And at Mama’s Empty Nest, October 1 is an important day.
A day important enough to post a picture.
In our “Year of the Weddings,” it seems appropriate to publish a picture of how it all began.
Thirty-five years ago today – yes, 35! – a twenty-something young lady only had eyes for her twenty-something boyfriend. And he asked her to marry him.
She accepted and on this day, October 1, they promised each other they would travel though life’s ups and downs together, here and there, through thick and thin, until death would they part.
Thirty-five years, three children, and many moves later with both wonderful experiences and difficult days too under their belt, this young couple is now middle aged and empty-nested, but having the time of their lives celebrating their children’s marriages in the “Year of the Weddings.”
Yes, that young couple in this wedding photo is this empty nest mama and her husband on October 1, 1977.
Happy Anniversary, my husband! The best is yet to come!
