Our Wedding Anniversary :)

Wowww ...it's hard to believe that Mr SeaSpray and I are married for 36 years today. 36 years! And we dated 3 years to the month before that. So we've been together as a couple for 39 tears. I used to think people were old when they hit 25 years. Needless to say ...I definitely do not think that at all anymore. Interesting how perspectives change.

Did I ever tell you how we met? Hmmm ...maybe I will do that when I come back later. And maybe I will put up another picture ...what I looked like when he met me. I don't want to repeat the story. I feel like I told it, but I checked all the Octobers ...although QUICKLY and I don't think I wrote about an anniversary. I will double check later to be sure I am not duplicating something ...although I know there are new readers too.
***Update - Actually I did write about it last year and put pics up. HERE is the link. And I will save the "How we met" post for another time. :)

36 years ago right now, we were at our wedding reception. Later ...someone drove us down to Newark for the night so that we could fly down to Paradise Island, Bahamas in the morning. I always like to think of what we were doing at "this time" on the special dates ...and then I like to think about how there is no way we could know what we would be doing in the present on those dates. Interesting thoughts to ponder. :)

I've been running around a lot today ...beginning with babysitting early in the morning at son and d-i-l's. It will be near miraculous if I don't catch a cold because both babies have one and there is just no way I wouldn't be cuddling with them. Taking more supplements. :)

I came in to find a card and flowers on the counter. I Had other errands ...squeezed in baking a chocolate cake (Choc icing/chock cake - his favorite :) for Mr SeaSpray and then this post. Now back out door while it's cooling.

We will be celebrating our anniversary on the weekend. :)

Happy 36th Anniversary to you and your hubby. You have come a long way since you first met. It is a testament to your mutual love and understanding that your relationship survived those 36 long years in a country where divorces and separations are so common. May you be able to celebrate many more anniversaries. Just always keep God at the center of your relationship and you can never go wrong. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
