Thirty Years


My 30th anniversary is today and every year on this day, I realize that the thing I am most proud of in my life, is my marriage.

We met our freshman year (1977) at MSU, in Akers Hall and have been together ever since. This photo sits on my dresser and I am so happy we took it together, on graduation day, so many years ago. It helps us remember how young we were then and also remember how far we have come.

We have lived in Texas, Tennessee, New Jersey and now Michigan. We have traveled to many places including Florida numerous times, Phoenix, New Orleans, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, Boston, Vancouver, Toronto, the Bahamas and Maui, twice. Our dream, is to travel one day to Italy, and also to Scotland for a golf trip.

Of course, our daughters Megan and Melissa are the greatest accomplishment in our lives and we continue to be proud parents as they grow into adulthood.

We are enjoying our empty nest, and like being able to do things at our leisure. To celebrate our anniversary, we attended the MSU basketball game together on Sunday and also have a trip planned soon to the wineries in Northern Michigan.

Happy Anniversary to my hubby and may there be 30 more!
