young, but we were driven by his dad, went to the skating rink, where his mom worked, and accompanied by his three younger brothers. No kisses but lots of handholding.

3. What was your first date with your significant other?
My husband Lee and my first date was a play-date, literally. We were each single parents of two preschoolers. His daughter was 4 and his son was 2. My daughter was 3 and my son was 2. Lee cooked a fried chicken dinner for all of us. I was impressed by his tidy housekeeping, capable parenting skills, and sweet disposition. That was thirty-two years ago.

More about Sandra:
I live in a small town outside of Gainesville, Florida, with my husband. Our combined four children are all grown and live in Florida as well. They’ve given us seven beautiful granddaughters, no grandsons, which hardly seems fair. I love to read, write, play games and watch football.


  1. Thanks for having me at your blog Rebecca. I love reading about other people's firsts. You can often find inspiration in those type stories. It was fun to tell about my own firsts too.

  2. Wow! Sandra. Tidy hosuekeeping? May I have your Lee, please? My hubby cooks, but his study is a disaster!!! With a large D...

    1. Sorry Nancy, the man is all mine. He does yard work and fixes cars too. Just bragging ;)

  3. How you met your hubby is so SWEET!!!! So nice to know more about you.

  4. Thanks Mia. He's still as sweet as the day I met him.

  5. Hey Sandra--thanks so much for coming on today! I love how you met your hubby. He sounds like a keeper. :)

    1. The man still takes my breath away, and that's saying something for people our age. Have hope, love lasts. Thanks again, Rebecca and good luck.
