|The husband and I doing Vintage|
January sure is going by fast - Next month, on the 16th is our wedding anniversary. We'll be married 15 years and yes, it is a second marriage for both of us.
If I combined my first marriage of 24 years and these last 15, I have spent a total of 39 years in a marriage. My first marriage, I was young, and the ex was my HS sweetheart. I was 15 and he was 18. Boy, if I had it to do OVER again...
I'm pleased to say, that #2 is still growing strong and we hope this is our last. We've had our tough times, like when my first born son died, in 2003 - We had only been married 1 year. I totally shut down and gave up. When all the adult kids came back home to live, due to losing jobs - that was hard on our marriage but we got through it. This one is a keeper. He also pisses me off at times, and doesn't load the dishwasher the way I like and I know I do some things that send him through the roof! All in all, I think we'll make it, till one of us gives up the ghost.
So, we've been talking about what to do, and where to go. He likes to get away on our anniversary - The only problem with that, is our anniversary date is the 16th - and it's always expensive due to Valentines Day and President's weekend. Prices go way up and stay up. We either, have to do it NOW or wait till March, which we have done before.
Yeah, I don't have many regrets in life, but choosing the 16th of February was just dumb.
