Fifty Years of Marriage

Wayne and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary on Friday. We had a small celebration (just the two of us) because we have planned a family celebration for next summer when our children and grandchildren will be available for a week together in San Diego.

I got our wedding album off a high shelf, dusted it off, and took a wee trip down memory lane. The album is literally falling apart but our marriage is still going strong. When I look at those two young people in the photos and think of ourselves as we are now, I celebrate the love, friendship, and hard work we've shared during that half century. Together we raised two fine children, shared joys, sorrows, and adventures, and would do it all over again.


  1. Congratulations on your Gold Wedding Anniversary!

  2. Thank you, Marta. I don't feel old enough to have been married for 50 years, but it's true!
