Paty Jager on the 12th and myself on the 15th. I love remembering my wedding and I love thinking about all the romantic things my husband has done over the years. Most important of all, I simply treasure setting aside a time each year where we think about our marriage, renew a committment for the future, and celebrate our memories and our time together.
This picture was taken outside the castle, turned county seat, where we got married in Dunoon, Scotland. For those unfamiliar with Scotland this is in the highlands, part of Argyle county.
It was a magical time of connecting with our heritage, seeing a part of the world neither of us had visited before and enjoying a couple of weeks away from the daily grind of work, careers, and family obligations. We had both been married before, so we wanted to really focus on us as a couple.
Tonight I go to a book group. Wednesday my husband rehearses with one of
the two groups where he plays guitar. Thursday he rehearses with our
church choir, and the culmination of the week will be back at our local
pub next Sunday with music and the two groups my husband sings and plays with.
Coyote's Bar and Grill, in Hillsboro, Sunday at 7pm and catch us with The Blenders (an acoustic trio), and The Cat House Band, a classic rock and roll band. I'll be the ecstatic roadie and fan singing, clapping, enjoying fun music, good food, and yes a couple of beers too.
Accepting that you really DO get better as you get older. You can choose to be wiser. You can choose to love each other more and make all those little picadilloesyou hate into funny moments and "that is just who he/she is" memories
And of course, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE in all its mysterious incarnations.
