Twenty-third year Anniversary

Posted on: January 16, 2014

Wow, seems so crazy to think that we have spent 23 years together, time really does go by so quickly!

When dressing for our date, I decided to humor my husband’s love of my feminine with an edge style! 


After putting this together, I felt great about it for dinner, but panicked about the appropriateness of it for a show at the art center and asked for the advice of my daughter, who told me that she thought it was fine and would be the first to tell me otherwise… still feeling apprehensive, I asked my 18 year old son and his answer showed such insight for a young man of that age… He told me that right now I look awesome in this style, but before too long, I might look like I was trying to hard , so I should enjoy it right now.  I have amazing children!!!!!!


My husband wholeheartedly approved of my outfit and complimented me all night!  Can’t get better than that!

We had a fabulous dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse and afterwards a short walk to the arts center to watch IONA, a Celtic group that was absolutely wonderful!  I love the fiddle and that guy played his heart out tonight!  Their name is pronounced, Eye-own-a and they cleverly had t-shirts that read “IONA T-shirt”  It was fun to think about our upcoming trip to Ireland…. These ten months waiting until that trip are going to whiz by, but for now it sounds so far away…


I was feeling pretty sassy in this outfit and had a lot of fun wearing it!

Dear Readers, Just a quick note to say that 23 years of marriage feels like a huge accomplishment and I would attribute our success to the fact that we both firmly believe this is a marriage of a lifetime and that it takes two good forgivers and the ability to laugh at yourselves.  


I scheduled a long overdue hair appointment  today, but my guy is busy , so have to wait two weeks…


I am grateful for 23 years of marriage and looking forward to our future!

I am grateful to my dear husband for always supporting me in everything from craft shows I did when the kids were young, to my opening a consignment store and even now with my blog.

I am grateful that despite misgivings that he backed down and allowed me to homeschool our youngest and thanked me for it after a year of seeing the difference in our child. 

I am grateful that he has always been a great provider and that I have had the ability to choose to be a stay at home mother.

I am grateful for the fun and laughter he brings to our children and the great love he has for them. 

I am grateful that after all these years that he can still look at me with wonder and amazement.

I am grateful that my husband’s boss took over the calls from the sales team in the field tonight, so that we could have a fabulous night together.
