Happy Anniversary to Me and Mine!

     Forty-eight years ago today my husband and I were married in the Catholic church which I attended from  birth to age 23.  We had a modest but formal wedding...a lovely reception at the local Country Club (a remodeled farm house at the edge of an apple orchard/nine hole golf course)...and a very short honeymoon in the big city of St. Louis.   We were both from rural in Illinois (mine) and his in Missouri, so St. Louis was  a big deal for us then!!!  I had taught for one year in the Kansas City, Missouri area and he was in the Air Force so had seen a little bit of the "world"....San Antonio, Texas and Reno, Nevada so we weren't just total greenhorns!!

     After our wedding, we headed to Nevada where he was stationed...within six months we were on our way to Anchorage, Alaska for two years...stationed at Elmendorf Air Force Base.  And within another seven months we were proud parents of our first daughter...It is a good thing the young and dumb have no idea what they are getting into!!!, 48 years, several moves, another daughter, a terrific son-in-law and two perfect grandchildren later....we would not change one thing!!!!

We are looking forward to the next....well, probably not 48, but maybe another 28!!!!


  1. congratulations and may you enjoy many many MANY more happy years~!

    may i ask where in Nevada you were stationed?


  2. I'm so happy for you. Best wishes on your 48th anniversary. Life is good.
