Happy Groundhog’s Day, Happy Anniversary, & Happy Birthday! February is a big month for us!



February is always a very big month for us. Not only is it Groundhog’s Day, but we also celebrate our anniversary and Steve’s birthday. We’ve been married forty-two years and sometimes it seems like it’s just been a heartbeat since we were first married, and yet, so much has happened. And yes, that is a ’72 Pinto we were driving!


The first night we spent as husband and wife was at the Holiday Inn on the Altamont in Livermore, and I don’t even know if the hotel is still there! I was twenty-two and Steve was twenty-seven and I thought we knew all we needed to know about life. That’s because I was twenty-two! If you had told me I’d be sixty-four in the twinkling of an eye, I would have laughed and laughed!


We went to Disneyland on our honeymoon, and it was amazing to me. Little did I realize that forty-two years later we would be going to Disney World nearly every week, and I’d find it just as amazing, and we’d sometimes get to share the experience with our grandsons.


Steve took me to Tijuana, and yes, this was actually the first time I was ever out of the USA! It was just the beginning of all the adventures we’d take together, and I have say that I’m glad we shared this journey together.


Our last stop on our honeymoon was Las Vegas, and it was there we ran out of money and had to go home. It wasn’t that we gambled, it was just that we ran out of money because we didn’t have that much to begin with.


I know these old honeymoon photos are pretty faded, but the memories are just as vivid as they ever were. To my husband, Steve I’d like to say, “Happy Groundhog’s Day, happy birthday, and happy anniversary! I’m so glad we found each other. Thank you for sharing these forty-two years with me, and also sharing your own spiritual journey of the heart with me.


Life is a fragile thing, and I think we all need to hold our loved ones close and tell them how much they mean to us. Thank you for stopping by!
