49 years!

Today is the 49th Wedding Anniversary for my husband and me.


Sometimes I just can't believe what a big number that is.  Of course, we will be approaching 50 years married next year.  Yikes.  We met in 1967 - so I have known him for 51 years.

We have had our ups and downs - but we are still together - standing side by side - learning to live as two old timers who have changed greatly from the happy couple in that picture - and have created a great family.

An achievement.  

Happy Anniversary to us!

  1. SWEET! Lovely picture, made me smile. Hubby and I are in just a few days and not to far behind you at 46 years. Our time frames are quite similar. I knew him about 4 years prior to that. Thanks for the visit, always appreciated. I usually much more ruthless with shows and books also, you shouldn't have to work to like something; but since I have more leisure than normal, decided to play through.

    1. My first thought when I brought this picture up ... My God - we were too young to be doing that. Age 22! Not so young I guess, but young-ish by today's standards.

    2. Same age we were when we got married 34 years ago, and oh, how sure we were that we were ready! ;-)

  3. Congratulations. 49 years is a long, long time. You got married in June 1969. I was married (the first time in December 1969) I'm blown away that it was that many years ago. What a lovely wedding picture. Do you have big plans??

    1. No, not big plans. We typically downplay celebrations of birthdays and anniversaries for each other. And it has been a tough month - tomorrow's post will explain.

    1. Thanks. Enjoying the pictures on your blog of the home you are building. What a joy it must be to design and build your home from the ground up - like you did. I have heard horror stories about doing that but you guys seem to be enjoying it.

    1. Thanks. It was taken by a guest. Our professional photos got messed up. Another long story for another time.

    1. You know, I never saw the gloves until you mentioned them. That was my mom.
