48 Years

You have got to be kidding!

As of today, Sue and I have been married for 48 years. We get along very well; I do what she tells me, and life is good. In point of fact, I swear that it only seems like 47 years. 😃

As is usually the case, but not always, celebrations will be low key. We will have the kids before and after school, and we will do nothing exotic.

There will be breakfast out; there will be fudge; and, there will be pizza. These are traditions that must not be abandoned.

Since May is our gardening month, we will consider plants and other related items to be our gifts to each other.

I will give her this little token, call it a card of sorts if you will although it is printed on a 13x19" sheet, so it won't be folded, and I don't have an envelope. 😄


It's the little things that make a good life.

And those little things add up to a whole lot of love through all yourbyears together. Happy 💐Anniversary to you both and your plans for the day and of spending time together are what it's all about. And, of course, thise traditions should be followed always, especially when pizza is involved.

AWWWW ... That's a lot more than little things. It's been such a pleasure to share so much of your lives together through your blog, AC. You should write a "How To" book, of course with your wonderful pictures, for the youngsters of today. Maybe they'd see there is a better was to build a relationship than texting from morning to night !

Belated congratulations! My grandfather-in-law said (on the occasion of his 50th wedding anniversary, "Staying married to the same woman for fifty years shows a dreadful lack of imagination." I think it shows you two made good choices.
