Happy Anniversary, Babe

Mr. Greenjeans and I have been married 21 years, today. We went to dinner last evening at a nice place up in the mountains beside a lake. It was a tad chilly but a nice break from the valley heat.

We were married in the mountains with a view of the dessert. The year was like this where the wildflowers were lovely. We first met through our dogs and those dogs were in the wedding and sitting beside us in the wedding photos.

I won't say that 21 years has been all ease and bliss - it has not. But we've hung in there and in these latter years have been rewarded with a very good marriage. Of course it can be related to good pre-marriage agreements. Ours went like this:

Me: Do you like animals?
Him: Uh Huh

Me: I want a couple of kids, how about you?
Him: Uh, Maybe. Do you know where TV guide got to?

See, good communication is the key to wedded perfection.

Rather, He has done an enormous amount of adapting ;-).

Happy Anniversary! (And, while we didn't have any dogs in our wedding, one of our dogs has been in someone else's wedding.)

Hm, scary. I was also married in the mountains with a view of the desert. I think I'd rather have had your view of the dessert. (Gotta love the good typos!)

Happy Anniversary to you both.
