Has it really been that long?

Time Flies when you are having fun. M and I celebrated our 20th Wedding Anniversary yesterday. It doesn't seem that long ago that I was a new bride. He called me around 9:00 and said "Hey it's official, we've now been married 20 years."

Me in my wedding gown.




M and on our wedding day. (the girls were laughing at my puffy bangs and M's longer hair. Infact, they were laughing at my brother David's hair and they started singing "I want my mullet back")

M and I went to Hawaii for our honeymoon.

He surprised me with 20 long stemmed red roses, a rose for each year, and for dinner we went to the Melting Pot. The Melting Pot was so Yummo! We were going to go somewhere exotic and far away, and romantic for our anniversary. But we have decided to wait until October and go on a cruise. I am so busy with this master's class this summer, that I didn't have enough spare time. Pretty pathetic huh?






Where has 20 years gone? Let's see...We have 3 daughter's, 2 dogs, and have lived in 5 states. Through the years, we have laughed, cried, worried, fought, and loved. Our friendship and love is better today, than it was 20 years ago. There is the old saying: "That love is like a violin, the music only gets sweeter with time!"

Wow, 20 years! Just so you know, you don't look old enough to have been married 20 years. But you certainly have accomplished alot together to be proud of!

20 years - how awesome! Sounds like you had a great anniversary. I love the melting pot - one of my favorite places to eat (without kids).
