49 and Counting…

This is truly hard for me to fathom:
it has already been 
17,898 days,
roughly 429,567 hours
since Bill and I married
way back
 49 years ago, 
on April 15, 1967.  
Seems like it was yesterday, doesn’t it, dear?

April 15, 1967 ~ Louisville, KY
We were both young things 
in our early 20’s 
when we married 
and life has been 
good to us ever since.

It makes me happy that 
I found and married 
such an 
optimistic ~ loving ~ kind 
with a witty sense of humo
that cracks me up daily.

We will be celebrating it low-key this year, with a delicious dinner at a favorite restaurant here in the Chicago area:  filet mignon for me, strip steak for him, with all the trimmings…
Toasting to our 49 years 
of wedded bliss
and Income Tax Day!
