29 Years of Happy ...

... and Counting!!! Today is our 29th wedding anniversary! (Which is kinda remarkable, in and of itself, since I am ONLY 27!!)!!! My husband and I had our very first date on March 9, 1984, and were married almost EXACTLY one year later on March 8, 1985. That first date was his brother, Rob's birthday ... and my soon-to-be-husband taught me how to ski (how BRAVE was I for even TRYING that on a first date??) ... and Rob broke his hand (he and a couple of his buddies also came on our first date ... which was oh-so-fun!)!! And I was a big ol' wet, frizzy (think 80's-perm-run-amok style), freezy mess by the time we were finished (my husband says I looked adorable ... but whatever ... which is probably one of the reasons I love him still!)!

So this page is to celebrate our anniversary (I was laughing at my BIG hair in the "then" photo ... when I realized my hair isn't a whole lot smaller NOW!)!! I am so blessed and grateful for having spent so much of my life thus far with my best friend ... he still makes me laugh (in fact, this morning he brought me a box full of yummy donuts and said, "Don't worry about eating as many of these as you want ... they are made with all REAL ingredients!"). He is thoughtful, kind, hard-working, fun, happy, adventurous, a great father ... who could ask for anything more?? (Ok ... he DOESN'T sing ... and I mean not EVEN with the RADIO ... which was one of the things on my "requirement" list that I had written as a teenager for "prospective future husbands" ... but I am ok with that ... he CAN whistle!)!

Here's to you, babe ... and an eternity of togetherness ahead of us. Love you! From Millan.Net
