25 years ago . . .

I Thee Wed

On a cool, overcast Sunday AppleJack and me said "I do and I will."  We exchanged our wedding vows in a friends log house in front of a roaring fire.  The event was small and simple.

To Have and To Hold

Prior to exchanging our vows we sat down with a legal pad and pen.  The legal pad was not for making wedding plans, it was for making life plans.  Each of us made two lists:  what it takes for this marriage to work and the deal breaker.  After the lists were made, there was a lengthy discussion.  Based on the lists and discussion we were either going to get married or . . .

Like most marriages and couples we have had the highs and lows, the ups and downs, the good and not so good.  We took the wedding vows seriously and our commitment to each other more seriously. 

Earlier today, I asked AppleJack "do you know what today is?"  He replied, "It's Thursday."  We are hopeless romantics!
