Yesterday Ivan and I celebrated our 22nd anniversary - it feels like yesterday and also a lifetime. We took the time out to look back at our wedding album and laughed at how thin we both were - of course the very large glasses also brought a few laughs.

It had been our intention to go out to dinner together, but Ivan's heavy work schedule at the moment, both our tiredness, and a diagnosis from my foot x-ray of a rather nasty 'heel-spur' and 'planter facitis' confirmed that walking around is not a good idea for me. So instead we picked up yummy Thai take-away and shared a lovely evening with our 3 wonderful children. This is what 22 years have done for us - a night at home is much more desirable.

So mid-week, I am planning an afternoon at university today and tomorrow and the usual housework. Life continues as always - even if it is 22 years on - I LOVE IT!

Congratulations once again Beverly! It's so awesome to hear of or see couples who are still so much in love after 22 years. I only wish I had this in my life, maybe one day, just not today! lol

When do you start uni again? Or have you already started? I'm nearing the end of my 3rd year, but as I've mentioned I'm going to do a few summer courses. One more year and I'm done! I can't wait!

Enjoy all that you do and do all that you enjoy! ;-)

Sounds like the perfect way to celebrate 22 years, Beverly. Congratulations to you both. :)

Beverly you need to tell Darlin that you come from good married stock with both your and Ivan's parents making 48 years of happy married life. oh silly me Darlin can read this comment anyway.

Mom...yes I read this and WOW! 48 years of wedded bliss, you've been married for as long as I've been alive, and then a wee bit. Congratulations and I wish you many, many more years of pure love! I keep hoping to find that type of love but at this age, I think that I'm giving up. Not really giving up but I'm sure that I'll never see a 50th wedding anniversary! lol
