Happy Anniversary


to us!
Thirty seven years ago today was a warm and sunny day for November in Massachusetts. "Come Saturday Morning" by the Sandpipers and "If I were a Carpenter" were two of my favorite songs. We had known eachother for exactly four months: we were madly in love and he was going off to war. I had a few days off from nursing school for the Thanksgiving holiday, and C was scheduled to leave for Viet Nam on December 1st, so we set the date and gathered as many of our family members and friends as possible to celebrate with us.
Short dress eh? Didn't have time for much more, but I didn't care...and neither did he! C was a bit chubbier back then, and I was a bit slimmer. We both smoked. My, my how the years have changed us!
Here we are with C's parents:
and cutting the cake.
They said it wouldn't last. They also said I must be pregnant.....our baby was born 8 1/2 years later.....it was just love!
Today I celebrated at the dentist's office, then visited my Mom, later went swimming, and now we will go wash windows: how romantic. We are planning to celebrate with friends this evening.
PEACE

Happy anniversary. You were a cute little bride. "They" said our marriage wouldn't last either but it's been 44 years and counting...

Is that your real hair color or have you dyed that too ;-))))

I think you celebrate Thanksgiving "over there" tomorrow, so Happy Thanksgiving!

Lots of HUGS from your Swedish family!
