Here we are a few years back
snapped out front of the Humble Bungalow
just before we went out for our anniversay dinner.

I commented on mette's blog about some thoughts of marriage and wonder how it is that we have managed to be a couple for so long.
I met Mr. HB when I was 15...I'm 55 now.
There must be a great deal of luck involved
I know that we have changed and morphed into the people we are today
as we were starry eyed lovers innocent and green when we walked down the aisle of that church so many years ago.
We went from our family homes into the arms of each other
partners in life, for life
and that was the unwritten attitude that I embraced
I never ever thought that marriage would be hard work
(I was surprised, a little, I was so naive)
I never imagined that we would divorce
I don't know why
I just felt that we would be together forever
maybe just that abiding belief was enough
life and events have shaped us and made us grow closer
we have adapted
we have had differences
there have been times when I wanted to walk away
we have worked out the kinks
one never can sit back and take it for granted
Many of these anniversaries have been celebrated with a romantic dinner.
We celebrated this year, with lovely daughter and we watched The Batchelorette!
She cooked her delicious Thai curry with chicken and rice...a bottle of bubbly made an appearance and soon disappeared!
at the risk of sounding sappy...
I do feel very blessed
I am grateful
What things are important for a long and happy marriage?
I feel they must be different for every couple
what rings true for you?
