How to celebrate...

It seems like yesterday that this was us:
But, as you may be able to tell by the photos flanking ours. . .you know, our kids' wedding photos. . .it's been a few years since we "tied the knot."  As a matter of fact, Mr. Pretty and I were recently doing the math, and the end of February marks our silver anniversary!  It seems like just yesterday that we made all the promises, wide-eyed and all smiles (with a few happy tears), and pledged to remain. . .through better and worse, sickness and health, richer and poorer, yada-yada-yada. . .and we placed bands of gold on the third fingers of our left hands.  But the fact that our youngest got married, and our oldest made us grandparents last year. . .
Well, that really brings it home.  It's definitely been 25 years!  There's been better and worse, and sickness and health, and richer and poorer, and more.  There were times that it was so difficult that I didn't really know if we were gonna make it, but we did, and I am so glad!  If you had asked back then, I am sure I would have said that I'd rather not have to endure the hard parts. . .but there's something about going through the difficulties together that has grown us both as individuals and as a couple.  As high school sweethearts, we have basically grown up together, and I love him more than I ever thought possible. . .exponentially more than I already did on our wedding day!

Sooo, how does Pretty celebrate 25 years with Mr. Pretty?  Well, I started by finishing that sweater so I could wear it. . .
. . .and then there was a little trip over to Texas Roadhouse for a steak dinner.  Woo! Hoo!  Yep, we are wild and crazy still!!

Thanks for indulging me.  Now, back to life as usual (and, of course, knitting).  
Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
