our wedding was held on a sunny summer afternoon
nearly 200 people filled the church pews to witness our vows
an assortment of family and friends.
We were so young!
I love this image of us under the rose arbor starting our life together.
a future that would take shape
all of which have contributed to make us the couple that we are today.
There are no secrets to our long marriage.
I've thought about it and can not put my finger on any one thing
although family has always been very important to both if us...
I think it is a combination of luck and respect for each other
and growing up together sharing the good and the bad which has continued to strengthen our bond.
We have made time for each other at least part of every day for the past 39 years...
we have been free to persue hobbies and have other interests which we can discuss together.
Date night, usually a lunch or dinner out once a week
working together on refurbishing our home and garden
has certainly gone a long way to keeping us connected and keen.
Life is never dull or tedious
we have so many things that we want to accomplish
and that list seems to grow longer each day!
Saying I love you
never gets old.
I look at this heart rock
and feel it is a symbol of a solid and lasting love
one to aspire to...
Happy Anniversary Mr. HB
Looking forward to another great year as your partner in life!
