THIRTY YEARS today!  Yep...that's how long Andy and I have been married!!  Can you believe it?  I can't!!!  

Thirty years sounds so LOOONNNNGGGG...but it doesn't feel like it's been that long.  Even with the moves, the kids, the grandkids, the job changes, the automobiles purchased, the remodeling of  two different houses, etc., etc., etc., ...all of the things that have occurred over the many years...it still seems like it's only been about 8 years or so.  After all, how is it possible that I could even be OLD ENOUGH to have been married 30 years???    Oh, that's right...I married when I was 6 years old!  LOL 

Us with my mom and 2 of my sisters and 2 of my nieces...

Funny...I look older than six years old in those pictures!  LOL

These past 30 years have been a roller coaster ride... sometimes fun...sometimes frightening,  but we take each day as it comes. 

And then, seven years ago, Paul and Trinity, our son and daughter-in-law, said their vows on this same date...July 3, 2005!!

So a Happy 7th Anniversary shout out to them, too!!   Love you both!  :)  Pretty soon it will be THEM saying to themselves, "Thirty years?  How can that be?"  LOL

They had a much better photographer than we did, so their pictures turned out great!  LOL  At our wedding we had a friend who thought he knew how to use his fancy camera...but didn't!  :(    



  1. Happy Anniversary, Loretta!! The time does fly doesn't it?

  2. Thank you! Happy 30th Anniversary to y'all! We love and miss y'all!

  3. Hey, that's me! I can't believe it's been over 30 years since Andy called me a little boy...
    Happy Anniversary Loretta & Andy and Paul & Trinity!
    Love you,

  4. Loved the pix...great way to walk "down memory lane" and re-visit special events!!

    Of course, I can't really believe it's only been 30 years...you haven't aged a bit, dah-lin'!! <:-)


  5. Happy Anniversary! Time flies when you are with the right fella!
