Eighteen Years!

”Happy Anniversary to us,
Happy Anniversary to us,
Happy Anniversary dear Chuck & Lee
Happy Anniversary to us -
and many more!

Eighteen years ago, the weather was just as beautiful as it is today when our families gathered in our home for the wedding. Chuck and I had known each other for six years; been together for three. We were certain we wanted to be married. We were sure we were the happiest we could be. By the end of the year, we both realized that we were continuing to feel happier and more content as the weeks turned into months. It may sound silly, but that floored us. Luckily, amazingly it continues to be true. They say a second marriage is a triumph of optimism over experience. I’m so glad we felt that optimism, grabbed onto it and let it carry us down the aisle!
