31 years ago today...

I married my best friend! I was 20 and he was 21! Sometimes it seems like yesterday and other times, not so much!! :)

I was looking through some of our wedding pictures today and was sad to see how many of our loved ones are no longer with us. We have lost both of our moms, all of our grandparents, all but one aunt and several beloved friends. It makes me stop and reflect on the time I have with the people I love and care about.


Here we are at my mom and dad's house, before we got married. I was 19 and RIchard was 20! Don't we look like kids? LOL





We had an outdoor garden ceremony. The weather was absolutely gorgeous. In fact, the weather today is identical to what it was 31 years ago!




These were both taken this summer. Boy have we aged!!
