Forty-eight Years Later and It is Still Snowing.

December 13, 2017

Today we celebrate our 48th Wedding Anniversary!


December 13, 1969 


How can it be 48 years already? Looking at the above picture we were so young and had so many dreams for the future. Some came true, (we have two great kids, one great daughter-in-law, and six beautiful grandchildren) some went by the wayside because as time went by they became less and less important, (the large house), and one we are living, (traveling in our motor home). All and all it has been a pretty wonderful 48 years which is probably why it has gone by so fast. That is not to say we have not had some rough patches but that would be because we are both independent self-thinking people. What is important is in the end we learned to compromise and still love and respect each other. Not to mention standing firm and together we got through our children's teenage years...:)

It snowed the day we got married and it is snowing today.

Today's Winter Wonderland.

  3. Congratulations on your special Anniversary. Your little saying says it all. Too bad more people don't think that way.
    Hoping the weather gives you a break so you can soon be on your way.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
