23 Years

Well today I have been a Mrs for 23 years, yeah 23 years, how can it possibly be that long!  I, or rather we, look soooo young in the picture. I look a bit different now, a few (quite a few) pounds heavier lol, a few wrinkles and grey hair. As a sideline, why is it that Danny has less grey hair than me - don't think that is very fair - do you? I think I must have had a harder life than him - or something!!!

Anyway, when  I woke up 23 years ago today it was a beautiful day, blue sky, sun shining but very cold. One of my abiding memories of that day was I had no where to put a hanky and boy my nose was running that day. But my lovely husband had a hanky in his pocket which he gave to me so I could blow my nose and of course I had to give it back to him as I had nowhere to put it. He took it and put it back in his pocket - Ahh true love!!! lol.

We had a great day and I truly enjoyed our wedding day. I would do it again in a heartbeat - but, it would have to be with Danny again. 

Happy Anniversary Dan!!!! Here's to many many more.

Hi, Dear Ellie.
Wow, Happy anniversary to you two♡♡♡
And you looked just ADORABLE cute girl!!!
Oh, I loved the way you put it remembering the day. Yes, I also DO recall thinking no place to have a hanky in case I would be in tears when I read the appreciation letter to my parents at the ceremony (haha, I didn't)
ps> our anniversary is 30th of Oct. (34 years) This year was busy to do any thing.

Love and Lots of Hugs to you, Orchid*

Hi Elaine, thanks for commenting. I was thinking that I looked a bit like Emma - there is no denying she is my daughter is there? Or did you think she looked like Danny lol.
