Happy 25th Anniversary


DH and I celebrate 25 years of marriage today. One of our best accomplishments together is our two sons, ages 15 and 19. Here is a recent photo of our family.
Why would I marry on Dec 30th? Long story shortened....he joined the military and he wanted to be sure I could go with him to his first duty assignment. At that time we knew for sure he would be home on leave during the holidays so planning a wedding was doable. Once we made several deposits to hold the hall, church, and order the invites we learned his first duty assignment would be right there at "home" in California! We went on with the planned wedding. Life for me during the first few years didn't change much as a military spouse since I never left my family, friends, job and life as I knew it. The only difference was now he got into a military uniform everyday and worked at the base (less than 10 minutes away). His next duty assignment took us to Europe and we spent many wonderful years traveling until his retirement just two years ago.
The 25 year anniversary is a milestone and we would love to celebrate it on a cruise or even perhaps Hawaii. But for now we still have the boys to get through college.

Happy Anniversary! Lovely family. Glad to see your son in the "Band t-shirt"! At times I think it is only my son wearing them! Refuses to wear any others. At a Thanksgiving dinner his t-shirt scared a small family member. Some of them are hideous but he loves them. But I'm always glad to see others in them so I know I am not alone!
Have a blessed New Year and I hope you get a "special trip" to celebrate your 25th!

Oh Happy Anniversary! What an accomplishment in these times, believe me, they're aren't many of us that hit that mark anymore! Ours was in 2007.

Many happy years to come!

Congratulations, that is a big accomplishment. Our son is career Air Force, year 21, I think. The sad part is we never see those grandkids. They are in Florida now and we are in Washington State. Love your quilt. I get my DH to do my ripping while he is watching TV. Works for me

Happy Anniversary! I have been on a "computer vacation" so I am trying to catch up today. I so know about the "nothing for us until the kids are out of college". Just one more to go but the reward will be just the sweeter when it gets here.

A very happy 25th anniversary. And I enjoyed reading about your wedding plans. How cute that you ended up staying right where you were at.
