Twenty Five Years

Hard to believe, although I always knew it was a lasting relationship, twenty five years gone by is hard to imagine.  We were so young....We're off today to celebrate.  We were married on the 4th of July, so always a day off, and always fireworks, except for maybe this year when we'll be in Canada.

Some moments from 25 years...

Valentines day, clearly in love!  Look at those red suspenders, and that beard!


Our wedding, July 4th, 1987 White Bear Lake Minnesota. Dress by Jessica McClintock, cameo something  borrowed from Mom, and my handsome Mark.


Carribean Cruise, 1990 ish, notice one of my first beading attempts!


Our beautiful family, Santa Cruz harbor, 1993 ish, Brian, Casey, Lucia, Mark, Marcia and Ladysmith

It's been an amazing twenty five years.  I couldn't have asked for a better life partner.  One who supports me in every way, makes me feel cared about and loved, gives me the freedom to pursue my passions, and shares my love of travel, and love of home.  I look forward to what our next twenty five will bring!  Love you honey.
