Anniversary Day

At the 2012 Cotton Bowl in Dallas

Today is our 48th anniversary. On the day you say I do, there are no guarantees about what the future will hold. I'm among the fortunate who have made it this far with far more positives over the years than negatives.

Besides loving one another, we like each other. We have fun together. We might not always agree, but we respect one another's opinion. We worship together, we work in our home with Ken taking care of the outside and me doing the inside, even though we will both help out wherever needed. We both like to travel, go out to eat, attend K-State sporting events and spend time with friends. We have a deep love for our kids and grandkids.

Ours was a small wedding. Read about it here. There are a couple pictures posted with the story. One was taken a year after our wedding and the other 4 years ago. We've changed in looks but not in the love we've shared all these years.

Have you written your wedding memories for your family  memory book? An anniversary is a good time to do it. If you haven't done so already, put it on your To-Do List. Your children and grandchildren will appreciate it.


  1. Great! I write a monthly feature for The Oregonian newspaper on long, successful marriages and couples who have a particularly inspiring story to tell. If you were local to metro Portland, I might just want to set up an interview . . . ;)

    1. Nancy has a lot of wonderful life lessons to tell, so do set up an interview. You won't regret it!

  2. Happy anniversary! What a wonderful milestone to celebrate together

  3. Congrats, Nancy! I think there's no greater accomplishment than a long and happy marriage.
