A Special Day

Monday, July 04, 2011

26 years ago while out at the beach I picked up this good looking guy. 7 years later I married him.And now we have been married for 19 years.Today is our anniversary. I was lucky enough to marry my best friend who is still my best friend and the love of my life. I think having a demon or my first husband helped me to recognize a really good man. I tell people that Bill is my reward for surviving the first marriage.
I always tell my kids that talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words. Bill's actions every day show how much he loves me. I am the luckiest and most blessed woman. He is what makes me want to wake up each morning. Corny I know but he is the best.
We have been just resting today. We are both on the tired side today so we are mostly just watching TV. He is going to grill us a steak later.
Thanks for all the congrats I have already gotten.
It is so hot here. I don't see how people stay out in this. But I did it when I was younger so age must have something to do with it.LOl
Hope you all are having a great day.
Only pic I have is the yellow hibiscus bloom.We got 2 of these plants at home depot and the blooms are so huge.

ok I will give you a good laugh. The first one was before we got married. And the other one is the big day.It isn't very clear but check out the huge glasses I have on. Bill was cool as a cucumber and I was a wreck.

    You both look so cute in your old timey fact neither of you have changed much at all. I love your wedding photo to...aren't those old glasses a hoot..but they were all the rage. I remember a pair I wore in high school that were very similar to what are in now..the one's with the heavy rims and the dark colors...I guess if you hold on to something long enough it's going to come back in style some day! Of course back during that period I wore my hair long with bangs and it curled in the tightest, goofiest looking sausage roll flip on the ends...but I thought I was stylin' big time! emoticon

I love the way that you say Bill was your reward for living through your first marriage I can say EXACTLY the same thing about my first husband was a bonifide nut case...lucky I made through those 10 years of hell and was able to escape with all my fingers and toes...and SOME of my sanity! Wow! emoticon

    Hi Ms. Eleni,
Happy Anniversary to a very special couple! and happy belated 4th. We had fun here, a parade for me, cookout and fireworks at home so my special son could enjoy them. It's too hard to take him to a July 4th event. I love the yellow rose and your special photos! Take care and talk to you soon,

    I hope you two had a wonderful anniversary!! It's hard to find a keeper like Bill. Lucky for me I found my best friend and partner as well.

I'm loving the heat and humidity here. I have a horrible cold and sitting outside cleats up my nose. I sat in the sun at lunch today and it was so nice. The table was so hot it burned my arms and butt but I didn't care.

I love the pictures of you and Bill! My mom had big glasses too but hers may have been bigger. I'm so glad that's not the style anymore!!!

    I absolutely love the western one. What a picture to treasure. But...what is that big white thing sticking out of your right boob? Just asking. It looks like a big bandage. I am sure it is a simple explanation but I don't see it in my old age. emoticon

And you are NOT corny saying that Bill is who makes you want to wake up in the morning. That is so wonderful........not many couples can say that. You are very lucky to have found each other.
Enjoy Your Day!!!!!! emoticon
