A First in 27 Years

Hubby and I have been married 27 years today.


Cute..right??

Today this day I still wonder how either of us ever kept our white clothes clean.

We went out for supper tonight and we both commented that in 27 years today is the first day it wasn’t overwhelmingly hot.  I remember one year it was so hot on our anniversary that we went to WalMart and decided to treat ourselves with a window air conditioner one to find there were none.  One year we drove and drove and drove around to local stops just to stay in the car where there was air conditioning.  NEVER have we ever thought we could start a campfire or even wear a jacket on our anniversary.  This year, we surely could.

It just goes to show that even after 27 years things can still change.  One thing that doesn’t change is that I am very happy to still be married.

    Happy Anniversary Jo! That’s quite an accomplishment in this day and age!!! You both look very happy, although he looks like he is very much looking forward to getting out of that suit!

    Happy Anniversary!! The cooler weather is a great anniversary gift….I’m enjoying it, at least. Had to pull a quilt over myself very early this morning.

    Congratulations on 27 years of marriage. Last Friday was our 26th anniversary. It’s so funny looking at your wedding photo, it could be our wedding photo. My husband wore a white tux also, only the neck of my dress was higher than yours, it must have been the style. I thought about us staying clean our whole wedding day. I hope you both had a wonderful anniversary. ;-> Toni Anne

    Congratulations! It is such fun following your blog and reading about your family. Twenty seven years is a great mile stone. It makes you wonder what happened to all those days. Best wishes for many more!

    How quickly they pass. We celebrated 32 last month. Where did the time go? Oh I know, having babies, chasing toddlers, cooking meals, laughing, rushing out the door to some PTA meeting, church, school play, graduations…
    Hasn’t it been exciting? I know our life has been. I wouldn’t live it over again, but I wouldn’t change a thing!
    Congratulations!! Many more to come I hope.
