Happy Anniversary





Happy Anniversary to my favorite guy. We have been married 39 years today and the wedding was on a Saturday at 10 am. Nothing planned but a quiet evening at home. The photos above are just before we married, at our wedding, and about 6 months ago.

We met in high school and dated for around 4 years. I have never regretted our marriage or come across anyone else that I thought would have been a better match.

We are pretty much total opposites but have blended as the years go by. I have always been an avid television watcher, and now he is. I was a dog lover, he was a cat lover. Now we both like cats but love dogs. He likes to go camping and do the outdoorsy thing, and I hate it. I have always said "why would I leave a perfectly good house with a tv, dishwasher, and bathroom to go rough it?" But I have no problem with him going with his buddies and leaving me home. I told him after my first camping trip that he could go all he wants, just don't make me go again.

Most of the time we aren't even in the same room. I am usually in my computer/art room and he is usually in front of the tv in the living room. We are not that far away so we usually yell back and forth if we have something to say. We have been known to call the other on our cell phones or send notes by the dog. But to us it is comfortable and we are happy.

So here's to at least 39 more years.

There's a comfort in a relationship that's had time to mellow. Good for you guys for sticking together over the years. That's something to celebrate!
