My, how time flies...

when you're having fun!  17 years ago yesterday, I was blessed to marry my special person, my Marine.  I was warmly taken into his family, they became family to me.

Like most (any?) life-commitment, it has not always been smooth or easy.   There have been rough patches,  job changes, kids,  a doctor who uttered the immortal phrase , "Oops, I must've cut the wrong thing! ", surgeries and scares  along our shared path.

But we have been blessed.  Blessed in more ways than I can give voice to here.  Our kids are healthy.  We can afford to share our home with dogs we love.   DH has a good job.  We are finally getting our chance to live a more rural lifestyle, something we have both sought since before that day,  17 years ago.

This whole moving process is coming to a head at last.  We should be on the market a week from Monday.  The process has seen us spending several nights a week apart, as DH can't afford the time to commute 170+miles each day.  While neither of us particularly enjoy being parted, it's just something we have to put up with for a little while longer.

I just know how lucky and blessed I am to have DH as my husband.  I shall be forever content, with him in my life, however long my life may be.


  1. God Bless You and Yours! It's so wonderful to read your posts. I'm so happy for you and excited for the adventure you're about to embark on. Happiest Happy Anniversary! :-)

  2. You two are awesome. Happy Anniversary!! I'm blessed to be able to call you and D my friends.


I blog for myself, my family and friends, and of course the Hounds! I love to read your comments, and I always read them all.

But if you are here just to shill your own product, or are a spammer, don't waste your time or mine.
