It's been 24 years - Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! I JUST LOVE VALENTINES DAY! You see it is a very special day in our house. A romantic day yes - Hubby's Birthday and it is our Wedding Anniversary!

Hubby wasn't great with remembering dates, and well.. we decided that it would be special to marry on Valentines Day - So 24 years ago today we were married.

I would love to say it was the best day of my life - but really it was just the start of many many best days. He is my other 1/2 and my best friend. We have been talking recently how much closer we are now than ever before. Maybe it was the accident that made us realize how special things are, maybe we are just happy in our settled ways - whatever I do thank God each day that this stubborn hard headed handsome man was sent to me - and that I was smart enough at that young age to know that he was the one for me. Yes I was young... only 19 when we married!! YIKES!

How mushy was that? LOL

Now want a really hard laugh?

How about that 1987 wedding photo? OH my can't believe I am going to show this! It really is a horrible photo, we didn't have a "professional" photographer... a friend took our photos for us.

Shaking head here.. AAHHH   I was so HOT and sweaty!! I was the first to use the churches new bridal room... and the first to discover that they forgot to put in air vents! Make up was sweaty and my hair fell.. but the important thing is that we were married and have lived happily ever after right?

Hope you enjoy your Valentines Day - we do the same thing each year to celebrate, yes.. very romantic... we go to the stock show and rodeo for the donkey and mule shows!!! Wouldn't that be what you do for romance? LOL ok that is what we do during the day, then we go out for a nice romantic dinner on the way home.

Have a wonderful day - me.. Donkey Days and my Hubby = a great day!
HUGS and

Michelle it sounds like you have an awesome Valentines/anniversary day planned. I think the wedding photo is nice and it doesn't show all the stress you were under! It is the things gone awry you remember and if everything was perfect it would make for such a boring day! Thanks for sharing. Vickie
