Happy Anniversary Al !

"This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with and love."
(Man, we don't look anything like this now !!!)

24 years ago I promised my bestest friend that I would love and cherish him, comfort and protect, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer 'til death do us part.  Today I am still married to my bestest friend and I wouldn't swop him for anything.

We have had our ups and downs as all married couples have but I can't think of anyone else I would rather wake up next to every morning, or anyone else who I would rather see last thing before I go to sleep.  Yes, during the night I am sometimes not that happy to have him sleeping next to me when his snoring kicks in, but I remember reading somewhere a while ago a letter from a lady whose husband used to snore a racket at night.  After he died, she said she couldn't sleep because it was too quiet and she wanted to hear the snoring again.  In all likelihood, I will be the same as her but for now, there are times when I have considered all sorts of options to stop the snoring !

I can't think of anyone else I would rather have next to me when I am watching a movie or training or cycling or just sitting doing nothing (although if I am honest here, if I am sitting doing nothing it is highly unlikely that Al will be sitting there with me - he doesn't do nothing easily !!!)

I truly hope we can get our act together and make it to Canada for our anniversary next year - for this year, a nice dinner out will be great !

Love, hugs and positive energy.

TFTD : Love is not how you forget but how you forgive, not how you listen but how you understand, not what you see but how you feel, and not how you let go but how you hold on.


  1. Happy Anniversary to you both. Wow, 24 years - silver next year.

    Have a wonderful dinner and a great weekend.

    PS: How are those reno's going.

  2. Thanks Lee-Anne. I have sent a message via FB because the things that have gone wrong are too long to list here !!!!!

    Given the dramas from the renos this morning, Al only left for Ipswich at about 9.30 so not sure what time he will be home tonight - if not in time to go out for dinner we will go out to dinner tomorrow night instead.

    Have a great afternoon !

  3. Congratulations. It is a special bonus when you marry your best friend.

  4. Congratulations! What a beautiful photo!

    I hope you have a wonderful anniversary...and make to to Canada next year!

  5. Thanks Badger - yes, it's definitely a bonus when you marry your best friend.

    Thanks Diane - it is a good photo - if only I have enjoyed having the photos taken on the day - I hated that part of the whole ceremony !!!

  6. Happy Anniversary! I hope to feel the same way as you after 24 years of marriage!!

  7. Thanks Lady Daa Doo - I hope so too !!! I wouldn't swop him for anyone.

  8. I love the wedding photo. You look very beautiful, relaxed and happy. I'm sure you do look something like that now and how great it is that you're still together. My husband and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary this year too.
