34 Years Of Bliss?

1974
Well, I just don't write many stories because I'm not a good writer, but here goes. If you have read my blog about me you know I have been with my husband since birth, well it feels that way. We met in the 7th grade and you know how you pass notes and say I like you and you just hope you get one back that says, I like you too. That's how it all started. Oh my goodness he was a hunka hunka gorgeous 12 year old. At least I thought so.


Time went by and we had our moments like when I told a girl his middle name and he broke up with me. I cried my eyes out and one time we played spin the bottle at one of those parties, without the other one there, that wasn't to good either. But we made it. Ya know back then those were some really big problems.

I made our going away outfits. That was back when pants had cuffs on them and hubby and I didn't want anyone to know we just got married, so I took off my corsage, we went and washed the car and all of that good stuff. We stepped out of our little Toyota and rice fell all out of our cuffs at the gas station and all of these cowboys started hooting and howling. That was embarrassing.

Then we had 2 great kids, I could have traded them in a couple of times, but those are some stories by themselves. I love them to death and they make me proud. Don't they look like they could cause a little trouble.




Anyway our anniversary is June 22 and I'm late getting this posted because we were at our daughters house helping them. So it's late and my husband is on 12 hour shift at this time, so I kissed him goodnight and wished him many more happy anniversary's. Love that man!!

Bonnie, thanks for visiting my blog and your comments on my teapots. As soon as I clicked on your blog and saw you wedding pic, I thought I was looking at my own! Your dress, your hair, your husband's sideburns lol, I thought it was Paul and me. We got married in 1972 and have 2 kids, a boy and a girl, ages 34 and 31 and beautiful like your kids. And you owned an antique shop. We have lots in common. I'm adding your blog to my favorites!

Bonnie,
Thanks for stopping by my blog for a visit. I can't believe that you also had a George Carlin album and that you live in Texas. I meant to tell you that your children are beautiful. Please stop by anytime. I will be visiting you again as I too get caught up in visiting blogs and reading about all the interesting things people are doing and forget just exactly what it is I am SUPPOSE to be doing.

Et Salut
Kris

This is so funny because it reminds me of my husband and I. We've been married 35 years in August and have know each other since we were little kids. Even your wedding photo reminds me of ours! We also have a boy (24) and a girl (31).

Thanks for visiting my blog!
Catherine
