Twyla on Tuesday

Hello friends!
I'd like to introduce you to my husband.
This May we will be married 32 years,
1979, a long time ago.
We were so young, a lot to learn.
He took me to McDonald's our first evening of married life.
Yes, I'm still married to him :)

He's a man of simple tastes.  He still prefers hamburgers
and hot dogs to fancy meals.  We've shared a lot of fun
and laughs over the years. 
He puts up with my yarn spilling from baskets all over the house.

I almost didn't marry him because it meant going to
Germany with him in the service and leaving
my family behind. 
Turns out it was the smartest thing I ever did.

Thanks for visiting today!
Wishing you much happiness!

Look at you two cuties! ♥ I'm so glad that someone has been married at least one year longer than me. Then you know how much I've suffered! Ha-ha! Just kiddin'(sort of!) ☺ You know what I mean... The rocky times are soooo rocky but when we have the good times,I'm always glad I stuck in out!

You two look so cute in those stocks! what law did you break? ☺
I'm glad you got to live in Germany. Moving away from home helps you to grow up fast, eh? I only moved to Texas but compared to Washington state, it was a whole different world.

Any plans for your anni this year? We were so exhausted from moving last year that we hardly did a thing so I hope we can do more this time.

Have a great day, Twyla! You make the world a better place, too! ♥

I LOVE hearing about people who make their marriage work and are happy doing it!! (The news is always full of those who don't and aren't.) Traveling to Germany for a few years sounds exciting to me! :-) Anyway, sounds like he is a keeper!! :-) You two look cute together!

Happy Anniversary! That time away from family was a growing up experience wasn't it? I did the same thing...a little more than a decade before you did. I lived in Ramstein. Where were you?

Congratulations on 32 years of wedded bliss. You've been married as long as I have been alive ;) With so many marriages ending in divorce these days, it's so nice to see a couple who are still happy together after all those years. Many more happy years to you two.
