11 ( missing 6) + 21 = 32 total (s/b 38)

It's our Anniversary today. We were married in 1972 on June 24th. Then we had a six year split after 11 years. We also got married on June 24th in 1989. (I thought that way he wouldn't forget the date) How is that for a story. So we really don't keep count, it just our Anniversary Day!


You can see our wedding in '72 our second wedding in '89 and a picture of us today.

You can click to enlarge this picture.


I fell in love with this song when I was watching Hairspray. So the part of my husband is being played by James Woods and I am being played by John Travolta. (my second love) I hope you find time to watch it because it's very cute. Watch for the shooting stars when they are dancing in the laundry!





I decided that this is officially our song now. Speaking of songs we, never had one before. My husband didn't like to dance so we didn't do the normal wedding dance song. We actually had our wedding at church, the dinner in the basement of the church. Then it was a big open house at my parents. My dad had remodeled the basement for this occasion and it had a lovely bar. Outside in the backyard a bar was also set up in the garage and the music was blaring. We left for our honeymoon which was at Mackinaw Island in Michigan but we were told that people stayed until 3am dancing and having fun! (remember this was the early 70's)


I love you honey ~ ALWAYS ~







P.S. You want to know about the always? Yes please! When we got married we had our rings engraved. I put Love always in his ~ he would only put Love in mine. I should have seen the signs.

What a great story :) My anniversary is the 23rd of June - ahh so close to yours! I would have chosen the same date, too, if I were to marry the same guy again.

Great song - it's a keeper.
