42 Years And Counting

We are celebrating our wedding anniversary this week. The years rack up pretty quickly when you are enjoying life. I could swear that it has only been twenty-something years since we walked down that aisle on a hot August evening in 1973, but the calendar doesn't lie.

I was only nineteen, but apparently we chose well and the marriage took. Naturally there have been ups and downs along the way, several moves, three different careers for me and one for him. Adventures, fun, laughter, and love have been the best parts of our journey. Now we're retired and life is better than ever. 

Happy Anniversary, sweetie!

They say we're young and we don't know
We won't find out until we grow
Well I don't know if all that's true
'Cause you got me, and baby I got you

I Got You Babe, Sonny & Cher, 1965
written by Sonny Bono

I can't see me loving nobody
But you for all my life
When you're with me, baby
The skies will be blue for all my life
