20 years

Some days I have to ask myself  just how old I really am. 
I find that I'm alot older than I often think I am.
Do you have that problem too?

Here I am (with my high school sweetheart),
at our Junior Prom, May 31, 1985.
I am all of 16 years old here.

No snickering allowed.

Now take today, for instance.   

Am I really old enough to have been married for 20 years?
October 10, 1992~October 10, 2012

20 years is such a looooong time.



The answer is yes.  Apparently I am old enough. 
Oh good heavens...I'm old!

And yes, I am married to that high school sweetheart above.
 
Happy 20th Anniversary! ♥

In the words of Gladys Knight,
(who I just saw in concert...she was phenomenal)
"You're the best thing that ever happened to me."

Dear Gina, Congratulations to you and your husband for your 20th Wedding Anniversary. I have to say, you certainly don't look your age and you don't look as if you are old enough to have been married for 20 years. Married life obviously suits you. Have a fabulous day. Best Wishes Daphne

Happy anniversary! It's shocking how fast time goes by. I feel like I just graduated from high school and then I realize that 1993 really was a long time ago. By the way, I married my prom date, too. ;)

I know...isn't it crazy! My 84 year old mother always says that it is only when she looks in the mirror that she is reminded of her age but if her body would allow her, oh what her mind would like it to do!

Well forget the fact you are 11 years younger than me (at least I can't be yo mama), and I didn't snicker, I did notice the Lady Di train, and when ever I hear that song I always think of Brawn.

Happy 20th.

Bliss
