Looking back at those two fresh-faced kids makes me feel really old!
On a beautiful day in Ft. Collins, Colorado, thirty years ago today, Boyd and I exchanged vows and started our life together. There were clouds and thunderstorms that day, but the storms added to the atmosphere of the event and eventually cleared. Like that day, through the last thirty years there has been choppy weather at times. We always seem to weather the rough times and come out stronger. I am blessed to have a caring, sensitive, supportive, spiritual, loving man by my side through it all. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect husband or father to share my life.
We celebrated at EBT, a restaurant we've heard about for many years, but had never dined at for one reason or another. It was a perfect dinner with a selection of delicious food on the menu—dishes that didn't include pork or shellfish but did have an abundance of choices other than exotic options for this girl with simple tastes. We dined in an antique elevator from an old Kansas City department store, sipping martinis with baked brie, then wine with our yummy dinners and ended with two scrumptious desserts.
While we ate we talked about Pearl of course, but all of the good things, and not so great goings on in our life. What is perfect are our two daughters and son-in-law who make us so proud, both with their achievements but also with their senses of humor, their care of us, each other and the world, and their big hearts. What wonderful people they've turned out to be.
