Thomas and Lori, Thirty Years

Today is our 30th Wedding Anniversary. It's a Tuesday, and we actually celebrated with family over the weekend, so tonight Thomas is cooking dinner for me. It's a simple, low-key anniversary day. 

I wanted to make a post but really couldn't think of much to write about. I mean, I'm amazed sometimes that we've stayed married for thirty years, but then after I think about it a minute, I know that I am not really amazed.  We've put up with a lot from each other, and we've been through a lot together, and we've made two very wonderful children together -- why wouldn't we still be married? :)

So in honor of our marriage I'm going to re-post a blog post from 2005 that I actually wrote about my father, but has to do with mine and Thomas' marriage.

Here it is:

Weathering life's ups and downs together adds a special bond that you often take for granted but could never replace. Congratulations!

I'm certain that the daughter has the depth of character in common with her father.
I could get into my(Stolen from the Leakey family)Africa is actually the cradle of all humanity speech, but I really don't think you need it :).

How wonderful--congrats! My late husband and I were almost at 28 when he died. We had been together 33 years and were hoping for more, but that's not the way it worked out. Enjoy!
