“I love being married. It’s so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.” —Rita Rudner

September 28, 2022

Dear Skip, Happy 42nd anniversary to us! I often say that I can not believe how comfortable I am with you! It was true all those years ago when we said our “I do’s” and even more true as we celebrate and reminisce about our life together and make future plans. This past year has not felt quite as terrifying as the one before but it has still been challenging, and I can not think of another person who would have stuck by my side through the good and the bad and made me feel safe and loved.

 “Marriage is a mosaic you build with your spouse. Millions of tiny moments that create your love story.” ~Jennifer Smith. 

There are all those beautiful moments from the past, the memories we create today, and due to your spreadsheets and calendar notifications, we have a plan for memory-making in the future! No wall calendar for us!

As I searched for photos of us together, not surprisingly, the memories flooded my eyes with happy tears. Often, I have learned, to look at the big picture not only the moments, but it is indeed the moments that make up the whole of who we are to each other and our families and friends.

“A good marriage is one where each partner suspects they got the better deal.” ~ Unknown

I know I got the better deal when I married you! Not that you got a bad deal! Even after all these years, you make me laugh (though to be honest I am much funnier)! You make me take chances I would never have taken, and you put up with my crazy and you take care of me. You take me places I would never have gone and helped me meet people along the way that enrich our lives.

“Who won in life? Me. Because I got to marry you.” ~Chip Gaines

I love the memories we make with our children and grandchildren, we are so blessed!

“Do I love you? My God, If your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches.”

~ Westley from The Princess Bride

I look forward to making more memories with you, our family, our friends, and those we will meet along the way.

“What’s Mickey without Minnie,
Or piglet without pooh,
What’s Donald without Daisy?
That’s me without you.

When Ariel Doesn’t sing,
and Pooh hates honey,
when Tigger stops bouncing,
and Goofy isn’t funny.

When Peter Pan can’t fly,
and Simba never roars,
when Alice no longer fits
through small doors.

When Dumbo’s ears are small,
and happily ever after isn’t true,
Even then, I won’t stop loving you.”

~ Manticore The Great

“This is true love — you think this happens every day?

~ Westley from The Princess Bride
