Wedding Anniversary

My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary last week. I can't believe that so much time has gone by. We are high school sweethearts (yes...some really do stick together), so we've been together for 19 years in total--basically we've spent our entire adult lives together. Even though things are a bit (a lot) different from our carefree high school years (two kids, a house, and car loans have a way of changing things), I can honestly say that we are still very much in love--a fact which definitely helps when writing romance.

Mind you, it's different from that rush of new love, which is all stomach flutters and sweaty palms. But I think it's better. It's knowing that you can count on someone to be there for you, someone who'll listen to you complain, someone who'll still find you sexy when you're wearing your most comfortable (read ugly) night gown.

I wouldn't change a thing.

Belated congratulations to you and your husband Marcy! Good job.
Loved the post. Particularly that poignant last line. Not something many can say in these days and times. I'm fortunate in that I feel the same way. We're creeping toward #17. We weren't high school sweethearts, but we were a love at first sight kinda thing. We met, got engaged and got married all in one year. And its all still good. Luck, skill, tolerance, many components.
Enjoy the next ten...and the next...and the....

P.S I tagged you for a book meme on my blog, if you're interested :0)

Thanks, Lainey.
Wow...17 years! You're a seasoned veteran. Sounds like you and your husband have a great relationship.

I'm off to take a look at your blog.

Hi Marcy:

I'm new to this 'blogging' phenomenon, so forgive me.

Great site. Glad you fixed the system so I don't have to be a member to post a note. I couldn't figure it all out before!
Talk to you later, Elaine
