A Happy 25th!




Twenty Five years ago today, I was standing at Roosevelt Park in Minot, North Dakota and saying "I DO". It was a beautiful day, the flowers in bloom, a gentle breeze and love was in the air. I was wearing an off white dress while my husband was dressed in a Navy blue cordory suit jacket. We had two of our friends witness the event (along with my son aged 9 and daughter aged 7.) We were married by the JP, so nothing really elaborate. We did have a reception for family a week later while we juggled schedules with work and the military. If I would have had it my way, we wouldn't have gotten married in July, but as it turned out, we were able to get into military housing that month if we did. We had dated for 6 years, so what was the rush? lol
I have no regrets as he has been my love and soul mate. We have endured good times and bad, but to think 25 is a milestone, makes you wonder where all of those years went. Our minds feel the same, however we have gained wisdom, experience and have changed physically. Here's to us, dear hubby! May we still be together for another 25!

SO sweetie - Happy 25th Anniversary!
Minot is a beautiful place - when it is NOT covered in snow!
That was my dh's first duty station. He never got to see the city, by the time the snow melted, he was reassigned!
