While we were traveling back from CO last week, Randy & I would occasionally look at each other and say "No way! 30 years!" We could hardly believe that we would be celebrating 30 years of marriage today. No way! Not 30 years. That means we should be old or something. And we're not. Right?
Anyway, I love being married to this man. And we are more in love than ever before. I seriously don't know what I did to deserve such a loving, giving, kind and thoughtful husband. He's so patient with me and if you know me at all, you know that isn't always easy. I love that we can spend 15 straight hours on the road talking and dreaming and laughing and crying... and know that we could turn around and do it again in a week and have even more to talk and dream about.
We loved out wedding day. And this photo happens to be one of my favorites. It was not posed... just candid and natural. We sang at our reception along with some of our other musician friends. So as you can imagine, there was lots of love and laughter going on in that little church hall back in August of '79.
God truly gave me the man of my dreams. But to be honest, I never dreamed of someone like Randy. I didn't think someone like him existed. I also never dreamed about my wedding day. Ever. I never thought about my gown or the flowers or a reception. Never. But I did dream about being married. And these past 30 years have far surpassed anything I ever hoped or imagined. And I am forever grateful.
*** Thanks Nancy for taking our 30th Wedding Anniversary portrait at Fish Creek Falls, CO last week! (the top pic) Love it!
