That face...

Her face!! I miss it so much! Her smile!

Today is my 47th wedding anniversary. How did the years go by? It is like wind blowing away the memories of my crazy life. I have pics to post but my I pad and phone do not cooperate. So later. 
Ivan gave me a beautiful bouquet of flowers. We went to MQT for dinner at Red Lobster. Very yummy. We both can hardly get our minds around the years. I posted two wedding pics on Facebook. Some of the comments just amaze me! 
We were so young. 21 and 18. I did not feel young though. My mother had been gone since I was 16. Her death took away any vestiges of childhood left to me after dealing with her illness. 
Looking back our married life wasn't perfect. It is hard work living with and making a life with another person. But I must say we both are such positive people. My hubby is such a loving, funny, teasing, giving man. He is so sentimental. We both love our children and grandchildren so much. Our 47 years have been full of joy. We have fun. He is a good friend. I want many more years...

  1. Happy Anniversary, I was married at a young age also. I felt I was mature enough to settle down with the one person I loved. 44years together doesn't seem so bad. Nowadays marriages last only 2-3 years. You're right it was hard at times but we worked at it.

  2. Love that photo of your youngest grand! But she is getting big now too. I too have been spending a lot of time going back to my memories of the farm and all of the crazy things we got to do. My best memories of childhood were on the Lake Station farm and the Farwell farm. I have been telling my kids stories and they love hearing about my childhood.

    As much as I like (well, LOVE!) to tease Ivan, I know he has been a good husband! Yes, I know you guys had ups and downs during your marriage, but the important thing is that you worked on your marriage and stayed together. I still say he is a lucky man to have found you!

    Happy 47th anniversary! Sounds like you two had a wonderful day!

    1. Oh, and if you tell Ivan I said he was a good guy, I will deny it and tell him that you hacked into my system to make it look like I said that!

    2. I remember so much of our childhood. I still base my life on what we learned from each other! We were players!
