And The Gold Goes To...

...HUBBY!

For on this day, 32 years ago, he married me.  

And to his credit, he's never tried to trade me in on a newer model or smother me in my sleep if I snore.  He's the best kind of husband: accepts me for who I am (heaven help him!) and loves me in spite of it. Plus he's a helluva cook!

It's not a myth.  You can have happily ever after if you're willing to compromise, listen and still say "I love you".  And mean it.

I do.  Still.

Yay! Congratulations to you both, but don't forget he was also wise enough to make the right choice.

I'm going to get him that very gold medal.

Now if his customers will just go home and let him finish cutting the grass, we may get out of cooking and go to dinner yet!

Oh wow! A hearty congrats to you and the Hubby! 32 years... what were you? 4 when you got married? You can't be old enough to have been married that long!

A gold to each of you!!

MITM: thanks...and congrats to y'all for new addition!

Ponita: I think you and I are the same age. :) But we met when I was 16 and he 17, so we joke we grew up together.
