Well, in the case of Randy and I, you get to go out to dinner to celebrate 30 wonderful years of marriage. Yep, we made it 29 1\2 years longer then most people would have bet money on. I will share the secret to our long years of wedded bliss.
Are you ready for the magical answer? Can you handle it? Okay, read ahead for the sage words of how we did it.
We put one foot in front of the other everyday.
It is really that simple.
At this point I should show you pictures from the actual wedding. There is a slight problem though. I can tell you where the photo album was located in 4 of our 5 last houses. In this house, no clue. That’s right, Cathy has lost her wedding photos! Yep, sounds like something I would do!
So, as to not disappoint my 5 readers, let’s play a game of pretend, shall we? Here is a picture of what Randy and I look like now. Just take 30 years off me and 10 years off Randy (he hasn’t aged) and put me in a white dress and Randy in a black tux.
And in this game of pretend, let me tell you a quick story. When we first got our wedding photos, I had a hard time looking at them because I was my mom. I looked just like her. So here is a pic of her wedding portrait to help the game:
If I ever locate the wedding album, I will share some pictures. I should also, probably, find my wedding ring. That is a story for another day.
Well, that is it for now. We are going to go to dinner! I think we will get dessert, we might have earned it!
Oh, feel free to give us the secrets of a long marriage. We have 30 more to go.8 Comments
