Each year on this day at 8 p m, Hubby and I look at one another with a little smile. We don’t really need to bother voicing the question any longer, but we do. “Does it feel like we’ve been married (insert number of years here)? The answer is the same, “Yes and no.”
Today the parenthetical number is 27. How the time has flown. Oh there were years that seemed as though they would never end; but those came courtesy of outside forces, making us struggle to get through the days. Sometimes we forget to drink in the joys of the good years as they are happening. Our memories are still good and we take the time to reminisce on them now.

Gosh, weren’t we young back then. We didn’t know a lot about the world, but we were ready to take it on together. And take it on we have. I don’t think we look too much worse for the wear. There is no secret – we face life as a team, always united. We enjoy an inside joke, we play games often – board games, card games, games we make up. No one lets us be on the same team. We respect one another and always try to be kind. Above all else we love one another a little more each day.

I am trying to do the math here, Libby, but you look way too young for the figures I am coming up with. It must be true love does that to you!

Hi Libby, good to see you back from your trip..*VBS* Let me add my congratulations and glass raised in toast to a job being well done! The young 'you and he' look very young, as so many of us were. And the 'older version' merely looks well seasoned..*VBS* You both have done a wonderful job of growing together as you grew up. It's so wonderfully refreshing to read about that. Special hugs, Finn
