Super Special Favorite Number

Super Special Favorite Number

Do you have a favorite number?  I have always liked 13 and never consider it unlucky.  After our 7 grandchildren were born, everything seems to turn to 7.   But for today my super special favorite number is 50!   I’ll get the small stuff out-of-the-way first, one month ago on June 15th, I reached 50,000 views on my blog that I started on December 25, 2014.  So that’s my 50 plus a few extra zeros.  I like keeping an eye on my stats and see where they go and what blog posts get the most views.  But the big super excitement for the number 50 is this is the number of years my hubby and I have been married.

 

 

 

Back on July 29, 1967 I married the love of my life whom I met on a blind date on Christmas 1965.   In two weeks, yes only 14 days, we will be going back to upstate New York to the church were we were married!  St. Anthony’s Italian Catholic Church is a beautiful old church in Schenectady, New York where hubby and I are excited to having our marriage blessed yet again, for the 7th time. (See there’s my favorite number 7)

 

We got re-married on our 25th wedding anniversary at Immaculate Conception in Glenville, NY, the church we belonged to when we moved. I love this picture of hubby’s mother and his favorite aunt.  I wore my oldest daughter’s wedding gown for my 25th anniversary wedding! We also had our 45th anniversary blessed at St. Anthony’s and then a few years later there was a fire in the sanctuary of this beautiful church. It took them almost two years to restore the inside and it’s ready for our 50th anniversary!

 

 

Here we are 50 years later, excitedly waiting until July 29th at 4:00 PM so we can be back in beautiful St. Anthony’s Church in Schenectady, New York to once again have our marriage blessed. The priest called a few weeks ago and even he was excited to have us come back to the church we were married in.  We now live in South Carolina and it takes about fourteen hours, non stop to drive up but it will be so worth it!

When hubby and I met on Christmas day 1965, I started writing a journal and always said I wanted to write a book about my love story. I never wrote a book, but I wrote a blog in December 2015, which was our 50th anniversary of when we met.   http://themarthareview.com/true-love-is-forever-strong/

Soon, I will be adding to that blog and writing about our 50th Anniversary on July 29, 2017.  Our 7th wedding, how exciting!
