Happy Anniversary


Today is our Wedding Anniversary.

We hit a milestone.

25 years!

Way back In 1985 we were married on a sunny and perfect Michigan day.

Many friends and family joined us.

Great food, great music, and great fun.

And dancing. Lots of dancing.

I did the “Gator” in my wedding dress.

An insanely fun day.

And we were the last to leave our Reception.

Didn’t get to our hotel till 4:00 AM

Had to leave for the airport at 6:30 AM

Can you say hangover?

12 hour flight to Hawaii sitting next to another passenger drinking whiskey and smoking cigarettes at 10:30 in the morning. I am gagging.

Aloha! Pick up convertible car rental. Oh my hair!

Arrive at The Turtle Bay Resort. Can I go to bed now? Please? Wake up 15 hours later.

Spend the week exploring the entire island of Oahu. Gorgeous! Another Mai Tai? Yes, thank you!

One week was not enough. Vow to return again someday.

Fly home to Detroit and move in with new husband’s former room mate in a 1 bedroom apartment for 3 weeks as we wait for new condo to be finished.

Move to new condo. Pose for photo shown above. This is the beginning of something wonderful!

Happy Anniversary to me and my very handsome husband!

Happy 25th to y'all!!! I love couples who've been married a long time. We've been married 36 years. ♥

Oh, Lisa!!! A big Happy Anniversary to you and Hubby! What a milestone . . . a QUARTER century you've been together :o)

Our receptions sound exactly the same - a late night of celebrating and up early to catch a plane. Hey, that's how we did back in the 80's, right,?! hehe We hit 25 years back in September.

Hope you two have some special plans for your silver celebration. Congrats!

Happy Anniversary, Lisa! I celebrated 25 years this year, as well. Wasn't 1985 a great year for wedding songs? : ) Where did the time go, though.

Congrats, Lisa! It was a GREAT wedding. I think you are the only bride, who I've witnessed, to dance the gator in her dress!! I remember that I was so surprised to see you do that! :D

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Thanks to everyone for the Anniversary wishes. My husband is away in Germany so there's been no celebrating. We hope to take a trip somewhere later this year when things quiet down for him at work.

And Hi Mary! It's fun to see a comment from you here!

Happy anniversary. I love that picture, it brings back memories. I was married in 1988 so that was my era too.

Erin said...

Well Happy 25th Anniversary to you. It is a big deal! I am so glad to see a photo of you even if it is 25 yrs. ago:)

My parents just celebrated 50 on the 22nd of July.

I know that I am late but Happy Anniversary.

I'm a tad late to the party but Happy Anniversary! What a great pic and I loved how you summed up the marriage and honeymoon in just a few lines.

I see you liked Geraniums even then!
