Twenty years ago, on December 17th, hubby and I were married at 3pm. We didn't have a big wedding, just a small get-together at Mom's house. We were married in front of the fireplace in the living room. My daughter was my Maid of Honor, my niece was my bridesmaid. My niece has two boys, Griffyn 17 months and Tarryn 4 months.
My nephew was 2 years old and was the ring bearer. He is 22 today and has kids of his own, including a set of twins. Dwight's best man was his brother. His oldest brother brought his girlfriend and her little boy. The boy and his mother both died in a house fire a few years later.
Hubby and I didn't do much today. We went to the doctor and he gave us antibiotics for our sinus problems and my ear infection. That nasty bug that was a virus turned into a bacterial infection. We ordered out for supper and had chicken and ribs. Neither of us felt like going out.
Hubby and I don 't do anniversary gifts. We figure it is too close to Christmas. We usually do go out to dinner, but neither of us felt like it tonight, so we ordered in. We enjoyed our chicken and ribs with baked potato, buns and coleslaw and toasted each other with a glass of sparkling cider. It was a lovely meal and we both enjoyed it.
Twenty years sounds like a long time but it has passed quickly. We've had our ups and downs just like every couple and have climbed mountains and trudged through valleys, but have stuck together through thick and thin. I think we both deserve medals. LOL
Have a great day and remember to do a random act of kindness. ~Blessings, Mary~
