32 Years and Counting

Two posts in two days...amazing huh?  Well, this one is going to be short and sweet...and while you're picking yourself up off the foor, I'll continue...

Today is my 32nd wedding anniversary.  I'm married to one of the best people God ever created.  Everyone loves him!  I'm pretty sure my parents loved him more than me.  Anyway, I've written two previous posts about Dan and I and how we stayed married, so I'm not gonna write any of that gooey stuff in this post.  If you'd like to read them you can go here for the story of Dan & Gerri (it's a good one!) and you can go here for the reason why we've been able to stay together so long...contrary to what the Beatles may have told is not all you need.

Today at work someone commented on how being married over 30 years is such a rare thing these days.  Maybe.  But I don't think so.  I personally know eight couples off the top of my head that have been married more than 30 years.  So I don't think it's THAT rare....or maybe we just all run in rabid dogs...who knows.  The one thing I do know is that four out of the eight couples we know, we met through Little League.  So, maybe my husband is right after all (you have no idea how much it KILLS me to admit this!)...maybe baseball does make everything better...including marriage. 

Today's Quote: 

A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

  1. Congrats on your anniversary. We'll be married 38 years next month. I think it is a testament for sure to commitment these days. Too many marriages DON'T make it that far. Your husband sounds like a keeper! Here's to another 30!
