Today is Nancy’s and my 25th wedding anniversary. I had planned on a longer post for today; stories of how Nancy and I met and relating some of our adventures along the way. However our lives are rather hectic at this moment so those interesting tales may have to wait for another blog.
I will say that my partnership with her has been a remarkable experience. Anything I could imagine about the perfect wife has been far surpassed by the reality. She has made my life immeasurably profound and richer and I am damn lucky to have found her.
We met through singles ads; this was pre-Internet times we are talking about. I asked her to marry me after we had known each other only ten days. I guess we have answered the question already about whether it will last.
We had tentative plans to arrange a celebration with friends and family; well, the family is scattered here and there and the friends are traveling and we are up to our ears in managing the mundane, time consuming, aspects of our busy lives. But then that is what our marriage has always been about: working together, building a life together.
It’s been a great ride for 25 years and we will continue to appreciate each day together for as long as we can hold our feet on this planet.
Happy Anniversary, Nancy – I love you more than I could ever fully convey.
