After posting my depressing post, I thought I might add something uplifting. Today is my 27th Wedding Anniversary. Yep, you heard right, twenty seven years. that means my husband and I have known each other 29 years. Yes we dated for two years before tying the knot. And one of those years we were seniors in high school.
How did we get to 27 years. It seems like I just asked him out yesterday. *Slaps hand over mouth* Yes, I confess, I asked him out first, but hear me out. One of my classmates was in a school play, and she was playing the lead role(Hello Dolly), so I asked my man if he wanted to go, he said yes. But low and behold, we both ended up having to work that night and we never made on the date I asked him out on.
Fast forward a few weeks and he turned around and asked me out. We saw the movie Alien. Yes, I know, it is a classic. But I never got to see the climatic finale where the alien gets blown up, for I was *cough cough* occupied. Yes, our first kiss as well.
I have never looked back. We have had our ups and downs, but not in our marriage so much as it has been financial. But I fall back on a classic Sony and Cher song..."I Got You Babe" And yes, our love may not pay the rent, but I know many-a folks who have much more money than we do and not half of the happiness. I think I am the winner!
Here's to you Bubba(Another blogging story) and to another 27 years!
