Can you believe that Jeff and I have been married 29 years today? We met in 83 and married in 84, time sure flies.
Let's travel down memory lane shall we?
What Jeff looked like when I first met him, didn't see his real face for a few days. He worked at the haunted house, I sold Ontario Pork – he came up to my booth to get a schnitzel sandwich and that was it, love at first sight. I guess the way to a man't heart is through his stomach. Could this have been my first time at having a thing for vampires? When I look at this picture, I can still smell his cologne mixed with gasoline that worked the chain saw he used to scare the daylights out of people. I loved his accent, those teeth and his hands, he has the cutest thumbs. Yeah he reads this every morning and I can see him rolling his eyes…ha!
Thank goodness he cleaned up pretty good, didn't matter I had already fallen for him. My cutie patootie. This was the start of the big glasses. Although it was probably the fad then.
Young love eh? This was in winter quarters in Florida. Look at that perm…ha!
A year later, Mr. & Mrs. Gibbs
Another crazy perm and look at those huge glasses, they almost touch my lip, I could probably stick my tongue out and clean them without taking them off my face. Look Ma, no hands! Here we are opening up our wedding presents. We moved to Arizona two months later.
And here we are in Fiji this year, this might be one of my favorite pictures of us lately. We look pretty good I think, for an old married couple. I thank God every day for this man, I don't know what I would do without him and never want to find out. I love you honey, here's to 29 more years!!
Oh wait, I said a peek…
There ya have it….will share what it is another day.
Have an awesome Saturday and thanks for stopping in.
Happy Anniversary, Di! And here's to many, many more! :^)
what a great love story. Kudos to you for even having early pics on hand. We've just had our 24th anniversary and the thought of trying to find our early pics makes me shudder. Maybe I should get on that now for our 25th……..it'll take me that long.
