They Said It Wouldn't Last!

Yesterday - April 4, 2011 - Warren and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. If you were one of those people who were part of our companion crowd 25 years ago, you'd probably be shaking your head thinking, "That is unbelievable!" We've changed a lot over the years...

We met at a Denver Zephyr's baseball game at Mile High Stadium. Between innings, Warren asked me to dance to a Glenn Miller song they were playing ("String of Pearls). So, our first encounter was dancing on the bleachers. We might have had a few beers tucked away at the time...
And then, out of the blue a few months later, WE WERE GETTING MARRIED!! And we did, and we've had a wonderful/adventurous/exciting/heartbreaking/heartwarming life together. 

Last night, over sushi at Haiku Restaurant (el yummo!!), we both agreed that our children were our greatest accomplishments. (This was before we came home to discover that Jonathan had talked on the phone all night and had not done any of the items we listed for him to take care of while we were out...) 

And we agreed that it's been hard - adopting two children, dealing with their special needs, missing Katie, being parents of an almost-16-year-old...and missing lots of the things and people we've left behind over the years. But we're not sure if and/or how we can change that. So, it's still sort of hard. But not horrible.

Happy Anniversary, dear Warren. You are a wonderful husband. I will dance on the bleachers with you any time. XO
