Anniversary -- Then and Now

Today we're celebrating our wedding anniversary. We were married 23 years ago on my parents' blueberry farm in Kentucky.
 Here we are driving off in my Mustang convertible, and you can tell by the look on my face, that I was ecstatic. So, I like to think that's one thing that hasn't changed after 23 years.
There are moments when I realize how lucky I am to have tied myself to this man who makes me happy -- on most days.
Here we are today before going out to brunch in a photo unwillingly taken by our 17-year-old son.
And here I am at the restaurant drinking a Kir Royale and pretending I'm in France. But, I'm still in Ohio. The drinks were the best thing about the meal, but that happens some times. Look how fabulous the drinks look, with the creme de cassis settled at the bottom. Should we have stirred them up before we drank them? the last few drink were awfully sweet.

Maybe too much cassis , but yes I would of stirred them :-)

No worries about missing my post (well then found it ) I think with parents visit and all that was going on, it does happen to us all at some point ,, xo

Thank, Anne. Don't want to be misleading to everyone that every day of marriage is ecstatic, but it's an ebb and flow. Some days wonderful, other days a struggle, but goo to know that there can be those truly happy days.

Happy Anniversary-I have never had a kir royal, I am afraid it may be too strong for me. I always say I will have one but never do.
