25 Years!

Wedding Reception, Forest Park, Ohio  1986

Lucky me! On this day, a quarter century ago, I married my one and only love. She is the soul who makes me whole, and brings out the best of my being. To me, we make a tuneful tandem, a strumming lute and melodious voice blending together as one.

We spent our honeymoon in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, hiking, taking pictures, eating pancakes and pizza, taking pictures, etc.

In our marriage we have journeyed together, through highs and lows,
balancing along ridges, venturing into valleys, and facing the fog of parenting.

Marriage is a thrilling hike through a wonderful but unpredictable wilderness...

... on a path which we will continue to travel together
 for the next 25 years... or more.
