- It was 40 years ago today ...

40 years ... 2080 weeks ... 14570 days ... a blink of the eye.

Oh but we were young on October 5, 1974, which I wrote about here. But some photos recently came to light that flesh out the story ...

A yearbook photo taken a few hours before our first date ...


Yorktown beach before I went home to New York for the summer in 1975 ...


And our last "date" after our wedding rehearsal on December 29, 1977 ...

i think it's the greatest thing to have a long long long standing love, a real life partner. Things
didn't turn out that way for me, but i like it when i see it. A lot. Blessings

40 years, that is well and truly 'something' a life shared; hope the husband and I will get there as well

Truly the blink of an eye ... 40 years have also brought grandchildren, which are the sweetest gift of time
