Then and Now

"Happy Anniversary, baby. Got you on my mind." Humming the Little River Band song today.Look at those kids! The daughters laugh at the 70's long sleeved and high collared dress and the Mr.'s gray suit. They are amazed at my lack of makeup and hairdo. (I was pretty low maintenance even then. I can still shower, dress, and do my make up and hair in 30 minutes. And yes, it looks like I spent that little time!)
And 33 years later... Yep, 33. People married younger in the 70's. I was a child bride. (That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!) The Mr. says he's pretty sure we had 3 good years in there somewhere, and I'm pretty sure that I make his life absolutely wonderful! He doesn't have a blog, so you'll just have to trust me on this one!

Congrats! This is the best kind of success story. 33! That's 10 more than I have in with I.T.- you look fabulous in the high collared, long sleever. It looks just like mine only I had some sort of beekeepers hat with the netting over my face job. Talk about ick! But I still wouldn't be caught dead in the sleeveless, sleeves of a dress brides wear nowadays. Scary...

Enjoy!!

Happy 33rd Anniversary! You both look sweet. It's amazing how young we once were. :-) May your love keep growing stronger with each new day.

Brilliant. I believe my dad's wedding 'tux' was brown PLAID. (Plaid??? Plaid???)
You both looked lovely, of course. And, I must say, had Mr. E been endorsing shampoo at the time I would certainly have purchased a bottle.

Happy Anniversary!!! I hope you have a fun anniversary weekend!

I had to laugh when I saw your wedding photo because I wore a long sleeved, high neck dress that looks similar to yours, AND, my husband wore a gray suit! That was 24 years ago.

Oh, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! I am singing "Happy Anniversary" to you. Can you hear it? It goes to the tune of "Happy Birthday" of course.
