A peek into an old scrapbook reminds hubby and I of our joyful beginning
as husband and wife thirty years ago today. Thirty years!!
(No digital photos back in 1989.)
My handmade wedding dress, vowing to be "Together Forever"...we sat and chuckled over breakfast as we flipped in reflection through this old scrapbook. We found ourselves discussing how lucky we feel to have grown-up together, amazed at how much we've accomplished and conquered, grateful that our marriage only grew stronger as we've traveled this so-called journey of life together.
And oh how I still remember the joy I felt during this very moment pictured below
as we walked down the isle after our wedding ceremony...as Mr. and Mrs.
And shoot, he can still surprise me with flowers that bring those same tears of joy to my eyes.
Of all the wishes I had as a little girl, I'm just so very, very grateful that the one of my being married to my very best friend is the one that came true! We've overcome tough hardships including cancer, depression, and most currently Angioedema. We've celebrated as we've built a successful life and shared the joy of becoming grandparents. I'm just so humbled to be HIS wife. I seriously can do anything with this guy by my side as he makes me the best me I can be. He always makes me smile. He makes me laugh. I'm the lucky one!!
I plan to keep these right on my desk to enjoy as I also relish in everyone's mouth drop
expression when I answer: "How long have we've been married" . LOL!
When asked how we did it, I share how we started out and continue to be best friends and communication has been key in our marriage over the past thirty years. We're grounded and simple even in these modern times of technology and social media. We continue to have weekly dates and enjoy a simple, drama free life together. We like, care, listen and support each other. We have fun. We hope to inspire others by our example and I truly thank you for stopping by and sharing in our celebration.
