Day 49 – #43

The date was February 19, 1972. It was an overcast day, but the sun eventually came out ( I say it was a good omen). By most accounts it was an ordinary day, except for one, one very, very special one. It was our wedding day. We were young, very young. We were in love, very in love. And we were getting married. Pretty sure most thought it wouldn’t last. There were times when we weren’t sure it would last. We were kids, we just didn’t know it, and we had lot’s of what we call The Good, The Bad and The Ugly in our future. Through thick and thin, ups and downs, good times and bad, living here and living there, joy and sadness, tears and laughter we have made it here..43 (or 44 as the card my one and only gave me said, but who’s counting? We had a good laugh!) There is no “secret sauce”, no special formula, it hasn’t been easy and we aren’t the perfect couple but we (I am allowed to speak for him on this) wouldn’t change a thing. We are where we are and who we are as a couple because of all that has gone on before. My card said, “It’s not about the journey or the destination. It’s about who you travel with.” And traveling together, both figuratively and literally is what we have done for the past 43 or 44 years, depending on whose card you are looking at. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

      I am in California. My oldest brother passed away on Friday so I am with my nephews helping them with all the arrangements. Thank you for asking. I have missed my daily photographic journey and will get back on track next week.
