(Meaning we have two threes for the number of our years in wedded bliss.) Yes, it is that time of year again when we are reminded of the committment we made before God and witnesses at North Park Covenant Church in 1976. Because it was also the 200th birthday of our county then, we received a few gifts that made note of the fact such as Liberty Bell shaped bookends and red, white and blue housewares - and many crockpots and coffee mugs as well.
This is an unknown couple celebrating the Bicentennial - aren't they adorable? It would have been fun to have them as our wedding mascots. (Making me wonder if someone has taken a picture of the two of us recently and one day we will appear on their blogs as the "seasoned" ones!)
It just feels so wonderful to have had these years together. And being blessed with Anne and John and later, Jed and Kari is but the frosting on a very tasty cake with a few unexpected morsels thrown in every now and then. Life, sweet married life. Happy Anniversary, Wes!

ah yes, happy wedded bliss. Our son Scott and his lovely wife are celebrating their 4th anniversary today. Isn't it a tad ironic that they share your anniversary and our son David and his lovely wife share Anne and Jed's date.

Happiest of Anniversaries to you and Wes ... love, Sandi
