Today my dear husband and I celebrate our 24th Wedding Anniversary. We met two weeks before Christmas in Dec 1983 and were engaged by Feb 12, 1984! Yep, you read that right two months. We married Dec 1,1984. Three kids and 24 years later we are still going strong. Our eldest son is 27 (from hubbys prior marriage) and our daughter is 22 and our youngest son is two months shy of 20. We are now entering the empty nester stage and it's about dang time I tell you.
When we first got married we had one day off a month together for the first 5 years because of our different work schedules. It was a pain yes, but I knew it would not be like that forever and I was right. Always looking into the future I was. Then came the kids, sports, homework and trying to fit time in for the two of you just seems to get put on the back burner. But we always tried to find some time alone and keep in tune with each other and it has paid off because when some marriages fail after the kids grow up, ours is entering the next stage. We enjoy spending our time together. I say we are making up for lost time. If you remember in an older post, I stated that we commute to work together and have lunch together each day. Then we'll come home for dinner and a movie usually, actually, only sometimes, since I took up blogging......hahaha. A few years ago we bought a Harley and are having a blast riding the country roads and taking trips with our friends. Well, here's to another 24 years!
Our wedding song was "Just You and I" by Eddie Rabbitt and Crystal Gayle. We wanted a song that would last through the ages and it has worked for us! (takes a minute to load up so be patient)
