Friday 55

Did you write your 55 word story this week?  Then don't forget to tell the g-man.

Something old: Mom’s dress
Something new: Shoes (NEVER wear 4” heels again!)
Something borrowed: Veil
Something blue: garter that sis-in-law’s controlling husband wouldn’t let her wear.
Lucky sixpence in her shoe: Hard enough walking in heels!

And the key to 31 years of happily ever after?
Respect.  
 Compromise. 
Humor.
And no one shoved wedding cake.

Photo taken 8/8/80
Date picked only because another bride beat me to the church.
Still have groom.  
Sadly, I have no idea where that tiny little waist went!

I love your key to long-term marriage. Compromise is really underrated as a tool to maintaining marital bliss. We have 20 years together, more than our previous four marriages combined, thanks to a similar kind of list. Congratulations to you both.

Thanks y'all!

We had a nice relaxing weekend and ended up adding to our antiques with an oak dresser that matches all the other pieces Hubby has given me over the years.

See, I KNEW I picked the right guy. ;)
