24 And So Much More


Just Us

Today marks twenty four years married for me and the G-man. I truly don't know where the time goes.

It seems like just yesterday. OK, not yesterday. How about last week? OK, not last week, but certainly last year. OK, maybe not last year, but it definitely doesn't seem like 24 years ago that we walked down the aisle. It really doesn't.

It looks like a long time ago, but it doesn't seem like it.

Here we are....newlyweds. G-man makes it look like a robbed the cradle, but I didn't.


I show you these two pictures to prove that I've been a crafty gal for a long time. I made my own headpiece which had beautiful opalescent beads on the front (that matched the sequins on the bodice of my gown) and a seriously 80s floral spray on the side.



I also spray painted the hats my maid of honor Tina and bridesmaid Robin wore. I'm not kidding. I spray painted them and nobody was ever the wiser. We also lucked out and found their dresses off the rack at Macy's and they both fit perfectly. They were meant to be.



I guess kind of like us.  We fit perfectly off the rack too. No adjustments needed.  We clicked right from the get go. 

We met when mutual friends Gavin and Nadege were going to see Rocky Horror Picture Show and we were all mashed into the same car. We've been together ever since.

It's been a pretty darn good ride so far.

Sure we're a little older.





Sometimes a little wiser.


We've made a lot of memories and have more to make.


We're a little heavier and have more wrinkles.


Mostly, we're just as happy as when we started and more importantly, happy to  be together.

Pretty much, we're still just us.


I wouldn't want to go through life with anyone other than you Babe.


We're at the end of more thundershowers. They're nearly done. It lashed rain. Wishing it would be kind enough to pour down on Colorado to stop the fire. 

Hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was full of yard and house stuff, a little swimming in the pool and breakfast at the 401. It was all good.

See you on the flip side.

  6. Happy Anniversary - time does go by so quickly! I can totally relate to the 1980's flashback...and awesome that you made your own headpiece. And those hats...never would have thought of that back then! Congrats and cheers to you both!
