- The way we were

Christmas decorations always bring to mind the church where we were wed, which was redolent with pine ...

An old kerosene lamp from my mom's summer house in the Catskills
and a hallway mirror found by my folks at an antique show
bedecked each year with boughs and bells

37 years ago Don and I said a midwinter "I do" ... and this time around we'll mark the occasion by grandparenting for the next ten days (which may cut into my blogging time a bit). I wouldn't have it any other way.

Congratulations to you and Don! Thirty-seven years is most excellent, and what a sweet picture of the two of you. The years do roll by, don't they? Mike and I have a similar history, although when asked how long he has been married, Mike always replies, "Two wonderful years!", implying that the rest have been just so so. I'm still married to him anyway.

Oh but we were young ... and so conventional now that I think about it. Fortunately my daughters gave me a chance to experience a barefoot on the beach wedding and music to dance the night away in the live music capital of the world

I have been pondering this ... we were lucky to meet on a blind date and even though we had some rough patches, all in all the world has been kind to us. So I can't say we worked at keeping love going, but we have never taken it for granted. And that feels very good to me, too.
