I did, I do, I will

24 years ago I found this Studmuffin on a dance floor in Northpole, Alaska.


For 4 years I had been playing the field HARDCORE……marriage was not on my agenda…..

Me and Phil 1985

It took him only 3 weeks……and I knew……..

wedding 6

We were engaged…….25 years and 7 months ago today………..

wedding 13

25 years ago today, we were married in the St. George, UT Temple. (I belong to the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints or LDS) It was all very serious and beautiful……

Then of course there was a reception and it was anything BUT serious……

wedding 3 One might wonder what in the world I was doing here…..I have no recollection…

wedding 12

I do know that here I had just taken off my garter and Phil had to steal the show by revealing that he had worn these most HATED of socks the entire reception!!! I thought I had thrown these away before we left Alaska but he had gone dumpster diving ---ACK!!

HAPPY QUARTER OF A CENTURY POOD!!!!! Each year has been better than the last—I can’t wait till 50! LOVE YOU!

Just a little ending note::::::::::

As I was going through my box looking for pictures to scan for this post, I came across a lot of memorabilia. I even found our plane tickets that we had used from Alaska to Utah. I thought I had kept them for a memento of our “special” day. Then I turned it over……

wedding 2 Yeah, it had to be for a memento of our “special” day…that's it.

You’re welcome.

My “Someday” is now—And my Prince has come………..


It was my birthday the other day.

Other than the fact that I am now just so much dust blowing in the wind AND that dust is covered in copious amounts of snot from the head cold I am suffering through…………..

It was a lovely day.

My husband is doing his 2 weeks off work thing right now. When he is off work he likes to take the dog for a hike everyday and get the mail. (Makes you wonder where my mailbox is, doesn’t it??)

When he returned from the mail hike on my birthday, he handed me some magazines and the envelope pictured above.

My husband is NOT a romantic man. Which would explain a lot about why I would feel the need to take a picture of said envelope and blog about it.

It is my new favorite thing in the whole universe.

He said it cost eighty cents to send because it was extra full of love.

Yeah, mushy AND did I mention it was my new favorite thing in the whole universe?!

Now we just need to get him some art lessons because that picture on that stamp does not look like

Any guesses?
