Dancing Together for 30 Years - January 9th

Happy Anniversary to us.  It really does not seem possible that when this 30 year old mother of a 7 year old daughter.........


asked this 25 year old marathon runner (and co-worker)



 to come visit her at the cabin on Lake Huron, where they ( Sarah and I)  were spending vacation time with her parents, that it would lead to this.


Which.... lead to this


                                                              and this just 6 months later.


On this day 30 years ago, in Michigan,  the temperature was a chill factor of -50 degrees.  So where did we go for our honeymoon?  Toronto!  burrrrrrr.  Our car wouldn't start so I had to call my sister and her husband along with their young daughter,, to pick us up at the hotel, in their Honda, to take us to the train station in Sarnia.   I think that was the beginning of the "Farkle Family" trips.  We have always called all the goof ups on vacations "Farkle Family" events.  Now I know why.



Soon we became a family of five.



                    This song was popular when this romance began so it immediately became one of ours.


I still hope we're dancing for another 30 years.

Happy Anniversary!! Isn't it something how you end up meeting your soul-mate? I know you have lots of wonderful memories tucked away, and my wish for you is to continue making those memories together for at least another 30. What a sweet couple you are! Big hugs.

Love your blog, read it daily, congratulations upon 30 years of a beautiful marriage, what a lovely family you have, many many more years of happiness and love, we will be married 38 years in may of this year, time seems to fly right by..we have only one daughter and miss her she lives on the east coast thousands of miles and we visit a lot, but it is not the same as when she comes home to see us which is always about 300 plus miles from us, but we take it and are darned happy at that, talk to her each day..The hotel you blogged about we would love to visit once in our lives, lived in San Diego, before I married was only 18 at the time and then some more years, went to the Del as it was called many times, oh, my what a palace in my opinion and the foods, I had never had Lobster Thermador before I dined at the Del, always with navy officers or marine officers who were pilots, this when the Vietnam war was raging on and on, san diego was a navy/marine city and life was just about perfect for me, in college, working lots of jobs, then landed a job at USNTC united states naval training center oh, my goodness..still remember commercial planes landing right over my head as I walked to my office near the bridge where recruits got their 9 weeks of training and becoming men of the Navy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is gone now and so is much of the Navy in san diego, california but not the Del...happy happy happy many many more years of wedded bliss..you deserve all the happiness and love in this world...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
