In honor of our 29th wedding anniversary, here is a poem I wrote years ago for my husband. Some of you may remember it…
You placed it in my hands, adorned with a red bow
only a short clip of time had passed by our window
After pulling out tissue paper of white
I was entranced by the amazing sight
For inside was a lifetime together and
a house to be filled by the love we would gather
The walls stood bare waiting for memories to dress
showing reasons for us feeling truly blessed
The best gift of all, though, I am thrilled to say
was your heart at the bottom, committed to stay

(Over the years, some things have changed besides us getting older :). God Bless my husband’s mom and both of my parents as they rest in Heaven. And we hope for another 29 years, so we can continue growing old together.) 💕

Lovely poem, Lauren. Congratulations on your 29th. Growing old together sounds like a blessing.
Thanks for your lovely words, John, and I agree that growing old together sounds like a blessing. We went away for the weekend and had a wonderful celebration. Have a good Monday!

WHAT TRULY COUNTS
Not as significant as
Enjoying each day
(We hit 31 last December. 🙂 )
Aww, Ben, I think both count very much. Our anniversary is our special day, no one else’s, so that’s special in itself. And then, of course, enjoying each day is a given, something never to be taken for granted. We went away for the weekend and had a great time. Making more memories…Now we’re on our way to catching up with you and your wife. 🙂 Congrats on your 31st!
I agree with you, Lauren. Glad you enjoyed your weekend. 🙂
Thanks, and now back to Monday. I know, I know, enjoy each day. 😀 😀 😀
I wouldn’t dream of saying a word. 😉
Haha! It’s great when you do, though, makes for good conversation. 😊❤️
Congratulations on your 29th anniversary! Those are beautiful wedding photos. Hope you have a wonderful day, both of you. 💐❤️🎊🤝💖😍😍 Hugs!
Thanks, Betty, for your lovely comment. We actually went away for the weekend and had a great celebration. The last time we went away, we carried backpacks, so this time, the luxury was nice for us both. 🙂
I hope you had a good weekend, too. Sending love and hugs! ❤🥂🎼😊🌻☕
Sounds so lovely to get away! And a little luxury never hurt anyone. 😍💓🎶
Happy Anniversary! ❤
Thanks, Bette! 💕

Thanks so much, Annika, for your beautiful comment about the poem and photos. I still have my wedding dress, and I also have my mom’s from 1945. 🙂 We actually went away for the weekend and had a magical celebration. Now, heading towards our 30th! Have a lovely day, my friend. 💕xoxo
So lovely. More years to come 😻
