Happy Anniversary



Today Gordon and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.

How time flies!!! It only seems like yesterday that we were married and now 20 years later and three kids we know it wasn't.

It's been a fabulous 20 years - Lots of fun and laughter. I am so lucky to have someone like Gordon who is such a great dad and husband and my best friend. We have done so much together including travelling for 12 months around the world when we were first married. It's been so good sharing all these memories together. I wouldn't trade him for anything - (can you imagine trying to train another man after all these years?) Anyway, enough soppiness. Of course, you would all believe me if I said that we have never had a cross word!!!! (yeah - right). He only forgot our anniversary once and that was our 9th - he has never ever forgotten again.

Here's a pic of our 1987 wedding. (very eighties, I know) should have seen the bridesmaids - jade green taffeta!!!! Big dresses!

I actually can't believe that I am old enough to have been married this long. Only old people have wedding anniversaries this big!!!! (that's what I used to think).

I am not sure what we are doing in the way of a celebration - I am told it will be a surprise, but I am enjoying these gorgeous red roses he gave me.

Happy Anniversary my sweet man!!

congratulations Cathy, it is a big achievement these days, some days it seems like all my friends are getting divorced. I have been married for 12 years and like you have only had cross words 2 times in 14 years together. ( says more about my lovely husband than me I must admit!)Hope your day is memorable and Love ly. :)

Congratulations - I have been happily unmarried to the same man for 17 years. Surely I am not old enough for that either.

Wow congratulations to you both!! Twenty years is quite a milestone and I hope you do something lovely and romantic to celebrate. You must look at all your gorgeous men and think how wonderful life is!!
BTW you certainly don't look old enough to have been married that long!!

Happy Anniversary! Yes. Old people have big numbered anniversaries. I've stopped counting what number we're up to. LOL.
