"They" say you have to work at marriage.  We have never had to work at our marriage.  When you are married to your very best friend, it comes easy.  We are not saying we have not had problems, just that we have never had any problems in our relationship.

Twenty-nine years ago today, we were married.  We were married by a dear friend of ours who subsequently married two of our children.  Our wedding party was our children.  We were married in our yard.  Our friends brought food and we had a terrific party.  Doug had made a dance floor for the yard and everyone had a ball.  I made all the dresses. My Mom did the flowers.   I think the total cost of the wedding was $100.00 and that was the wine.

Graeme was just 8 1/2 months old.

Happy Anniversary. I agree completely with your definition of your marriage - problems but not with the relationship. That describes our 29 years also. And I loved seeing your wedding pictures.

Happy anniversary. It's wonderful to be able to reminisce through the pictures we took years ago and still have. Those pictures help jog the memories of wonderful times.

A little late...but happy anniversary. Looks like a nice simple, lovely time had by all. Just having Kelly's wedding last year, I know that we couldn't have bought material for her dress for $100.00.

Happy Anniversary! It's fun to look back at the pictures.
