Day 27: An Anniversary, sort of

If I had stayed married to my first husband, today would have been my 25th wedding anniversary. I can honestly say I am SO thankful that I am NOT celebrating my silver anniversary today!

On the other hand, today is also my and Jon's 12 1/2 year anniversary (we were married on July 27, 1996). Apparently when Jon and I got married it was exactly 12 1/2 years after my first wedding (January 27, 1984). Anyway, when I looked at the calendar this morning I remembered that first wedding anniversary date and I started calculating. These are my wedding rings and my 10th anniversary band that my sweet husband bought me a couple of years ago.


  1. You were married two weeks after Paul and I were. I am also thankful not to be married to my first husband, and that was in 1980 -- almost 29 years ago! Is that possible???

  2. I was also married the first time in 1984 and SO glad to he walked out on me! I didn't realize how miserable I was.. or how happy I could be without him! Gary and I just celebrated 15 happy years this past October!
