Our 25th Wedding Anniversary

This week, we celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.  Husband says I am trying to do too much in a small space and time and that I should spread out 25 years of information and keep you all on the edge of your seats and wanting more.

Beginning at the beginning…..there are some pictures coming…..

We met in the college cafeteria in 1978.

Our college yearbook pictures, the Spring of 1979.

Our wedding day.  My friend Karen was almost 8 months pregnant when she did the cake.  It was her first wedding cake, and she said she would never again be willing to mix those autumn colors, so this was truly one of a kind.

This year, our celebration got spread out over several days.
The actual day of October 18th, we went to McDs for breakfast, then carried on usual routines.

Thursday evening, we walked in a cold drizzle to ISU’s student center auditorium for an Allison Krauss concert.
The music was wonderful, and the band’s banter between songs was all feel-good friendly.  Working two tickets into the budget for such a popular show was about all we wanted to handle.

Saturday evening, we went out for Chinese at The Grande Cafe.  We’ve had at least two other anniversary dinners there.
The egg rolls and wonton soup are the yummiest.

It is amazing how many people read the paper before church.
I got all kinds of good vibes this Sunday morning.

We’ve had some fun, and hope you have as well.

~~love and Huggs, Diane

    Congatulations on 25 years of making the magic happen. Jay and I would have loved to have gone to your concert. Allison Krauss is one of our favorites also.

    Your wedding cake was a true work of art. Your friend Karen created something very memoriable.

    How young you were and looked so well together. But that much hasn’t changed because you still look good together and the love shows through in your faces.

    I agree spread it out!
