33 Years Today

Mr. Wonderful
Where does the time go? We have been at this marriage thing for 33 years and it seems like just yesterday that we were dating. It was a whirlwind romance set in the meat department at the Jewel food store. In less than six months and we were married. When you know what you want, why wait?

Our secrets to a happy marriage? We enjoy the same things, like furniture rearranging, tamale making, separate vacations, taking naps, and going to the dentist together.
Today, we are staying home, having a nice meal (with Mouton Cadet Bordeaux) and a dvd. Such bliss is unsurpassed.

    Happy anniversary to both of you! Isn't it great when two people find each other to love forever. Have a wonderful day.
    (My husband of almost 43 years and I were engaged on our third date, so I subscribe to your "why wait" philosophy!)

  11. Congrats. We just had our 30th this past summer. We take separate vacations too. I think it's an under-utilized secret - LOL.

  25. Good for you too! We're up to 37. Yow! Where does the time go? We're much like you - not the furniture arranging part but we love to do many of the same things. Separate trips? Often as my husband travels for business and I like to head to Houston each year.... I have a friend who has never been apart from her husband. I think that's odd. Absence does make the heart grow fonder and gives you lots to talk about. Happy Day!
