Well today is our wedding anniversary. It’s 28 years today of wedded bliss.
Don’t you love the pastel differently colored dresses?? That was not by choice. I was 3 months pregnant and we couldn’t get fabric or dresses in that fast. We ended up finding satin at two different JoAnn fabrics stores so that there enough colors for all the girls. My sister made the peach dress. My sister in law made the flower girl dress. The pink dress was made by the gal wearing it and I think my mom made the other two and made my dress….oh…she catered the meal too. My mom was wonderful.
Theses last 28 years have been wonderful years and honestly, they just keep getting better. When we bought the house and started tackling the remodel, I thought, “oh no…here we go. We’ll be doing lots of disagreeing.” But we haven’t. Luckily we both like what the other likes for most part…or neither or us has a strong enough opinion to rock the boat.
I am so blessed because we really get along wonderfully.
28 years ago it was a horribly hot day…today it’s nice and best yet, most of the kiddos are home and helping us with the house. We always tell them not to buy us anything and we truly mean it…a visit and a little help mean so much more to us. I never dreamed we’d have five kids or that we’d be living in Iowa (both of us were Minnesotans) but I sure am glad that this is the adventure we’re on and that we’re still together.
I am so happy for every day I get to spend with him. I truly hope for a least 28 more.
