Happy Anniversary to Us!


It's our Anniversary today...a special day where we ponder how amazing it is that after knowing each other for 2 weeks we got engaged...and then 3+ months later became Mr. & Mrs.  It always blows me away when I think about it...our poor parents must have been beside themselves, LOL.  But, here we are 42 years later.  I always said it was luck but G...he said he knew all the time what he was choosing...LOL...and he still chose me.

It is not lost on me...the miracle of 2 head strong individuals who have co-existed under one roof.  I think relationships take a lot of grace, respect and being ok with not winning once in a while because it surely is a roller coaster ride of highs and lows.  

Anyhoo...today we are taking Penny up into the woods for Happy Hour and our Anniversary dinner.  I am sure it will be the best table in town!

  1. Happy Anniversary Anna & G. I had 51 years when my husband passed away suddenly in 2010. So cherish every day you and G have together no matter how many Hi's and Low's you have, that is what Life is all about anyway. Love to you both.

  2. Happy Anniversary! You have to admit that is a match made in heaven if you knew right away that you were to be together! We just celebrated our 43rd anniversary! We met when I was 16, him 19 and married when I was 18. No one at first ever thought it would last since we were so young but we proved them wrong! Wishing the two of you many more!

  5. I can tell you both know what it takes.......this married life. We just celebrated 55 years. I guess, we too,know. Enjoy your celebration together. Once again, I have to tell you that finding you and G on the web has added a touch of "sparkle and inspiration" to my life. I share you two with my husband all the time.
    When I say Anna and G he no longer says, "who?". Love to you both on this special day.

  25. Happy Anniversary. And, thanks for describing my 41 year marriage to a "T"! They say opposites attract, but my husband and I are so similar, it is a miracle that we have survived all these years together. I (we) feel lucky!
