Yeppers..29 years..consecutively!!

Today is our 29th anniversary. 



 29 years ago today, we stood in the October winds in Amarillo Texas, at a park at the Baptist Hospital... and we told the world that it could be done... 


 That one could find love even after:

one bad {or starter } marriage each..

4 -  count 'em f.o.u.r kids from one said starter marriage..

2 fathers who probably thought this was a folly..{later to be proven wrong..and willing to admit it}..



no money to speak of...

5 years difference in age {me..I was older...note the word was...he's now older than me..}

no real plan..

but tonzzz of respect, love and a genuine "awe-ness" of each other..

29 years later..we are still in awe..



Love you Mr. B

Congrats on 29 years of wedded bliss. I'm not sure that it was always rosy, but you are a couple I think of as being very happy together. Perfect.

Colleen, you have me in stitches after your comment at my place. I am so not getting floating floors! =}
