Congratulations to the lovely couple! What a wonderful accomplishment.

Would you care to share how you met, how he proposed, and a bit about the wedding? I just love a good "Love Story!"

Congratulations!

I'll tack on to O.J.'s suggestion and ask for some sage advice -- perhaps about sticking together through difficulties?

My DH and I are gratefully content together now (48 years of marriage). Early years, not so much! "Grow old along with me, The best is yet to be, The last, for which the first is made..." seems to ring true.

Many thanks for all the nice compliments and good wishes! I don't have any magical advice except the fact that we are and have always been best friends. We try to treat each other with dignity and respect. If he does something that "bugs me", I tell him instead of complaining about him to my friends, etc. It works for us!
In answer to the question of how we met, Bob was stationed at DMAFB in Tucson and we lived in the same neighborhood. My 4-year-old daughter invited him to come home with us one day as she was chatting with him. He accepted her invitation and he's been around ever since. LOL

Just think, in 5 more years, you can celebrate your 50th! Start preparing for it. That time will fly by faster than you will want.

What are beautiful couple you are. I love your outfit, BTW! Wow, your husband sure is tall! Of course, this comes from a vertically challenged person.

Keep on doing what you're doing. It's keeping you young and happy together.
