Maybe it’s May – 36th Anniversary Edition

Yep, 36 years ago yesterday at a Vista Point overlooking Lake Tahoe in Zephyr Cove, Nevada, my husband and I got married.

I say we have a fairy tale story…

Oh, those days before kids when we were kids.

I found this little couple and put them in my fairy garden in front of the studio.  Kinda looks like us, no? 

We recreated the moment at our 25th anniversary.  I didn’t think about it or I’d have stood on the other side.   

One of our first “concert selfies.”  I love this picture of us.

Six years ago we had this “portrait” done in Reno, one of our favorite places to spend our anniversary.

Benihana has been another of our anniversary go-to spots for many years.  We couldn’t eat inside this time but we did get take out and ate at home while watching a movie, “Call of the Wild.”  

Not gonna lie, the last 10 years have been really hard on a lot of levels.  It has tested me to the limit and sometimes it felt like I was just hanging on by a string.  Sometimes I even considered letting go.  But then I take a breath and realize that it is life and we’ll get through it.  Here’s to love and another 36 years.

  3. One of the surprising things I’ve found is that even in the longest of marriages people contemplate leaving. Happy anniversary!

      When we were first married I wouldn’t have thought that true and never quite understood divorces after 25 years or more of marriage but now I can see how it happens. Thanks for stopping by!

    Hi Janet – Happy Anniversary! We hit 37 years in February and I know what you mean about times where we hang on by a thread. I also came to see that riding those times out have led to better times and I’m so glad I didn’t walk away. Doing life with someone who loves you and knows you is such a blessing and one I don’t take for granted. Being stuck at home together for the last few months has confirmed that if we can survive that we’re doing okay! Loved your Wild West pic!

  5. Happy anniversary! No one said that marriage was all fun and games… it takes a lot of work. But, those who are willing to do the work have many more days of satisfaction and fun then those who don’t. I’m glad that you are reaping the benefits of your mutual love and hard work.

    Congrats on your anniversary. Your photos are fun and make me think back to our younger days.

    [I’m glad to see you posting. I hadn’t heard from you in a while and considering how things are right now, I get worried when bloggy friends disappear.]

      Ally, that’s so sweet. I actually have been a bit busy with work, thank goodness, and doing some weed pulling in the backyard. I’m hoping to start back to more frequent postings. Just like with my concert series, it is fun to see the hubs and I in our youth. My wedding album is another project I want to do soon.
