NATIONAL SPOUSES DAY
Most of my steady readers know how much I love my husband but when I saw today was NATIONAL SPOUSES DAY I had to brag yet again. My spouse for over 50 years is loving, caring, sweet and kind. But not only is Rich my spouse, he is my business partner and we have worked side by side in our business for over 50 years. We are together 24/7 and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Throughout our 50 years of being with my spouse, we have gone through loving moments, happy moments, sad moments, and tragic moments but through all our moments, each one has made our love stronger every day.
Rich grows the most beautiful roses and they are usually budding or in bloom from March to December. Not a day goes by that he doesn’t bring me a rose every morning or evening. Look at some of the gorgeous roses from Rich’s rose garden.
There is one thing we differ in and that is our personalities. Rich is more on the serious side while I’m the happy-go-lucky kind of gal. He hardly ever smiles for a picture and when people ask why, he says that he tried that once and didn’t like it. Now of course he says this with a straight face as everyone else is cracking up. I love these pictures as we were heading to my 50th high school reunion last year. I was taking a selfie shot and asked Rich to smile. I told him I think we need a retake and in that picture, Rich actually managed to find a smile! LOL
As we celebrate NATIONAL SPOUSES DAY, I am taking a look back at our wedding on July 29, 1967 and our 50th wedding anniversary on July 29, 2017. Fifty wonderful years making memories with my spouse has been a dream come true!
If you are or have been a spouse, I’d love for you to leave a comment on how many years and any special memories.
